3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Chucks poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about 1 finger of frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is medium-light bitter and very lightly sweet. Taste of light citrus and heavy pine. Medium bodied with an oily and slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink it again.

I like it- thanks Jungle Jim’s. Not a Stone or a Torpedo or a Two hearted but I like it quite a bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a slightly hazy gold with a sticky off-white head.
Juicy sweet malt aroma is played off by the fresh citrusy hop aromas.
The flavor is towards the bitter side, but not overly so. Nice long dry hop finish. Medium body.

Looks light, fading yellow and a sloppy head. Light hops and grapefruit, nothing special. Tasted great, but again nothing special except for a refreshing lingering bitterness.

A dark gold pour with an off-white head. The aroma is mostly grassy hops. The medium body has an oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter from start to finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Arnold’s on May 19, 2011. Moderate to dark ambe color, small off white head, moderate piney nose, body a little thinner than expected, good bittersweet flavor with the hops really coming through after somewhat watery initial mouthful. Not spectacular, but overall a solid IPA

Drank this while the power was out so I couldnt see it very well. Clear gold best I could tell. Aroma of fruit, pine, tropical citrus. Taste is mostly malt heavy, mild bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This starts with a touch of grassy hops. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. There’s a nice blast of pine and citrus to start this beer off, a bit of sweetness, then a decent biter finish. Slightly slick mouthfeel, and an easy drinking IPA. It’s a solid one, but there are better ones out there.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 12 oz bottle. Clear copper with a little ring of creamy bubbles and nice lace. Earthy pine, cereal, and citrus nose. Flavor is similar, but has some soap and plastique; a slightly odd bitterness. Light medium body is oily and soft, a bit too frothy, but pretty well-balanced.
