4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Orange-reddish colour with a nice lasting off-white head.
The scent is classic US IPA; pine needles, grapefruit, lemon and new cut wood. Full bodied, clean crisp citrusy flavours with a nice caramel note at the end. Dry, bitter finish. A great IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate hoppy nose, very fruity notes, not so aggressive as other US hop varieties. Muddy dark amber body, with a smallish off-white head. Very fruity flavor, pleasant and piney hop flavor, ends moderate bitter. Good one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At the LCRBM: Very interesting and a brew that I’m sure will improve a lot with time! Wonderful orange color with a small layer of a head. Sellery and hops nose - grapey taste with a harsh hoppy dry finish, which goes fast. Definetly one I wanna try again to see how it turns out then.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
(on bottle)TOPDOLLAR aroma, great from just one single hop, witch I never have tried before. US style with pine, elderflower, grass, hemp, wood, great sent here. mediun carbonation and an very harsh finish. The harshness turnedd bad on me, got burning and dominated the rest of half a bottle, not good. kind of unbalanced.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Bottled at LC-RBM. Aroma is hoppy, malty and perfume. Cloudy, amber color, white head, good lace. Very bitter, very sweet, very malty. Dry and bitter finish. Seems to me like an experiment to create an exceptional bitter IPA but they totally lost the balance in this beer.
