3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-22oz.: Pours a clear copper head that produces more of a film rather than lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma is faint with orange peel and malt. Flavor is more sweet than bright and is a bit muddled. Nothing crisp.Nothing really stands out. Too much caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Sticky, average carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden color and has a foamy head. Has a strong, but not over powering, aroma of hops, citrus and spice. Taste is much of the same as the aroma. I have always been more of a dark beer drinker and did not really like IPAís until recently. This beer has a good taste that is not over powering, but enjoyable.

Bloody great American IPA. Great complex aroma, firm hoppy bitterness and surprisingly sessional. Goes well with spicy asian food.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a deep cherry amber with no head whatsoever. Aroma is sticky sweet fruitiness which continues throughout this indulgent caramel hop flavor. This IPA seems conflicted to me, like it canít make up tiís mind between being a sweet and hoppy IPA or a full fledged dessert beer. Itís a jack of all trades, but a master of none. R.I.P. Stargazer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 20 oz bottle. Pale gold color and crystal clear. A medium, white head rises quickly and then dissipates. Nice lacing. Mild pine and citrus notes. Light bitter, not an aggressive IPA. Soft carbonation and medium body. Enjoyable and easy to drink, but not memorable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange to golden color with a minimal head. Aroma is malt, caramel, oranges. Taste is rather dry and crisp, thin malt body. Bitterness is above medium, rather broad and long lasting. Perfect carbonation. Good IPA, but the malt body is lacking a bit.

On tap at LAX not the greatest I have had, but good enough certainly not something I would seek out at home at the bevmart but the best beer in the airport for sure. Again, not a stand out but a def not a dud. Decent for sure.

6 pack from dan murphys, poured into tulip glass, aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit, clear amber colour, taste is the same as aromas with a sharp bitterness, has good length, a very good session ale and well priced

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is the ideal IPA. Floral, hoppy and refreshing. Great golden body with a almost too long of a lasting head. Great summer bbq beer.
