3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, orangeish-yellow with minimal head. Very strong hop aroma. Flavor is a nice, smooth combination of piney-hop bitterness with citrus notes and a sweet finish. This is really a very good IPA--surprised I havenít heard of it before.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of Radek. Deep amber beer with a thin head. The aroma has a little bit of soft fruit and an odd peanutty flavour. Fairly odd really. A bit of citrus and some light pithy bitterness. A little bit of light malt sweetness a touch of crystal malt/iced tea. Meh - itís okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dripping with resinous hops, this IPA packs a surprisingly bitter punch, wringing every last west coast IBU from the recipe. The malts give a grainy, meek background, one barely noticeable in the face of such massive piney massiveness. Good nose, even with a hint of metallic ick. The texture isnít that great-- the beer seems overcarbonated and spiky, too harsh when coupled with a sandpaper-dry finish. Good but one is plenty.
