2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
I wasn’t impressed with this beer at all. Little to no hops in the aroma, flavor, etc... Actually tasted like they had flip flopped and added more malt to this one. It was smooth for sure but that was the only discernable highlight. Nothing in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pours a hazy, golden amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is bitter and slightly malty. The taste is bitter yet has a decent amount of malts and floral tones. A decent brew the delivers with bitterness but still is not what you expect from an IPA. Finishes with a very dry after taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique January 2014. Pretty decent IPA that is easy to drink and goes down well. No pretensions with this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured dark red-brown from a 12 oz bottle. Excellent, creamy tan head. Great retention.
Flavor: Orange peel, other citrus and some floral hop notes. Strong. High bitterness.
Feel: Full bodied with perfect , soft carbonation.
O: while partly tamed by a larger and darker malt load, this IPA has plenty of hop power to satisfy hop heads.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly everything you would want in an IPA. High alcohol content that you can taste, rich hoppiness, not too thick.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant - not exciting - more malt than herbal hops - slightly rough edge to this one - nice bitterness but falls away quickly. For me this is an amped up Brit Bitter - Sixpoint Bengali Tiger is a similar style but way
more outstanding IMHO.

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 it’s off-type; but, it gets this rating because it’s 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.
