12oz bottle pours clear copper with huge off white head. Aroma pine, citrus, spice, and tropical fruits. Taste is similar to aroma with a yeasty bitter biscuit after taste. A solid IPA very enjoyable, not mind blowing but decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a tinge more copper than a typical ’beer.’ Bubbly with no head. Nose is of typical IPA, but a bit more mellow. Pleasantly bitter; followed by herby hops and a mild linger. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2011 Very nice pungent aroma of alpha hops (the nicest feature of this brew) in a nicely colored pale with frothy head; taste is bitter (didn’t quite get 70+) and pleasant but also rather dry with a high attenuation taste; goodnot great from NB
