3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle from Binnyís Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you canít expect too many non-repeatable variations.

16oz can-rich tan-dk amber. A-resin, doughy-med malt. T-follows. Carbonation is a bit soft, still a nice drinking beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Thanks to CanIHave4Beers! A rich copper pour is topped with a fluffy light tan head. Bright citrus and caramel are up front on the nose. There is also a little bit of dough. This tastes like sugared up grapefruit mixed with iced tea. There is a little bit of caramel in the strong black tea finish. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my tastes. Smooth mouthfeel for the ABV.

From a can.
The beer pours a hazy orangish gold with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a little sweet with some grassy & citrusy hops.
The flavor is nice enough, sweeter and more malt forward than I usually like my IPAs to be. The bitterness balances this to a degree and itís got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.
Not really my style of IPA, good enough though... Iíve had worse from "cooler" breweries.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pour is dark orange with giant foam head. Aroma is orange, lemon, sweet, toasted malt. Taste is pine and citrus hops, punch but not overly so, some resin, light toasted malt back.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with tons of head, IPS color. Almost no aroma. Disgustingly sweet with very little hop character. No date on the can, so add that to the list of failures.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. beer refrig. bottle carefully poured to a Czech-pils glass, but still produced an overly abundant amount of cream colored, meringue-like head foam on top of a hazed, orangy gold hued liquid, with a good deal of rising effervescence to the modest amount of beer that was exposed, and lasting, patchy lacing. The nose was lemony & grapefruity, some sweetness, and a touch of pine. The flavor was a decent earthy, rindy, and lingering hop bitterness, but was otherwise very sweet to the taste. Light bodied, with any good effervescence wasted on the head, as the carbonation seemed to flatten out, leaving the texture a little thin on the palate. Alcohol influence was negligible. The aroma was promising, but the appearance and taste were more in line with many homebrew/extract recipes that Iíve sampled.

Can. Slight haze, orange copper pour with a foamy head. Citrus and floral hop, some caramel sweetness. Bitterness is moderate. Not bad.

On tap @ Milwaukee Ale House, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Nice amber hue. Aroma of hops is second only to the palate punch you get from the bitterness. WOW! This is one spicy meatball! Hopped to the max.
Not a slammer. One has to sip this. If youíre looking for a sweet tasting light beer, this aint it!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep orange pour with off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel and vegetal pine hops. Sweet caramel malt upfront, lightly toasted, with more vegetal and somewhat minty hops. A little slick and heavy on the palate. Pretty gross.
