2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught pint at the St Louis Park, MN location, October 8 2006. Darkish dirty amber with little head....faintly hoppy aroma, bit of caramel swirling amidst the citric PNW notes, orange mostly....bitter orange again on the tongue, not bad at first but a chalky/dirty somewhat stale character creeps in and the beer finishes dusty-dry and pretty dull.

Nice, I like the British style IPAs the older that I get. I enjoy this one immensely, although it was a bit lighter than I liked, has some nice bitterness, and s mooth and not overly sweet maltiness, that melds well with the bittering hops.

tap-st louis microfest. light orange with a froathy white head with some sparse lacing. big pine nose with notes of fresh-cut citrus (pineapple, lemon) and some grassy hop tones as well. flavors are very resinous with prenouced pine. body verges on being lite but not bad. overall, a decent session brewpub ipa.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy Gold/Orange Coloring with White Head. Light Earthy Hop Aroma. Tastes Like a Nice English IPA...Flavors are Clean and Light... Nicely Rounded English Hops, Tad Grassy with a Medium Mouthfeel....Hops Come out a Bit Dry on the Aftertaste. Nothing Special, Just a Nice Well Rounded IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled in a standard old pint glass which displays a bright golden and orange hue topped by a fluffy head and very nice lace.
The aroma has a nice layer of grassy andlight piney hope, some grapefruit and clove, and healthy dose of biscuity malt.
The flavor profile is a solid bitterness supported by the pale malts, clean and simple which mades a fine drinking IPA. The finish is a tad peppery and astrengent. <sp> Overall, it is a good IPA and what is wrong with that?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
St. Louis Park, MN location. Slightly hazy orange color with a medium head. A difficult to distinguish aroma, but it seemed a little like hops with a grass influence. Lots of bitterness, but of the earthy English vareity. Maybe Fuggles, but not Goldings. A little malt is there. Not bad at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big citrus (orange and grapefruit) with some subtle malt sweetness. Copper orange with red and yellow highlights. White, clingy head. Very well balanced. Hops take the lead, but the malt holds its own. Probably the best beer available at any KC brewpub.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2006 I was suprised at how sweet this beer was. Was expecting a bitter bite from start to finish, and while it had the finish and aftertaste the mouthfeel flavor was sweet. Definitly some citrus, some floral as well. It had some hops to it, but not a hopheads paradise exactly, I enjoyed it, and felt it was good although I cant put my finger on it but its not the best representation of an IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a medium-dark amber beer witha nice citric aroma. This ale follows with the promised grapefruit hoppiness and medium body. Very good American-style IPA.
