3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured orange/amber into a tulip. Nice 1/2 inch of foam. Dissipates to a film with a thick ring. Minimal lacing.
Smell is orangey hops.
Taste is citrus at the front, some malt and a mildly bitter finish.
Palate fairly light with good carbonation.
Overall a good beer. Nice hop aroma but the taste is lacking. Maybe my bottle is past it’s prime?

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
sorry... i like a variety of microbrews & i thought i’d like this one since the description sounded ok (& i’ve liked other types by this brewery), but i could not stand it & in fact it’s sitting in the kitchen almost totally full. i wonder why it is that i HATE this so much that i can’t even finish 1/5 of the bottle?
i need to find others who disliked it as much as i did since i might find beers they like more palatable. (sorry for the non-technical review!)

Hazy yellow. Small white head. Amazing aroma of honey and hops and grass. Taste of the same. Brown sugar too. Smooth and complex. Great beer.

Mildly hazy orange with moderate carbonation, good lacing and a thin foamy head. Aroma of toffee, caramel malts, brown sugar, citrus hops and and a slight rye scent. Very malt forward with notes of caramel malts, mango, citrus hops, brown sugar, and a slight rye spiciness. Light body and moderate carbonation. Very good!

Poured from a 32 ounce bottle into a snifter. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Clear deep gold color. Grapefruit flavor balances bitterness well. A wonderful west coast ipa.

Had a pint on tap at Ashley’s. Quite hoppy, a slight sweet edge on the finish. Solid, not my style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a huge bubbly white head that leaves a lot of lacing behind. Aroma is big, sweet and hoppy, of brown sugar, malt, pine hope, and a hint of candied citrus. Rich taste, of candied citrus, malt, sugar, toffee, then picks up a big hoppy bite. Lingering sweet hops. Very tasty.

On tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury Vermont. Golden like an IPA. Aroma is hops - smells like an IPA. Taste is the same (like an IPA). Mild hop bite on finish. Overall, just a solid, balanced India Pale.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear gold, with some lacing and fun carbonation. Tastes of hops, grapefruit, and just a little funk. Not really for me, but I get why others like it.
