2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 maybe it is an out of date bottle, hops taste oxidized, or somesuch.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
