3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the brewery and from a growler a day later......Color is a nice, slightly hazy gold-orange with a small-med white head. Aroma is dominated by grapefruit hops with some light floral and malt smells. Flavor is a smooth and tingly with a nice grapefruit hop flavor and a subtle malt finish. Not over the top, but a good summer IPA.

Anniversary Trip 2007
5/17/2007: Cloudy golden color with no head or crown. Clover and citrus in the semi-sweet aroma. Dry-hopped. Flavor has lots of grapefruit. Moderate bitterness that has some floral notes to it. Tofee and toasted malt underneath. Some oil hopiness as well. Dry finish. Medium-light to medium body. Fine, mild carbonation. Very good! Now we are getting somewhere...
Draught sample (6.5% ABV) at The Livery in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a touch of dry hop haze. Topped with a sticky snow white head. Aromas of Fruit Stripe gum with loads of tangerine and tropical type fruit. The flavor left a lot to be desired in my opinion. The flavor was very light and even a bit soapy. Very light palate. Started big for not real finish here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: 4-28-06. Golden with white rocky head that lasts the whole beer, great lacing. Aroma is all c-hop citrus, not much for malt as far as aroma. Flavor is much the same big citrus kick up front with some pine through the middle. Malt shows up a little more, just seems a tad unbalanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Hazy copper orange with no head. Nose is lots of grapefruity. The taste is sweet and reminds me of a tart candy that the name has lost me for now. Really this is pretty good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewery:
Hazy orangy hue with a tight head and very good lacing. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, apple and light piney esters as well as some caramel and pale malting. The taste is a fresh biting hop quality of Cascade with a citric overtone. It is still nicely balanced and produced a very dry finish, quite tasty IPA. The body is medium and it has a crisp feel, the aftertaste is metallic and astrengent. A nice beer and not over-the-top, I dig it.
