3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a tea hue into the glass, with a wispy silken head and lots of active carbonation bubbles rising through the liquid. The nose is of sweet dough, but not very prominent. Flavors are very bitter throughout, with a touch of tea and some English malt accents. Lingering pepper finish, with a seltzery mouthfeel. Substantive on the palate, a bit of an Impy ESB honestly, though. Needs a bit more malt and indicative floral and citrus notes to shine as a next-level IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Southern Season, bottle date 02/16/11
Ar: Citrusy aroma, as expected. Not quite as hop dominance on the nose as I expected.
Ap: Pours a hazy light orange with a full, creamy white head. Epic rings of lace. Really a good looking IPA.
T: Loads of hoppyness. Mild malt presence with a very bitter finish for a standard IPA. Slightly peppery, a touch of citrus.
P: Nice moderately carbonated body.
O: Pretty modest IPA. Hop flavors a bit different from what Iím used to, not that thatís a bad thing.

Fruity hop aroma. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance and hoppy with a pineapple flavour. A hint of bitterness in a dry malt finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at Mellow Mushroom Asheville. Good aroma, sweet. Citrus, orange when cold, more grapefruit as warmed. really a Orange creamsicle scent. Litely hazed brownish orange. Good head, spotty lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finsih. Nice, solid ipa, flavor has soapy streak about it that was slight turnoff, but didnít ruin it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours semi-clear copper gold. Nose of pineapple, caramel malts, citrus and light pinewood box. Taste is strong caramel malts with citrus, hops and a dry almost cedar wood finish. Mouth feel is a little on the thin side, but not bad. Decent over all IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden orange with some light floaties and a big, rocky offwhite head. The aroma is spicy hops mostly, with some hints of yeast and light sweet malt. The flavor is a nice spicy bitterness with just a touch of grapefruit. Itís balanced with some light toast and malt character. The hops become more herbal toward the finish, where there is also a bit of graininess. Mild bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange out of the bottle with a short lived white head. Sweet candied grapefruit rind nose. Thin grapefruit juice flavors with some malts underneath. Easy drinking IPA but not very interesting.
