A bit more fruit mixed with the floral hoppiness than I find in most IPAs, but still a decent finish. The honey-like sweetness seems like a bit of a distraction.

Poured dark, cloudy honey with a small head. Left a nice lace. Mild aroma of hops and florals. Flavors are nice slight sweetness, and good hoppy bitterness. Average body, light bubble, long bitter on the palate. not a bad IPA.

Small white head. Cloudy. Bitter and grassy taste. A slight creamy mouth feel. Medium bodied. Average carbonation. A bitter and sour finish. I’m not digging the after taste on this one.

12 oz bottle. A good tasting IPA, not real heavy on the hops, but drinkable for non IPA drinkers. Pours a cloudy yellow, I like the unfiltered brews, decent aroma of hops, well balanced. Not a lot of complexity, but good CO2. A lightly hopped brew, bitter finish. Overall, a good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. marked 121310-1063. It pours an unfiltered cloudy orange-amber with a nice half-inch fizzy head. The aroma tends to be sweeter than most IPA’s that I have tried with the hops more in there as a subtle afterthought. Those that are there are piney and earthy. Thin to medium body. The taste starts out sweet but the bitterness kicks in on each subsequent sip. A milder IPA than many.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy orange amber with a thin bright wide head. The aroma is interesting -- musty yet fruity too. The beer drinks with a sweet citric base, coupled with a different gristy feel unusual for such a sweet beer. Good. (#4167, 7/16/2011)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber gold with a foamy/creamy 2 finger off-white head. Aroma is floral with some mild citrus and a little caramel. Mouthfeel is rather lush. Flavor is very floral/citrus and almost hides the caramel. Quite hoppy, though not burningly bitter, and with time there’s some graprefruit rind detectible. Good stuff.
