3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
When poured into a pint glass, the body looked a shade paler than the typical IPA amber, but the clarity and one finger thick head still made it quite nice to behold. The smell was very floral and timid, making it seem more like an APA than IPA. The taste was pleasing, but lacked that bitter punch I like. Instead I got more of a balanced approach with a bit of soapy bitterness. The body was medium thick and a little sticky, and the beer was very easy to drink. Maybe a n nit too easy. Could stand to be buffed a bit more.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Dark yellowish-orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of grassy hops, dirt, and just a bit of skunkiness. The flavor is a little better but not by much. I can’t say that I taste anything skunky but I do taste what I could only describe as a dirt flavor. With all of the IPAs out there this is not one I would seek out. Not bad, but very disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is an orange with a large whtie head. Aroma is enough pine hops to carry it. Flavor is kinda weak and a big suprise. I was expecting this to be above par like all left hand beers but this was not to be. Some mild malts and a very weak hop presence. This is no two hearted for sure.

Has a fairly decent taste, hoppy, earthy, and piney. The aroma is also somewhat hoppy, but nothing too special.

click click bloody click.. Pours out a light copper, light foam.. . pretty light in the mouth to with a pretty aggressive bitterness .. goes down very smooth, can see what they were going for.. a big english style in bitterness, but fits the rest of style attributes. .. she said that we fed him dog food!!?!!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden pour from bottle. Pepper and spices on the nose. Fairly weak hop taste. Average stuff from the otherwise solid Left Hand Brewing Company.
