3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL bottle. Quite dark for an IPA. Smells British, not American. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Flavour is muddled and a little watery. Malt in there, touch or fruit, some earthy hops. Bitterness in the finish. A little disappointing, after seeing the rating.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Bright orange with a decently bodied head. The acidic, citrus-blossom aroma wafts quite a distance. At first blush, this is aiming for that big west coast pop. But I instead get bit of green leafy vegetable instead of grapefruit. And the finish is rife with sour mash. (#4912, 1/15/2013)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose of coffee, tobacco, caramel, earth, a bit of cabbage. Rich amber with a low head. Bitter, minerally, and tart, with some vegetables. Astringent, weird, and not so nice. Something strange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gift from Neko-chan. Big malty nose, some peach, some hop. Copper. Sweet malt initial; light hops and mineral notes make for a slightly hard mid; final has mild bitterness that fades pretty quickly. Thin (a bit watery). Some unusual flavors. An okay IPA. But not really as good as most.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 Nose faint mainly burnt toffee and a hint of citrus. Good looking beer with lovely lacing. Reminds me of an esb with a moderate pnw hop influence. Burnt toffee, caramel and some toasted sesame.
