3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
A - A crystal clear amber body with a moundy off-white head. Average retention with very little lacing.
S - Sweet Mandarin orange, bready malt, hints of green grass.
T - Nice caramel/toffee malt, slightly roasted, doughy bread, sweet tangerines, very light green pine in the background. The pine picks up and starts building bitterness around the edges of the tongue finishing bitter with a kiss of citrus and honey sweetness.
M - Very smooth and creamy feel, medium soft carbonation, crisp finish.
Not super complex but this is one of the smoothest drinking IPAís Iíve had. It was hard to drink it slow. Good all around. I would definitely drink this again.

Aroma is a hint of citrus. Appearance is a copper golden hue. Poured a nice 2-3 finger head from bottle. Nice lacing. Taste is a pleasantly bitter citrus , not over whelming. Almost a malty backbone. Overall a good IPA, very sessionable. Worth a try.

Bottle(s) from a sixer bought @ Gomerís midtown in KC and then pounded in our La Quinta hotel room after a 9 hour drive. Poured into styrofoam hotel room cups. Nice light gold pour, real fluffy white head. Aroma of grass, sugar, orange, grapefruit, bubblegum. Taste is grapefruit, grass, lemon zest, a bit of soap, sweet without being too sugary or sticky. Real easy drinking on a warm day.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours copper in color with a small white head. Piney bitterness up front in the nose. A good amount of hop bite in the taste too. Highly carbonated. Noticeable alcohol. The alcohol mixes with a grainy astringency to leave a dry and somewhat harsh finish. Just OK in my mind. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good IPA. Strong citrus and floral hop aroma. Golden to amber color with what appeared to be substantial carbonation. Crisp clean palate that matched the carbonation to the bitterness. More citrus hop flavor with a subtle malt background that balanced without much sweetness. Good drinkiní beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks great, but not much at all in the aroma. Taste is slightly better but still pretty bland for an IPA. Good mouth feel. Enjoyable, just not a world class IPA.
