4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2010 22oz bottle -pours a foamy light tan head and deep amber color. Aroma is northwest hops-citrus/resiny/pine, syrup, medium malt. Taste is tingly on the tongue, northwest hops-citrus/resiny/pine, syrup, medium malt, pick up of alcohol at the end. Good effervescence, could be an American Strong Ale, but best I2PA I think I’ve had.
100430-just had this in the 12oz pkg, not as impressive as 2+ yrs ago, but still pretty tasty. Leaving the score alone, just adding this comment.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ambery copper color. Little head, but a tendency towards minor lacing. Smells like sour grapefruit mixed with pine. That’s really a good smell. There’s an underlying malty sweetness, but the hops cover that quickly. Smooth, with medium body. Just delightful on the tongue. The hops persist from palate to esophagus.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Mudville 9, NYC. Awesome, awesome, awesome. I’d probably classify this as an IPA. Pours orange-gold with a medium, pure white head. Very sweet, citrus fruity aroma with loads of caramel malts. The primary characteristic of this beer is a sweet, sugary maltiness, but the hops are undeniable. Some pine and resin, but light. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Alcohol gives the beer some nice depth but is not overbearing. Loved this beer.

The flavor is fruity and sweet. Pineapple, grapefruit, and oranges. Light pine bitterness, sweet caramel, and some brown sugar. Nice.
