Bif (1389) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle- Pours a hazy deep copper color with a good head that fades slowly tolots of lacing. Fairly mild aroma of citrus with a bit of sweet fruit and hint of spice. Taste is a nice tangy bite upfront with citrus, some caramenl sweetness with a nice bitterness through to a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. Very good balance. Good IPA, not overly hopped, really hits the spot.

badwhale (352) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a hazy copper / yellow color with an off white head that lingers, and good lacing. Pretty plain IPA flavors. Some hop bitterness, but not too much. A little too plain for me.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle from Beer Heaven in Philly. Very hazy light amber pour under a medium khaki head. Citrusy aroma. Flavor is a bit more malt-forward with a strong toasted biscuit note then the hops come to play - more piney and herbal than graperfruit. Some caramel, vanilla and white pepper as well. Smooth body and a pretty crisp but strongly bitter finish. Not a bad IPA but not as carefully balanced as the truly great ones.

bhensonb (10777) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours orange amber with a foamy 2 finger off-white head. Pine and floral aromas. Almost tutti frutti. Med body. Flavor is quite fruity. Thereís some resin and light nutty roast caramel. Also perhaps a touch of diacetyl, but this is complicated, so Iím not sure. Finishes rather floral bitter. A bit different from most.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2011
On tap at the Chapter House in Ithaca last weekend. The menu just said "Middle Ages IPA," but Iím pretty sure this is what it was, given that itís the only English IPA listed for Middle Ages. Served in a pint glass. The pour brings an orange-copper brew with a good white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some slightly-earthy and floral hops along with a slight touch of diacetyl, though here it works well. Body has some semi-sweet bread and caramel plus light toffee. Some hop flavor, though that comes in more toward the finish, which has a pleasing dry bitterness. Good balance between sweet and bitter, and the yeast threw off a bit of diacetyl that was allowed to remain, but it fits well with the style. Another solid effort; I really enjoyed all of the beers I had from them. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-04-2011

beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Iíve seen this beer umpteen times in the store and just never have gotten around to rating one until now. Pours a clear golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Surprisingly little aroma to this beer despite being poured at cellar temp (approx 58 degrees). A few wisps of pine and malt, but thatís even a stretch. The flavor is malt followed by some moderate grassy herbal hops bitterness. Medium bodied. Fairly dull for an IPA.

Bottle. Dusty orange with a healthy layer of foam. Enticing aromas of orange and grapefruit with vinyl hovering in the background. A pleasant, fruity bitterness initially excites, but upon further examination the flavour seems a little flat, too chalky and one-dimensional. Average for a micro IPA.
