Brown coloured beer with a brown head and almost no carbonation. Roasty malty aroma with some light fruity hints. Medium to full creamy palate. Finish is sweet bitter hoppy with a sharper ending. Nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour with a thick, sticky white head. The nose is fairly tropical with a distinct mix of caramelly malt and some light orange peel as well. Pretty fresh and hoppy with a distinct kiss of iced tea. There is a little bit of sweetness and some light hoppy bitterness. Nice dry-hopped character on the back… by the numbers but still pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 Sample at the Universal City location. This brew is a clear orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of hops, tart citrus and malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Decent IPA overall.

Clear golden with a medium off white head. Hoppy nose with grapefruit, pine and pale malt. Flavour had grapefruits, plenty of hops, pine and pale malts and it came out bone dry and bitter. Solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 7/12/2010. This India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is biscuty malts and grapefruity hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Nice balance. A malty IPA, yet there is a nice citrusy hop bite. Good carbonation. Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, dry and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
