3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2004 Cloudy dark amber/orange body with a big head. Bubbles stick to the glass very well, but they're pretty irregular. Cascade and citrus aroma, mainly grapefruit. The taste is pleasant, vague caramel with tart orange, lemon, grapefruit are riding all along with floral hops. Restrained bitterness and dry finish. Overall a light india pale ale, very easy to drink and tarter than average.

(5ooml bottle) Pours a thick, foamy, almond head and a slighty cloudy, orange copper body. Aroma hops and citrus. Tart hoppiness. Very good but somewhat unbalanced with the citrus.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Re-rate: This bottle had a green olive aroma to it before soapy notes appeared. I picked up green olives in the flavor also, mixed with raw cereals. Not that great. Original: Caramel and citrus aroma at first, then, bubblegum notes. As it warms up, the caramel comes back stronger. Mostly caramel flavor leading to nice hop bitterness. An honest beer.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 Tree bark and herbal hoppiness...Distinguished but living in an anemic body...Bitterness overwhelms whatever malt sweetness there is...An unsatisfying, boring India Pale Ale...
