3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ brewpub...Light coppery color with 2 finger head, lacing. Aroma is strong earthy hops. Flavor is dominated by the hops, which impart a nice citrus taste. Some caramel notes are evident, but overall this one is on the bitter side. Clean finish. Good IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 01-08-2012. This bottled IPA pours a very small creamy, smooth head that is fully lasting, gold transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, and orange pine hops. The flavor is grapefruit and orange pine hops and has a short dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. The hops are upfront as they should be for this beer style, but they are not in your face hops. This beer is easy drinking even for us non-hop heads.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is a clear copper color, maybe a touch lighter. With a two-finger slightly off white head and pretty nice lacing. The aroma is incredibly full of piney resin. There is a nice hoppiness and strong citrusy presence. Nothing too fantastic. The flavor is similar. There is a solid hoppiness coupled to a light bitterness before the resin flavor takes over. The mouth feel is decent, there is a medium creamy carbonation, and the aftertaste is bitter and dry, with a touch of resin. Not the best IPA out there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to my neighbor. This beer is a nice hazy copper colored body with a thin but lasting creamy white head. Spotted lacing. The aroma and flavor are herbal, grassy, and fairly malty for an IPA. The palate is medium bodied and has a rather malty feel. A very drinkable beer, which is fortunate, as I have an entire six pack. A bit malty for an IPA, however.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Piney orange hops and caramel malt aroma. Hazy orange amber with a large ivory head. Resinous piney hops and weedy dandelion flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Could use some malt balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks jsquire. Pours a soft copper amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Herbal notes in the nose with a soft leafy quality and a bready character. Diacetyl comes through with notes of caramel malt. A slight toasted bread character and sweetness shows through as well. Medium in body with a sharp finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bills itself as a balanced ipa and that is what it is. Not going to win awards but it is drinkable. Contrary to the description I am content with one. Berry sweet aroma, slight grassiness, mellow flavor, medium to low bitterness.
