3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Slightly cloudy light amber. In spite of description this IPA seems British to me. Not much aroma, and taste was mostly bitter rather than fruit/herbal.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a pretty good IPA yet the hops weren’t real aggressive. It’s good, but no real knockout. I’d buy the imperial version 95 times out of a 100. It’s that much superior.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange color with an almost clear appearance, little cloudy with a 1 finger white head. The aroma is citrusy, earthy. The flavor is well balanced, at the beginning is malty with lemon, orange, grapefruit notes and ends up with a light hops flavor. As this beer warms up you can start feeling the hops more present but still, not so strong as other IPA’s. It’s a very well balanced IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent, balanced IPA. Malt-forward with somewhat of an English-style slant. Cakey, bready sweetness. Earthy and yeasty. Pleasant hop flavors (sweet grass, light citrus) and aromas (flowers, hay). Hop aromas are somewhat restrained, but nicely in the background. Light to moderate bitterness.
