4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The thing that really suprise me about this beer was the aroma. I found a little smokyness in the nose, which combined insanely well with the floral hops to make one interesting sniff. A creamy mouthfeel, nicely balanced hop/malt attack and a bit of sweetness and this is one excellent IPA. I want more!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (according to brewmaster it had only resided in the bottle for two days!). Golden brown with average off-white creamy head. Flowery and bitter aroma displaying an almost perfect balance between hops and malt. Creamy on the the palate and with flavor of dried citrus peel and more hops and malts. Finish lingers on for more than a minute. Almost perfect american pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Again I think I got the backwash of the boys here...I really should plan these parties better, big soapy frothy citrusy mouthful--the abc version-- hard to judge an appearance off of. Never really seemed to dissipate. The commerical description "fermented with an American ale yeast strain" sounds like terrorism..........

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky brown with a creamy off-white head, great lace. Big hoppy aroma, passionfruit, toffee, grapefruit, very very nice. The body is a slight let down, its sweet, hoppy, warming and slightly spicy... I guess everything you would want from a big IPA. The problem for me was the shocking lack of balance with and what seemed to be a light oxidation. The finish is long and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at RBESG 2006. A bit cloudy in both appearance and taste, not that I know what clouds taste like really, but this is probably a fair guess.
