3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed amber IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, a lightly and muskey hops, almost veering on cheesey. In mouth, caramel malt with interesting hops, a bit wild, but this one also has the cloying berry esters as the ESB. Richer bodied, with alcohol warmth. On tap at brewpub, April 8, 2011.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewpub 4Q 10. Pours hazy dull gold with 1-finger white head. Nose is resiny hops, some fruit and malt. Tastes hoppy, malty, crisp, and the unfiltered nature adds to the flavor profile, yet this one seems a bit chaotic, but still not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewpub. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that fell to a thin film. Nice citrusy nose with some light toasty malt. Moderate bitterness level in the flavor, citrusy and floral with some lingering leafy hops. Minimal malt interference. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Nice length on the hoppy finish. Nothing too exciting, but it was a decent effort. No notable flaws.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at the brewpub, pours light amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is all hops. Jeff told be he uses Citra, Nugget and Cascade. You definitely get huge whiffs of hops. Flavor is near perfect to style. Well balanced toasted malt, some biscuit ending dry as hell. Great IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the brewpub. Amber body with light tan head. Aroma of citrus and flowery hops. Dominant flavors were citrus fruits and pine with a big hoppy finish that lingered very pleasantly on the palate. All in all, a very solid IPA. Good job, Jeff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was nice and citrusy, piney hops. The pour was amber colored with a little too much head. The flavor was solidly hoppy and well balanced without being overly bitter. Again, a solid offering here.
