6 may 2013, bottle. Gold with pink twinge. Nose is pine and grapefruit rind hops. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Piney, grapefruit, resin hops. Faintly oily. Kind of mediocre.

Yellow, Good head, Some Lacing. Some initial hoppiness fades away quickly and leaves malty aftertaste. But there is something weird in between and canít tell what it is. Not enough hops, a little on watery side.. Drinkable but just fair.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma brings light citrus, lemon and herby hops. Crimson/copper appearance with a huge three-finger foam. Pleasant caramel, honey, biscuit overtones. Light fruit and hops on the tail end. Overall, itís not too bad. Kind of a more malt based IPA. Iíd give this a C rating.

Share tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a clear amber with a lot of tiny bubbles and a lot of head. Decent lacing. Nose is stale floral hops. Medium in body with a decent clean mouthfeel. The flavor is bitter to start and overall malt forward. The finish is like the aroma being kind of like stale floral hops. Not an offensive beer, just not exciting either.

Twelve ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. A nice off white head over a mostly clear copper hued beer. Decent carbonation is visible. A soft aroma has flowers and perhaps a bit of honey. The first sip was bitterness with a nice malt profile. There are hops but they donít provide a lot of flavor. Mid glass a sour after taste developed and it was not really pleasant. Unfortunately it was long lasting. A different choice of hops would help this beer. This is not a winner.

Pours.a dark amber, small amount of head, just enough to cover the top. Smells almost like a bakery wine ale yet doesnít have amount of sugars/alcohol to be one. Taste definitely mimics smell. A bit malty and not very hoppy. Overall I probably wouldnít buy it again but was worth a try.

Not the finest IPA ever, but you know what? It isnít the worst either. Very tolerable, and thatís saying a lot from me, a Stout fan who has been inoculated into an IPA society for the last 1.5 years.

Bottle at SBT. Slight, caramel orange. Juicier orange-citrus hops. soft scotch malts, metal, ístarburstí candy. maybe it is an out of date bottle, hops taste oxidized, or somesuch. Not great
