An amber apperance with a beige head. The aroma contains some oats, caramel, and lemons. The flavor is a bit malty and dark for an IPA but hey why rock the norm right? Anyways some bready notes, toffee, with a bit of citrus like lemons and grapefruits. Overall this was ok at best

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I understand this to be a relabelled version of the later, more hopped Warsh Pail, but if the powers that be think this another beer, so be it. Medium copper colored body with a light khaki head. The aroma has some old musty grapefruit and light bread crust. There is also some nutty character. The taste has some fiarly bitter burnt bread crust with some light orange peels behind that. This has a fairly thin and watery body and flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 12oz bottle, courtesy of General_Gao. Thanks, Colin! Pours a hazy, yellow-amber color; light tan head with patchy lacing. Loads of soft flowers and irises and stems in the aroma; very, very floral. Medium mouthfeel: creamy floral and earthy bitter notes; the floral character throughout is quite odd, honestly, and too dominant. Medium finish: breadiness and earthiness, with toasty malts.
