Deep golden color, nice ivroy head. Malts and hops are the most noticiable in the aroma. Great pines and hops in the taste. Very sharop yet clean ending.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. Bottle and tap. Definitely the best effort in Legend’s standard line-up, this beer seems to have taken the IPA out of the former "Golden IPA" (now Golden Ale). The beer pours a light copper straw with a very oily, sturdy head. The hop aroma is quite nice, tending more towards the herbal than floral. Nice, if somewhat intense bitterness on finish with almost enough malt structure to back it up. My only complaint would be with the consistant musty note I detect in Legend’s malt used throughout many of their beer varieties.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. Bottle. Could it be that my beer is fresh (as it only is traveling around 75 miles to get here), and thus is kept cool like the bottle says throughout the trip? Very hoppy flavor, citrus aroma. Not too overpowering, quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Medium amber/copper in color with a decent head. Hoppy/citrusy aroma, not overly strong, but not weak either- very pleasant. Nice citrusy hop flavor, with not a ton of malt- which is fine by me. Very flavorful.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at London gathering, November 2005. Gift from The_Beer_God (thanks Mike). A second overlooked beer from the Beer_God bequest that was very lively and in questionable condition. Although there was no best before date on the bottle, it was at least a year old.Amber coloured, with lots of hops. But its very sharp and I’m not sure that was intended. As I’ll be in Virginia again next year, I’ll try to re-rate in its natural surroundings and in a fresher state.

Bottle. slightly sour, maybe it was past its best??? Gristy malt and resiny hops, Slightly sour bitterness, made me think it was either infected or it was old. An odd one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A murky amber coloured beer with a puddly white head. The aroma is sweet and floral, almost herbal in a way. The taste is over-sharp and over bitter. Not very good and possibly infected?
