3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head. I don’t find that the nose is too strong, but I could get a little hoppiness in the nose. Taste is somewhat bitter, but muted enough to not overpower the senses.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tester at brewpub Partly cloudy copper body with a long lasting white head. Intense oak, pine and orange zest aroma. Body felt tailor made for a cask conditioning, soft, viscous and oily. This oily texture holds together eathy spices and citrus fruits flavours. The malt is there to support the flavours but not add to them. The carbonation was very soft even by cask standards. As far as american IPAs are concerned this one is more refreshing than aggressive. Very good

Pint at Tribecca Tavern - Pours a hazed copper body capped by a foamy off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, citrus/grapefruit, floral, caramel and a little bit of peach as well. Taste is sweet - with grapefruit, peach, orange and caramel. Not quite as bitter as some IPA’s - Smooth drinking - enjoyed this more than I expected.

12 oz bottle from jcwattsrugger. Looks like a hand bottle with a paper hand lettered label taped on. Pours an amber/orange, slightly hazed with a one finger beige head. Minimal lace. Flowers and citrus on the aroma. Flavor is more on the malt side. Buttered biscuits with honey. Secondary fruit hop bitterness. Fuller bodied, low carbonation with a bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served from the tap with a cloudy amber/copper color, and a thin but sticky head. The aroma is a potent combination of pine and earth that isn’t going to blow anyone away, but is nice. The flavor likewise impresses, with an earthy hop character throughout that is bitingly bitter. It’s not wonderful or exciting, but it is at least as good as many average IPAs. A tingly carbonation cuts through the dense, unctuous texture.

On draught at Barleys, Knoxville on 8 July 2006. Coppery colour. Bags of hops throughout, with pleasing piney/resinous character and plenty of grapefruit. Light biscuity, and slightly fruity, malt on the palate provides some balance. Very clean mouthfeel. Overall, very tasty and enjoyable.
