2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a bold brown colored body that leaves a one finger white head that lasts a good two minutes. No carbonation is rising.
The smell had a malty sweet citrus up front with just a bit of hops in the background.
The taste was pretty much the same, nothing different.
The palate sat about a medium, pretty creamy, nothing harsh on the tongue.
Overall, this is decent, but nothing spectacular, I’m not sure if I would have this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. glass on draft Buffalo Wild Wings, Burlington, VT. Yellow orange color, Spotty lace sticking to sides of glass. Aroma is mild citrus and weak earthy hops.
Flavor is expected. The initial taste is a bit citrus upfront and the backend is Floral Earthy hops. Bitterness is restrained and not overly bitter like most of the hop bombs on the market. Medium body with plenty of malt in the base of this beer.
Overall, No complaints and no problems. This has a very classic standard example of the style. Real drinkable and I like the simple approach after drinking so many hop bombs.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
hazy orange/caramel color, big head that is pure white and leaves excellent lacing. smells of caramel, nuts, pumpkin spice and malts. Smells very exciting. nice medium body, unfortunately aroma is much fuller than the flavor. Flavors of caramel, toffee, sweet and a little malty. Overall a very good beer but not fantastic. definitely worth the price. try it if you see it but don’t go out hunting for it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Someone recommended this to me; I’m a little frustrated with them now.
Very one note IPA with none of the fruity citrus in the hop flavor, just a sort of flat one note bitterness with an almost wheatbeer like lightness.
Not very tasty, but better than a lot of the crap Magic Hat shills out

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a dark golden/ amber color with a small white head. The aroma is too sweet with floral & pine notes to it. The taste is way too sweet for my taste with a pine & not much malt balance to it. Overall i was not a fan of this beer. I have had worst but this one is not good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not the best IPA out there but not the worst in my opinion. You got the nice smell of pine the beautiful golden look and most important that sweet hop taste.

A slightly better than average IPA. Very well balanced. Lots of sweet caramel and a little bit of butter cancel out the piney hops.
