Iíve come full circle with this one. Didnít like it before but now this seems to be a very refreshing well balanced I.P.A, sort of a lite version of dogfishhead 60. This is sold for only $6.99 at my local grocery store.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bdigi66 for sending this my way. POurs a slightly hazed amber with a thick and creamy white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Flavor in piney hops, citrus, floral hops, bread, and caramel malts. Decently carbonated but a bit too creamy than I prefer for an IPA. Slightly bitter, not as hoppy as the nose suggests. Interesting beer, thanks bdigi!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Mostly clear, bronze/orange pour with a medium-sized white head. Very good lacing to complement. Nose hints at massive amounts of piney and citrus hops as well as a subtle grass and light malt aroma. Medium bodied mouth feel leads to, again a huge amount of resin and citrus hop body. This is very well-made and I commend Mad Anthony on a job well-done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Shows a hazed deep amber hue with sunset highlights topped by a big white fluffy head and excellent lace. The aroma has notes of floral, herbal and citric hops over a bed of biscuity and grainy malts. Some toffee and nutty notes also found on the nose.
The taste is balance bitters and moderate malts with a very subdued spicy and metallic finish. Not a lot of depth but very drinkable and refreshing with a sprite and lightly biting mouth feel. I am surprised by this beer and came into it not expect much but a watery bland IPA, instead I found a solid quaffable beer. Not for hopheads however, entry level stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
6/07/2007: Mad Anthony IPA a hazy orange in color with a whispy crown. The aroma is sugary citrus hops. Light toffee malt is underneath a mild to moderate grapefruit bitterness in the flavor. This beer has a medium-light body and is clean and smooth on the palate. I was expecting an IPA, but this beer more like a Pale Ale. Itís still pretty good either way although a little more bitterness would have been welcomed.
