2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle received from thome50. Fairly clear amber, orange color with a large white head. Aroma has a hint of citrus and floral notes, with caramel also being present. Taste floral and slightly soapy. Caramel comes up mid palate and leads to a minutely bitter finish. Loads of lacing left on my glass. This really could have been much worse, and if it had a bit more hop presence could have been pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle. Rated on 16.10.2012.
Pours a copper orange colour without a head. Aroma of grains, metals and some fruitiness. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, grassy hops, metals and some alcohol. Harsh on the palate with a bitter grainy finish. Alcohol comes through in the finish as well. Not very good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with medium foamy head. Mild aroma of woodsy and piney hops. Watery to slightly fluffy feel from carbonation. Just a bit of btie on the tip of the tongue. More flavor from the roast than the hops. Woodsy, grassy, slightly resiny hop. Finishes pretty clean, the finishing bitterness remains more on the tip and top of the tongue instead of the back. A decent pale, but falls short of expectations for an IPA.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very subdued aroma. No citrus, no pine, no flowers. Good looking copper/amber color. High carbonation almost bordering on belgian like brett effervescence. However everyithing is unremarkable. Not a session beer that I would pick up again....

Pours a rich copper color. Aroma of fruit and pine. Taste of hoppy bitterness with a touch of fruityness. A dry finish and aftertaste. Overall a good IPA, with a crisp ending.

Bottle at friend’s place. He got this one for free--good thing. Not much going on here, nose is kinda of like unfermented wort--he said grape nuts and he was right. Flavor is bitter up front, a little grapefruit. Backend is kind of skunky. Meh.

Poured a translucent golden amber colour with a near-one-finger head of white bubbles that diminished quickly and left OK lacing. Moderate carbonation. Bitter hops on aroma. Taste of bitter hops hits first up and lasts to finish. Medium body. 7% ABV. Short strong bitter finish.

Large head. Hazy body. Aroma of roasted malt, heavy yeast, and dates and nutmeg. Full, creamy and lively texture, with a huge metallic finish. Light sweetness, moderately acidic, with a bitter aftertaste. Nutty and acidic.
