4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts and resiny pine hops as well as faint floral hop notes around the edges. The taste has a pleasing mix of sweet malts and bitter resiny pine hops that run headlong into firm floral hoppiness. This is nice drinking stuff where there’s a tasty balance of bitter and resiny hops as well as malt sweetened flavor hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and Tupalev, bottle courtesy of blankboy. Poured slightly hazy orange with a diminishing white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, acrylic paint, some malt, and wildflower notes. Taste is fairly strong citrusy hops, black pepper, a hint of malt, and, strangely, chlorine (think: swimming pool) - definitely not a sweet finish, although there’s enough light malt to notice. Mouthfeel quite acidic, average body. I liked it, but nothing special. UPDATED - original rating 7+4+6+3+12=3.2 ..... have to update based on several pints at Cole’s in Buffalo .... stunningly pungent floral aroma, almost as nice flavour - light body, decent carbonation, long bitter floral/citrus finish, not too boozy - just a terrific pint now, had to re-rate this.

3/4/12. 12oz bottle thanks to cbfobes! Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki pour. Musty, earthy, slightly sour aroma with a solid dose of hops. Dank, resinous flavor with a touch of sour and leafy, earthy hops. Not bad!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Orangish golden, slight haze, fairly large rocky white head, spotty lacing, virtually no carbonation. Huge overcooked vegetable nose, grainy as well. Vegetables on the tongue, slight sweetened tea leaf. At least it tastes a bit better than it smells. Semi-sweet, moderate body and mouthfeel. Lingering graininess and DMS on the finish. Not much of an IPA if you ask me. Where are the hops?!?!   Thanks for the new label Dan!

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2009 Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of me. Pours a clear orange with an average size white head. Wonderful aroma of fresh citrus hops -- oh yeah, that’s how Daddy likes it! The flavour of floral hops and citrus is fresh and delicious. I liked it a lot.
Rerate:Cask at Mr. Goodbar, Buffalo, NY. Not much to add except that I’d originally given it 3.6 and it’s much better then that fresh on cask. Delicious and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Medium copper. Fragrant, flowery aroma with citrus, pineapple, grass, and fruit salad. Flavor is similar, but with somewhat sweet malts as well, giving honey and light caramel notes. Borders on the syrupy. Great hops, but a bit too sweet and the bitterness is very mild. Like it, though.
