4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Pours a well carbonated light copper color with a one finger off white head. Aroma is of floral, citrus and pine hops, and a little sweet malt note. Taste is complex, with citrus, pine, and floral hop notes, light tropical fruit flavors and a little malt balance lingering in there, but the hops stay on your palate with a nice bitterness. Very good session-able IPA.

Pours a light amber. Aroma is very citrus in hops. The head is about one finger and dissipates rather quickly. The malt background is hardly there. The taste is all citrus and aromatic hops. Hearty and yet very tasty. Sort of reminds me of Pliny the Younger.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a orange-amber color with a fluffy white head and some nice streaks of lacing.
S: The nose is nicely hoppy with some notes of grapefruit and bready malt.
T: The flavors mimic the nose for the most part. A nice citrus flavor along with a touch of sweet fruit and some bready malt. The finish is decently bitter.
M: The body is medium with a somewhat low level of carbonation, but that is likely due to the transcontinental journey in the growler.
D: A nice sessionable IPA that I was pleased to have a few glasses of and share with a couple friends.

On cask at the Coles/Mr. Goodbar cask festival in Buffalo. Appearance: Apple cider brown, small white head. Aroma: An absolute hop bomb, flowers, fruity - specifically mango, lots of pine too. Mouthwatering. Flavour: Very sweet initially leading to a spicy hoppiness with a delightful long bitter finish.

Had on draft, pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma is dominated by pine and grapefruit, with some earthyness in the background. Taste is bitter and tangy with the grapefuit coming through nicely. Very drinkable for 8%, with a light mouthfeel and crisp but not dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Senate in Cincinnati. Pours a clear gold-amber color with a creamy off-white head that leaves a perfect ring of lace with every decreasing level. Wow, the name of this one is spot-on; a huge floral hops aroma is the first thing I noticed, along with some sweet malts, citrus, and spice. The flavor is also very floral, with the hops mixed into a bouquet of floral notes and potpourri, with notes of sweet malts, citrus, resin, and nectar. Most notes are muted by the huge floral character. Dry floral finish. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation. Interesting IPA.

Sampled at AC Beer Fest. I really enjoyed this one. It had a great floral aroma, full of citrus and pine. Nice looking amber with a small lacing head. Flavor was very nice with a nice malt start followed by an intense hop kick. Very nice after taste. I’ll be looking for this one
