2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Received in a variety pack from friend. Orange appearing. Piney aroma, only mild sweetness. Not too much aroma. Bitter taste, one again with only mild sweetness. Very bitter finish. After taste not very enjoyable. Lacks balance. Not that enjoyable but nice to try a one hooped beer for the experience.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Roasted nuts and sourdough aromas. Soft with astringent earthy bitterness front to back. Not very well balanced, and rather unpleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium copper color with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates leaving spotty lace on the sides. Smells of rancid popcorn with and earthy sulfury thing going on. Toffee and caramel maltiness. The flavor is bitter sweet and malty with caramel and burnt buttered popcorn making up most of the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. I have a sensitivity to diacetyl and can spot it when others donít, this beer is has enough that it makes it unpleasant for me to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cap pops with huge carbonation and beer pours golden unclear orange with quite a big foamy white head. The aroma is light citrus hops and biscuit. Flavor starts out with some juicy sweet hops, but unfortunately settles with some mild spicy malts.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, branded as "Atlantic New Guy IPA." Pours hazy orange with a white head. Weird old herbal hops, and medium malty sweetness. Not good at all.

Had under the Atlantic name. Maybe the reason they needed to re-brand it was because it was pretty bad. Not an IPA at all. If its strength is its simplicity it is very strong.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pour was almost all head, enough to fill four glasses with thick off-white head. Unfiltered, yellowish colour, fair bit of sediment in the glass. Some floaties actually suspended in the head. Floral and grapefruit aroma, sweet malt. Taste is much the same with some earthiness, uncomplex. Overall, drinkable, but a one note song.

Pours a hazy amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel and tea...buttery! Flavor is buttery and earthy...piney and medicinal...awful. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is buttery pine/medicine and very earthy/bitter and dry.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
very nice citrus hop aroma sweet right from the bottle and settles down with much alcohol like turpentine in short order. some sweetness in grapefruit with much pith like grapefruit candy. sharp carbonation a bit peppery and stinging. some wood like ivy and a bit funky. the beer has an odd pear nectar type look in full glass tempering down to pale ale as beer lowers down the glass.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle with New Guy label. Pours a hazy light amber with a thin white head that leaves a decent lacing. Not sure why all the hate from other reviewers for this one. While this is definitely nothing spectacular - it comes off a bit thin and does have a slightly off aftertaste - it is still a decent IPA and quite drinkable.
