In the bottle. Pours a murky brownish gold with a thick white off-white head. Lots of suspended yeast chunks in the beer. The hop aroma is reminiscent of a strong tea. The flavor has a nice medium hop body and really good caramel notes. Pretty good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that had some decent retention due to the vigorous carbonation. The aroma is a mix between floral and slightly resiny hops with some toasty malt. With a big swirl I start to pick up a touch of cooked veggies. Rather light hoppiness up front, and there’s not a whole lot of bitterness either. This really doesn’t even hit the mark for IPA to me. The malt is light as well, leading to not much of a body. Light and fizzy with a little too much fizzy spritzy carbonation. Easily finished, but I wouldn’t make this a regular if it were available here.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma consists of pine notes, as well as some citrus notes as well, primarily pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is somewhat acidic, with the citrus and floral notes slightly balanced by a bit of caramel. Overall a decent IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Seems there were a couple infected bottles out there. Mine may be tad skunky, but cracked fine. Hazy gold. Nice drippy white head. Some suspended sediment. Dank, herbal, spicy, juicy hop smell. Mouth is better than good. Smooth. Notch up from thin. Very nice hop character. Great piny bite. Mid mouth sweetness and green plant. I’ll call this better than average, less than stellar. Would be happy to try again, though.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a blonde color with a nice head and good head retention. The aroma is melony hops and cat pee, I love the hops and I hate the urine. The flavor is better with some nice biscuit malt and citrusy hops, overall pretty bitter and dry. I’d like to try it again; the whole cat pee thing really threw this one off for me though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and lots of hops as well as lighter notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrus, leading to a dry, strawy, and hoppy finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Buggy, cidery, almost sour ale-y nose. Some earthy hop notes, lemon and caramel are there as well. Golden orange pour with some chill haze, nice lace and a decent fizzy head. Odd, buggy, tart, with flavors of lemon and cider. Some earthy bitterness as well. Very carbonated. I wish I could have tried the version that averages 3.4 instead of the version that is an infected mess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Old Fashioned. Hazy orange-tan color. Thin head. Earthy hop aromas and flavor tones. Pleasant citrus hoppy character. Easy drinking, with lots of English IPA touches. Lemony sour biscuit malt. A very nice, sessionable IPA, somewhat creamy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 Beer number one of my IPA re-rate project. Particulate laden amber with an extra large meringue taupe head that fades slowly. Aroma is grainy with citrus, caramel and bready notes. Taste of floral and citrus hops, orange, mild grains and moderate bitterness.
One gusher of a bottle, this thing could stand next to old faithful at Yellowstone and fit right in. Explosion of head in every minuscule pour, it took a long time to fill up the glass. Golden orange-red with suspended thingamajiggies hanging out underneath the sixty-two finger off-white head that just sort of sat there looking like a beer float…. I’d kiss your lips but you won’t let me… Citrus, orange and floral hops mix it up with caramel malt to make a decent aroma. Caramel, citrus hops and milt fruit make up the tastes. Over carbonated for sure and bit abrasive, this one finishes up moderately bitter.
