2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the 12oz bottle. Aromas of stale grassy hops, some citrus. Fuck. This was made in Syracuse. First sip reveals a strong malt backbone, English style, with some bitter astringent finish. Not really terrible, but does not come close to approaching greatness. I repeat, this was made in Syracuse.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a orange with white head. Tastes smells of malt orange citrus hops. Sweet to start off mild bitterness end. Fresh nice mixture of taste. Not a hop bomb which is refreshing and nice. Good solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy hazy orange with small off white head. Aroma is mostly citrus hops and a bit of pine. Medium body, easy to drink. Flavor is like the aroma, mostly citrus hops, mild-moderate bitterness, a little malt but mostly hoppy. Good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus leaning IPA aroma, mainly grapefruit. Almost opaque orange, some good tan head. Flavor is transitions from bitter to bittersweet, then back. Especially dry at finish, otherwise pretty flush for something this bitter. Nice beer, cheeky name.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at dinosaur bbq. Floral toasty grass aroma with an acrid sweer element on this dark yellow beer. A toasty sweet malt dominates. The acrid aspect continues into a lemony cool but too mono dimensionally bitter finish. Would not drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My wife brought this back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a huge foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was grapefruit, lemon and a touch of caramel. The flavor was tangy and tart lemon, orange and grapefruit with undertones of bread and pepper. Medium finish. Medium body but a bit overcarbonated.

Tap @ Chapter House, Ithaca. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head with good lacing. Soft, earthy, orange citrus hoppy aroma. Bitter, creamy, toasty, soapy/floral, dull citrusy hoppy flavor.

12 oz bottle, pours copper with lively carbonation, hints of vanilla and citrus. A very flavorful IPA with a rich taste.

Smells funny. A little vanilla like with some heavy malts. Weird Ipa. Strange name too!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of butterscotch, bread, earthiness and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, light grapefruit and a hint of butterscotch with a crisp moderatly bitter finish. Highly disappointing!
