2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had a weird, almost smoky flavor that sort of killed my interest. Yes, there are the hop notes and citrus flavors, but they’re drowned out by this overpowering flavor of burnt grain. Don’t know if I got hold of a bad bottle or what,, but this isn’t the best IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was lucky enough to be at the brewpub and get to have some of their awesome brews. Bought this one at the food coop down the road and it definitely fell short of the other brews i had. I was flat and uninteresting. You could tell it was trying to support some good hoppy quality but just fell off. Finished slightly watery.

Bottle. Copper pour with thick off white head. Sweet, floral, bread, cake, herb. Too sweet for me on the nose. Some bitterness at the end but not enough to balance the sweetness. One dimensional. More depth would be much nicer. Hard to finish the whole bottle...

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dec. 3, 2011; 22 oz. bomber. Well-carbonated, malty, sudsy IPA with a slightly-out-of-control pour. Bready; grassy; a bit sticky. Superior palate & great balance that lets the malt come through. Quite enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy caramel color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light bitter hops with light floral undertones with a rich caramel malt base. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some floral and lightly bitter hops with a rich caramel mal bill with just enough sweetness to balance the hops profile. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I understand this is not an IPA for hophead but the malt bill is quite incredible and I would love to have this more often.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has some floral notes, sweet malt, bubblegum, with a weird cucumber vegetal finsih. The flavor opens with some floral and herbal hops before turning dry and biscuity with general bitterness at the finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bomber from Canal’s Hainesport. Poured a brownish/aber body with an average sized foamy off white head. Flavor and aroma were just plain horrible, old dirty bread, bad vegtables and old dried out caramel. Add this to the list of badly infected just plain horrible beers from McNeills.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice crisp, slightly hazy copper coloured body with a nice tan head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of grapefruit, floral hops, light malt and a bit of a grassiness. Medium-bodied; Floral and grassy bite at first from the hops with a bit of grapefruit coming through afterwards and a good balance of malt, but a definite herbal kick from the hops. Aftertaste is a bit one-dimensional, but that’s fairly typical for the style and the tastes are squarely on the hops. Overall, a decent IPA, nothing spectacular, but not a bad example. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 08-May-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 05-July-2011.
