3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This pours with a slightly hazy rich amber hue. Grapefruit and peanuts make up the smell. There is also some hay. This tastes of peanuts and oranges at the front. The finish has a little bit of grass and tobacco. There is an ever present spice in each sip, like a hint of black pepper. This is a nice and well balanced IPA. It is not bracing bitter west coast as I expected, but rather a little sweet overall with malt. A tasty brew.

Solid IPA. The label looks kind of stupid and cheap. The beer is also too expensive. $12.99 or so for a 6 pack. Better choices out there for less. Still this is a dry IPA with good bitterness. Clean and crisp. A bit lacking in complexity but there is nothing wrong with the flavor either. Good beer but not great.

355ml Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange. Rich hoppy aroma, smooth and balanced from start to finish. I poured this after a short (3 hr) road trip and the timing was perfect. Very drinkable.

review from mid late early summer fall winter of 2011. stupid notes on iphone. lovely review i got here: hazy orangy amber brew wit ha nice compact off white cap that left average lacing, aroma says: pine, rrgf, caramel, light roast? and spice (pepper maybe). Tasted flavours on the mouth organ: toasted malts with lesser caramel, pine knives, nectarines I think, sweetness that has no discerning fruit that stands out. Good bubbles, hella bite, long bitter ending. Fresh would have been nice. I added in the punctuation to make this review as exciting for you as it was for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle pours a golden orangey color with a finger of white head which leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Pleasing aroma of pine and citrusy hops and a trace of toasted malts. Taste is dominated by the bitterness of the hops and has some balance with a malty sweet backbone. Medium body and medium carbonation provide a nice tingle on the tongue. This is a hoppy but still pleasing and very drinkable IPA.

Thank you Adrian for the brew!!!! Peachy pine big hop aroma, caramel, orange, more stuff. Nice and malty good balance with the hop. I donít know why but Iím finding the carbonation perfect here, what an odd thing to like. I love the malts they be roasted to perfection, sweet, smooth but then the hops kick in and they be bitter, perfect balance. Pine, orange, wood, Iím picking up this weird chocolate. Wow i can drink this all night. The lingering bitter is killing me!!! WOW!!! What a good IPA! This has regular in the fridge written all over it.

Forgotten rating from June 2011.
The pour is a bright copper-orange with a finger of beige head and good lacing. The nose is hop forward with prominent notes of grapfruit and light herbal pine. The malts are of sweet caramel and light bread. In the middle there is a good maltiness with a sweet grapefruit tang. The finish has a big hop that drys the palate out for a while. A great hop bomb session brew.
