Starts with a nice piney aroma, with a hint of malt. Pours a clear amber, with a small white head. Nice bitter flavor, with caramel notes, as well as pine notes. Moderate bitter finish, and fairly light bodied. This is a solid, easy drinking IPA.

Pours auburn with a thin white head. Smells malt and caramel. Tastes nice...grapefruit and caramel with a little bit of hops. Smooth on the palate. Somewhat sweet and very drinkable. One of the best local brews I?ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Amber copper with a ton of head. Sentiment floated and settled at the bottom eventually. Smells and tastes very earthy. Not too hoppy. Nutty and malty IPA, pretty original. Didnt love it or hate it

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small off white head. The aroma is citrus hops, perfume, and caramel. The taste is malty at first, followed by some light hoppiness, medium bitterness, and a bit of a weird butterscotch/caramel flavor on the back end. Not a great IPA, but I’ve had worse.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a mostly clear, amber-gold colored body with some particulate floating around. Big, over-carbonated, very foamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing. Aroma is big herbal hops with a light citrusy pine resin, a moderate caramel backing with some crystal, and a good amount of orange floral fruits. Flavor is citrus up front with a nice caramel backing before lots of orange florals come in as well as a decent piney, slightly resiny hopping. Some spiciness from the herbal hops comes on towards the end as this finishes dry and balanced with a light sweetness and moderate, piney, somewhat resiny bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad IPA. Well hopped with a nice mixture of orange florals, piney citruses, and slightly spicy herbal hops balanced with a nice caramel. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Date: January 17, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Crown Liqour Description: Translucent but slightly cloudy orangish brown pour with minimal head that faded almost immediately. Aroma was citrus, pine and some caramel / malt. Taste was fairly similar to aroma with a mild bitter finish. First brew from Mad Anthony so that was cool, but this one was just okay.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy ambergrist color with a small persistent head and lace that slides back into the drink. Taste of caramel malt carries through only to be temporarily punctured by a clean pine hop bitterness. As quickly as it pushes through, the hop bitter retreats, leaving a nice malty finish. A surprisingly solid brew, one of the best IPAs I have had the pleasure of sampling.
