3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 22oz bottle, thanks to fonefan for this. bottled 4 months ago. pours a beautiful gold with fluffy white head. nose is very hoppy with citrus and grapefruit notes. flavor is sorta flat like it’s lost it’s luster and hop bite. perhaps the carbonation is too low. there’s still some nice fruity hop flavor and good malt backbone. pretty hoppy and an almost creamy mouthfeel. tasty stuff. 3.6
botlte, fresh from overseas, pours gold white head. nose is heavy phenolic but no one else here said that. some chemy green apple notes too. everyone says this was a hop bomb but i didn’t get that. i’m weird. flavors had phenols green apple citrus pine just too phenolic. 2.8

Draught at KØ07. Hazy dark copper colour. Very good hop aroma. The flavour is also quite hoppy, and nicely so. A good, solid IPA which is also well-balanced.

Thanks to whomever brought this to the noogfest
amber with an off white head, it’s hoppy yet has some creaminess to it. It’s a tasty & well balanced IPA.

Enjoyed at NoogFest III. Nice amber with a light white head and a semi-haze appearance. Lightly floral hop aroma with some grassiness. Subtle hops with citrus peal flavor. Decent malt caramel body holding it up. Very well balanced. Body is medium and creamy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An orange to amber appearance with a herbal, pine, and orange aroma. This one was slightly bitter with some lemons, pine, and oranges present. A milder IPA certainly not a hop bomb but it was very well balanced. A good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange, no head. Smells like citrus - grapefruit with some tart lemon mixed in. Hops dominate the flavor, but there is also a nice caramel and toffee not to balanceit out a little. Citrusy, hoppy finish.
