3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[910-20071205] Tap @ Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Mainly raspy orange peel hops aroma has some lemon. Hazy, orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Super grapefruit citrus grass hops flavour has something like a little bit of Johnson & Johnson’s baby shampoo. Medium body is very bitter. Fair hoppy beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light hazy pour, deep amber/orange. Light beige head, slow recession, solid pretty sheet lacing. The aroma unleashes, with an air of immediacy, a moderately intense toasted grain base. Hops are medium, not as pungent as hoped for. I ordered this for a big dose of hops, after all. Earthiness, soil, floral notes and soft grapefruit are noted. Alcohol is too prevalent. Mild stale toast and bready malts finish off each inhalation. Astringency is medium-high and overwhelming in the flavor. Malt tastes stale and uninviting. Hoppiness is at a dissapointingly low level. Depth of flavor is very low and incredibly uninspired. Finishes lightly bitter, bready and bland. The mouthfeel is sticky, oily and parching with low-medium carbonation. Unimpressive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Isaac Newtons - no notes taken, but I remember fairly well. Orange color (cloudy) with a very sweet piney-grapefruit aroma. Flavor was a bit too sweet and unbalanced. Not bad, but could have been much better for the style.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This IPA had some serious bite to it. Bitterness is almost overwhelming when drinking. Had a heavy hop aroma with a golden color that tasted strong, but not to heavy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pint at KClingers. Reddish amber with a firm pillowy head. Oily hop aroma. Full bodied drinker with lots to it -- thick and woodsy, with a heavy spicy twist and a big earthy finish. Tangy and metallic at the end. Good IPA with some gusto. (#3216, 11/24/2007)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Deep amber, somewhat fiery, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet malty nose,
kind of candyish, hop presense is there but takes a back seat to the malts.   Big malt flavors up front, somewhat sweet, hop presense
that isn’t over bearing.   Good, up to par with respect to malts, but could stand to be a bit more hoppy.   Mod body and mouthfeel.
Reminds me of an agedand toned down Doggie Claws because of the malts.
