2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Golden color with a thicker head at first but then wears down to a thin white head. Some lacing retention on the glass. Light malty and floral aroma.
Average carbonation. Some bitterness to it but not overpowering. Not as bitter as most American IPAs but more bitter than most British IPAs. Was expecting more malty notes to come through.

Okay, can you please shorten your official beer description? Ive been drinking quite a bit already tonight, so I dont need such a long introduction.... But its true, this does not come across as a "normal" IPA in many ways, especially the smell & look of it (smells of yeast/beer-in-progress, looks like a lager or other golden brew). Tastes pretty interesting but why are IBUs info not displayed?? "Happy Sleuthing"?? Hey guys, Im not trying to solve a mystery, I just want to have a drink....

Not terrible, but almost bland compared with most IPA I have had. Hardly a scent to speak of. The only pronounced flavor is one I’m not accustomed to, but isn’t bad; just not reminiscent of a standard IPA.

A little different. Aroma and Flavors were hoppy with an earthy malt. Not overly strong but received with mixed feelings. OK I guess.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cocoa, orange, roasted malt. Low carbonation, orange flower and dark chocolate, floral hops, lemon zest, nutty cake, dry finish. Quite an interesting take on an ipa, does have both the british dark cocoa and american orange fruity edges.

On tap at OBriens in San Diego. Deep gold color, low carbonation. Aroma is dried grass, honey, malt. Flavor leans to a grainy cereal character with sweet caramel and hop bitterness understated. Finishes quickly with low alcohol tones. It's OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a solid off-white 1/2" head, cobweb of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds mild, but distinct, hops on the swallow. Light carbonation is also present. Pretty simple, just barely enough hops to be an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy with some bread malt scents. Taste is mildly sweet and not overly bitter, it’s quite balanced. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall a good IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer is a clear golden orange with an inch or so of white head that shrinks to nothing and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is fairly malt forward. Caramel, biscuit, and floral hops are most present, although the aroma is fairy faint all the way around. On to taste. Sour citrus, bready malts, and a little caramel and toffee flavors. There’s really not much else there. The flavors are sort of muddled and underwhelming. As far as palate, the beer goes down pretty easy and is feels fairly light. Overall not the best representation of the style, it’s more like English IPA light.

On tap at Bishops Maria. Golden with white head. Aroma malty, ashy, grapefruit and light cat piss. Taste is similar, bready malt and ash tray dominates
