3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy copper, thin off white head, respectably lacy. nose of malt and citric hops. flavor is malt offset by a mild citrusy hop presence. medium bodied, mildly bitter finish. a decent ipa, but a bit too mild for my palate. not that i wouldn’t drink another if given the opportunity.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle... dark orange with a thick tan head, very creamy at first but then fades really fast... the nose is all malt, oranges with sugar cookie, doughy, ok... the taste is not successful, the malt build and cookie quality are off mixed with old stale hops that are biting... pass on this one

12 oz bottle. pours amber gold with a small frothy white head. Aroma is a bit of sweet caramel and of course some piney hops,a touch citric though and spicy. flavor starts with that sweet sugary note, picking up some hop citric and herbal note. Finishes with an aggressive bitterness. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Eh okay, standard meh ipa

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
When I smelled this beer, I thought, "Wow, this really smells like grapefruit." Then, when I tasted it, I thought, "WOW! This REALLY tastes like grapefruit." The thing is, I hate grapefruit, but really enjoyed this beer. There’s a sweetness in that really evens it out - kind of like putting sugar on a grapefruit. Mad Anthony’s take on the IPA is quite different than most. It doesn’t have that overbearing aftertaste that some IPAs can have. Like most Mad Anthony’s, this one goes down smooth, smooth, smooth. Nothing exceptional to note about the color or pour, but this is an IPA and it tastes great. I’d like to sit out on the porch with this one during the summer because drinking it indoors on a bitter winter doesn’t do it justice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 8/19/10. 12oz bottle. Hazy with a lively body and a rusty amber hue. Moldy white head. Typical citrus aromatics. Medium bodied with a solid toasty malt backbone. Hoppy flavors of orange candy and grapefruit. Good balance and a good body. Very sessionable. I’d drink more!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle shared by garthicus. Light clear amber pour with a small frothy off-white head. "WTF?!!!" - smells bitter, a bit fusel, somewhat unpleasant - barely a 5. Tastes of Liptons tea, orange zest, alcohol and perhaps some floral bitterness - way better than the aroma!!! Light-bodied, and weakly carbonated, with a somewhat dry, lightly astringent bitter finish - something weird and sort of unpleasant about this - it’s too thin, too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: light orange, small white head. Aroma: hmmm weird, onion but not unpleasant, hops, pine, varnish, strawberry. Flavour: malty, lots of salt & hops, onion again. How weird, tangy lemon and a long bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
RBSG 2010 rate. 12 oz bottle courtesy of hotstuff (I think). Pours a copper color with a big white head. Aroma is complex citrus with grapefruit, lemons and oranges. The flavor was not quite as bold as the aroma; light grapefruit, mild pine and some caramel malts. Palate was light with good carbonation. Finishes long and bitersweet. Overall: Very session-able IPA.

I dig this beer. I’m usually all about some Two Hearted or Alpha King and this one is going to fit right in there as one of my usual IPA choices along side those two. Sweet and sticky aroma accompanies the golden color of this beer. Great bitter bite up front that follows through to a bitter yet sweet finish.
