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.

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.

courtesy of abends.
pours golden with thick gouging white head. To the point where it was over carbonated and could not even drop beer without everything foaming up.
Aroma of grassy/herbal hops, fresh flavor of hops, some fruit notes apple/citrus.
Taste, hoppy, citrusy, light yeast, herbal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle, pours a translucent orange-yellow with a very thin white bubbly head. Aroma is light and of citrus and floral hops. Taste is the same, pretty light, while floral flavor hops dominate the palate. Thin and watery, this has some flavor, and I could drink a few of these, but there are other IPAs I would choose above this one.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in trade from HogWildLiquor, I believe... Pours a kind of dirty orange color with a liasting beige head. Smell is fruity and citrusy with earthy and orange smells. Nice maltiness to the flavor with a tea like character as well as a bit of an astringent earthy hop flavor. A bit dirty tasting, actually. Medium bodied and with normal carbonation. Smells better than it tastes.
