(bottle - 22 oz) Golden pour with a thin white head. Earthy and mildly bitter aroma with some very light citrus. Incredibly bitter flavor at the start. Bitter and astringent without the citrus that I was hoping for. Lingering and cloying bitterness on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle shared pours medium orange to copper color with fast moving white head. Aroma is lots of malt up front with a decent citrus hop aroma. The flavor is more malty than what I would prefer but it’s not offensive. Decent hop flavor with mild to medium bitterness. Overall pretty good but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2014 Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: a thick, fluffy off-white head slowly falls with plenty of lacing remaining. Color is a hazy copper with some streaming carbonation.
Aroma: tangerine, pine, floral, citrus rind, a bit of caramel and yeasty rolls.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, oily and sticky with a drying finish and some lingering alcohol burn.
Flavor: echoes the aroma with the tangerine, pine and floral hops flavors melding with the sweet malt and just enough caramel to balance the tangy hops.
Overall: excellent and well done to the style.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep orange, low off-white head and a modest amount of carbonation present. Aroma has a lot of orange, low grassy and mild earthy hops nose, sugary malt sweetness with lots of pale malt and light caramel presence. Flavor has a lot of caramel malt presence up front with a sweet grassy and orange hops middle that fades till the end of the sip. Clean overall bitterness. Body is light, low fizzy feel. Overall a run of the mill, well done IPA but nothing out of this world.

Gold, lightly tan head. Nose is nutty malt, lemon, pine, light caramel, some alcohol, berry. Flavor is nice light malt - slightly bready, honey, lemon, beautiful caramel & zest. Gorgeous. Lingering bitterness really well balanced out by the malt.

A good IPA. By definition, too hoppy, but the ale has a good malt taste. Light in color with an average head and medium body, it is a pretty good ale.
