3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this at the 2012 Brew Week in Athens, Ohio. Pours a very light to golden brown. Light hops aroma. Medium bitter taste. Light to medium body with a creamy, fluffy texture. Not a particularly impressive IPA but nice.

12 ounce bottle, poured an amber color with aromas of hops, light spice, and some grapefruit. Flavors were the same, light citrus followed by some light spicy hops, with a touch of bitterness on the backend.

From the bottle. Scent is malts and some sort of spice I canít put my finger on. Taste is sweet caramel and butterscotch... Really no hop influence. Goes down kind of sticky... Not impressed.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour copper color. Nose of some dank hop, and if I search hard, some spicy hop aroma. Initial mild grapefruit bitterness, but I have to search for the hop flavor. some decent bitterness, but most flavor comes from the malt, more caramel flavor.

I good IPA from a small brewery. There is plenty of hops here, but missing some of the citrusy hints that come along with many IPAss.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of a Mt. Carmel variety 12 pack from Delhi Township Kroger. Nice medium amber hue, medium white head, sweet piney/fruity aroma, amply assertive bittersweet flavor with an underlying sweetness thatís a litle different than that of other IPAs Iíve had. Solid brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Orange amber brew with dense off white head. Aroma dominated by malt with some floral hops. Taste is sweet malt with solid resinous bittering at the end. A little more malty than standard American IPAís but still pleasant. Hops and finish are pronounced enough but are rather simple - some citrus in hops would really kick this up.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle mix pack. clear copper. toasty malt aroma with citrusy hop notes. flavor is quite malty for an ipa with toasty, chalky notes with some biscuit flavors. hops are there, mostly leaving a bittering quality on the tonque, but the malts are powerful and take over.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours a mudium haze golden amber with medium white head. Aroma is fruity with some esters and malt sweetness but the hops are kind of missing my nose. Flavor has a lot of bitterness and again thatís the only hop that comes through here is some caramel malt but there is a an astringency to it and some yeast character thatís not extremely welcome. Overall this is missing a lot of the hop flavor Iím looki for in an ipa this may be a classic example and I have no idea but its not like what I junk of when I want a strong ipa hop flavor, just missing too much for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pillowy mousse-like head on top of fairly cloudy orange beer. Aroma of pine and crystal malt. Good body and bitterness. Citrusy hops in the flavor--grapefruit-ish. Refreshing for an IPA. Donít understand the low average rating unless itís due to variability.
