3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just how I like my Ipa - grapefruit hops in the nosr and on the tongue, sweet, but not cloying, amply strong without feeling weighty. Lacks a bit in the head department, though that may be a function of the sampler glass and the time I’ve taken to drink the others. Still, I like big, long lasting head. I also like this beer.

Really dark for an IPA. Don't think it is the correct color for this style. Aroma of a musty basement. Certainly not my favorite IPA, but I would not turn it down if offered.

Poured from a bottle. Amber with thick and sticky tan foam. Smells a little earthy. Taste is slightly fruity, somewhat hoppy and malty. Not my favorite IPA but don’t mind it.

Bottle. Good-size head, lots of lacing. Peach seemed to dominate on the palate. Drinkable? Yes, I could take a session of this. But I didn’t find it a great IPA.

Bottle in hotel room, Ithaca. Dark red orange appearance with a small, tan head. Toasty, a touch bitterly nutty, earthy hoppy aroma. Caramelized malty, tangy, earthy hoppy flavor with a bitter finish.

Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 02/23/2012. Pours a deep amber-orange color with a medium creamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.
