3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(From a trade with Dark Elf-thanks) A high quality ipa. The aroma starts with a powerful hint of brandy that faded in only a few seconds. Ordinary appearance; short lived head, gold in color. Different flavors all related to hops. There is dry grass and some citrus, with a dry finish.

Bottled: Dark golden/amber coloured. Clear. Dark beige dense head. Lasting. Flowers, fruit, herbs and sweetness in the aroma. Flavour is malty and sweet with a herbal hoppyness. Is quite grassy. Well balanced and medium bodied. Is medium bitter in the end. Quite good one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours out clear amber, with a fluffy, two finger tan head that lasts and lasts. When it finaly does start to recede, it leaves rings of sticky lace.
Aroma is sweet malt up front, with some grapefruit and orange oil as it warms.
Flavor is lightly malty, around some citrusy hops.
Finish is mildly bitter.
Nicely balanced, will definately buy again.

Hop aftertaste that tastes good at room temp, that’s what makes a good product. I highly recommend this brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus grapefruity hops and fuity sweet malt underneath. Malt at front and back, before the moderate sized bitter finish, with grapefruit rind running down the center. Medium bodied. Didn’t expect this to be so good when I picked it up.

Pours light brown with a nice white head. Aroma is fruity hops. Taste is full of hops with a great malty back to it. Full mouthfeel. Somewhat piney. A great IPA.

This one is unique. It’s not like it’s west coast brothers...this IPA has a different malt profile and hop character than your typical west coast style IPA. Maybe this has more English IPA style to it...I need to try more of those. The aroma is malty with a bit of alcohol coming through. Taste is much the same...toasty malt and good hop flavor. These hops are all flavor and no bittering or aroma...to bad so sad. Still, this in an IPA that’s on my regular "BUY" rotation.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper color with a light head. Bit fizzy on the mouth. Nose has some prunes and lots and lots of hops. Mouth also very hoppy, bit bitter. Not very balanced, but as I’m a hop head, still quite good.

I do like this beer. I cannot say what makes it more appealing the more i drink it. Maybe they’re getting better all the time. Nice Hops... maybe just the right amount on some days. Wouldn’t do on a heavy flow day though. Viva le hop!
