3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pale amber colored body was very clear, and the pour formed a nicely proportioned, two-finger thick, foamy head. The smell was grapefruit and mandarin oranges, and was very pleasing, but a bit mild. The taste once again showcased the citric hops, with lemony, grapefruity bitterness that was very much to my liking. There was a touch of sweetness and some light herbs in the finish. The body was a little on the light side. I enjoyed this beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle. Pours golden yellow amber hazy with thick cream white head, lacing. Aroma is nutty, herbs, orange fruits, hops. Palate is full bodied with medium mouth feel and smooth carbonation. Aftertaste is medium malty, fruity with good amount of hoppiness. Finish is vaguely mild until the clear bitter hops kick in... Overall quite bitter but refreshing however, the middle taste is lacking, tends to go from initial fruity aroma and nuttiness into watery malty end before finishing in overloaded hoppy bitterness. Still quite enjoyable, but rather simple or unbalanced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium sized off white head with fair retention and a nice lacing. Hazy, light copper, gold hued brew. Soft nose of citrus, little floral. Body is med/light with a gentle carbonation, lightly acidic. slight hop flavors, citrus, leaf and grass along with a tame but balanced maltyness, lightly sweet, little grainy. Fairly dry, uneventful finish. An easy drinkin IPA that would bode well for the young,uns. Props to neohippie for the bottle!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle: pours a orangeish yellow color with a nice white head. Aroma is nice and citrusy with some floral notes going on. Flavor is nice and bitter, with a heavy mouthfeel and solid malty backbone that balances it out. Not the most "interesting" ipa, but very drinkable, and enjoyable for sure.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-tan. Foamy, steady off-white head. Really has little finesse, but a decent hop backbone gets it through the struggle. Mostly deep resinous pine, maybe some niceness from the Simcoe. Somehow stumbling up with my friendly rating scale I guess, this one is just tolerable enough. Hardly impressive brewing, and not one Iíd seek out again, and wish I hadnít bought a whole sixpack, but OK enough.

Albany, Ga - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, light off white head. Light spruce aroma, hints of caramel.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Draft sample at 2013 Cincinnati Brew Ha Ha festival. Medium amber color, hoppy/fruity nose, taste like the aroma--flavor not as well balanced as it could be but certainly satisfactory. Itís good to see Alltech expanding its lineup of brews. Tasted on August 24, 2013.

Hazy amber beer with a tidy off white head. Minerally crisp palate. This malt base. Reasonable hops - orange peel and marmalade and fresh orange. Touch of lagerish paper. Finishes crisp. Much better than expected.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Darker yellow with slight off white head. Some decent lacing on the glass. grainy nose. Iím a hop head but this is overbearing. The hops kill out the malt presence rather than complement it. 6.5 alcohol is not detected, but with the massive amount of hops the ethanol could be stronger with little noticability. I canít believe I of all people am saying this, but itís too bitter.
