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.

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.
