4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Damn good IPA. Pours clear with the small white head. Smells of citrus hops attack the nostrils. Tastes like a top flight IPA. I don’t understand the low ratings, must be the name. If this had a well-known name it would be one of the top Ipa’s. Palate is medium-bodied, totally carbonated. Like I said this is a great IPA, if you get your hands on it, must try, be fair.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour form a 12 oz bottle. Medium amber, slightly cloudy, one finger of off white head. Aroma dominated by resinous hoppiness - nice. Taste follows the aroma - a tart hoppiness comes on with the start of the swallow and transforms into a very nicely balanced hoppy finish. There are a lot of fine modern IPA’s out there these days, and this one can claim a spot with the best.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6oz sample at MTS - Aroma is flowery citrus hops and caramel malt. Pours cloudy light brown with a ring head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the hops really sticking out. Palate is tart and crisp. A nice tasty IPA. Reading the other ratings makes me wonder if I got a fresh keg or something.
