3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2007 Pours golden amber, medium off-white head, with decent lacing. Sharp Hoppy aroma, packed with an intensely sharp & bitter (almost acidic) taste. Kind of a watery palate. Great beer, but not balanced enough (too bitter) to be excellent.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Taste: Bitter, oakey taste with some sweetness. Watery pallet. Tastes like Killian’s Irish Red. The first taste is good, but the aftertaste is bad. I don’t like it.
Appearance: No head, no head retention, golden amber color.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. TIny white head on top of a hazy golden orange beer with a little bit of "stuff" floating in it. Floral hoppy nose, similar taste. Nice bit of spice, complicated hops flavors blend nicely. Not a lot of malt, but not overly bitter. Quite drinkable, rather interesting, and one I’d love to find again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear orange-copper with a medium-sized and lasting head. Spicy tea leaf and floral-honey aroma. Initial flavor is earthy-spiced honey and pekoe tea, turns more to a toasted bitter nut and dried wood. Finally finishes with a pleasant woody, earthy, dry cocoa aftertaste. Palate is smooth and nearly medium-bodied with a dry finish. Not your typical West Coast IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear amber color. The off white colored head leaves a nice lacing. Smells of mild floral hops. Medium bodied with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Has a sweet cream and caramel flavor with a mildly tart hop taste to finish.
Lots of malt flavors. The hops are around but they’re not the highlight here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light amber color with a thick head. Aroma is of sweet piney hops. Flavor is hoppy, though not as hoppy as some of their other offerings. Hop lovers can’t pass this one over as it hits all the notes of a solid IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a diminishing white head. Aroma is hoppy and with a slight malty dryness. Flavour holds dry fruity hops, lacks some sweetness to give some great flavours. Ends with a slight soapy and dry hoppy with a bit of bitterness.
