3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Pours a cloudy copper, minimal head. Aroma is ripe citrus. Smooth and soft on the palate. Definite hop finish. Chewy and bready, a lot of body. Has some odd notes for an IPA, but overall, I like it the variations and the body. (updated rating when I could see it in context of my other IPA ratings - strictly speaking, as an IPA it should rate lower, because itís off-type; but, it gets this rating because itís pretty drinkable).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another old IPA at the Millvale beer Fest. Lovely. Just a malt bomb. Need to try again because the backbone isn't bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL bottle. Pours slightly cloudy light amber with a sweet tropical fruit aroma. Big bitter kick with a nice floursome zesty citrus, grapefruit specifically, hit. Not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber with an inch of white head that never quite disappears. Aroma of over-ripe grapefruit, Butter Menthols, peach. Sweet and fruity - peaches, grapefruit, orange - dries out a lot and is quite woody and herbal at the quite aggressive bitter finish. A bit burning there too. Odd, worth another look.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-tan color with a smallish white head. Nose is hoppy and bitter, but smells like the hops have turned. Taste is bitter, but tastes old. Sat on the shelf too long. Meh.
