3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is the 3rd type of Blind Pirate that I tried, including the regular and blood orange. I liked this better than the regular, but maybe not as much as the blood orange. The extra hop/IBU balances out the malty sweetness,....which I think the regular Blind Pirate could be balanced a little better, so maybe this is what it needs. Good citrus and bitter in there. Not top notch quality but maybe towards the bottom of 2nd tier for this style. Cloudy darker orange to copper appearance. I would sample this again.

So far in my limited experience this is the best IPA I've had. It's just another example of Monday Night making great beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark and cloudy amber with a finger of light tan head. Aroma is sappy resin citrus with toasted sweet malts. Flavor is bitter and engrossing on the palate. There are sweet floral notes but the majority is consumed by the bitter hop character.

12oz bottle of expired beer thanks to some douche bag on HBT!!! Pours an Ice-T brown color with a small beige head of foam. Aroma of rotted citrus and loads of malty expired IPA! Taste is herbal, malty, lemon ice-t, and pine. Taste is better then the aroma, but once again an expired beer from a shitty trade!

slight simcoe aroma. Dark orange with yeast floating. Kind of a harsh flavor with a little bit of aftertaste.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Big citrusy nose, and a bit stinky, rude fruitiness. Bright but hazy copper color. Caramel, tasty hops, some overripe fruit, sugar. Some balance in finish. Medium body. Not quite a caramel bomb... but almost. Very nice aromas.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a slightly hazy pale burnt orange with thin eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of bitter and piney hops with a bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and lightly toasted malts, resiny, citrus hops, moderate bitterness, I think I like this a little better than the average, yes it’s malt forward but decent beer.
