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.

Deffo a bit diffo from the 'regular' IPA's. Not AS hoppy on the nose and nicely balanced given the 7% ABV. I think I'm going to decide to like this one. Yeah Mon...

A surprisingly sweet aroma proves that this is indeed a little different from your average west coast IPA. The hop-led assault on tasting is great because of the sheer number of hops used. A really nice IPA.

Reddish amber in tulip glass (in the dimly-lit Botella Republic in Berkeley). Probably not as red as it looks under the filament bulbs. Floral sweetness on the nose. Taste has a malty backbone, reminds me of a red ale or an amber. It’s okay, but not great.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very strong hop-aroma, dark brown color, thin composition with a bitter hop finish. More on the bitter side of IPAs and it gets more bitter with each sip. very bitter, thin feel, soft carbonation, clear,

Good looking easily drinkable beer but just not enough aroma or flavour from the hops for me.

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.

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.
