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.

Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a moderate amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma is of some grainy malts...no hops. Taste is of bready malts, light caramel and maybe some grassy hop? Drainpoured by Dmac..

The aroma was fruity sweet with a lot of booze. The flavor had a crisp bread and yeast feel with a bit of bitter at the back. Nice clean and dry finish, quite drinkable. Nice for the hot months

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
22 oz bomber. Pours a deep orange caramel amber with a large foamy light cream colored head. Aroma of V-8 vegetable juice, barley, sour notes and faint floral hops. Taste of vegetables, barley, acidic notes and sourness. I agree with blankboy that this one is infected. Could barely touch this one. Drain pour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle [22oz]. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size lasting off-white head. Mild aroma of vegetal notes, light earthy hops, citrus, caramel malt and plastic -- mildly infected? Flavour’s the same: Vegetal, sour and plastic-ey, also somewhat astringent in the finish, simply not pleasurable to drink. Average bodied. Not good enough to finish drinking, a drainpour for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and vegetables aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Interesting brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice large fluffy off-white head of varying sized bubbles. Mild hoppy and bitter aroma with some oranges, light toasted malts and a bit of spice. Color ia a dark orangish brown. Mellow and very smooth flavor. Incredibly easy drinking brew that is great for a hot summer day. Mild malts and a tad of sweetness along with a bit of floral hops. Hops are pretty minimal though. Finishes a bit malty with some dry lingering bitterness. A pretty good IPA.

Nice IPA, good hop presence, but not overwhelming, which is a good thing. Would have this again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Apparently I enjoyed this one a lot more than some other raters here--on cask at the brewpub. Very rich, creamy beer with a nice range of grapefruit and grass hops. Very good.
