3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden pour and a thick white head. The nose is lightly piny. Fairly straightforward palate with a mix of pale malt, light pine and a fairly prickly/peppery finish. It has a little bit of light fruitiness on the back of the palate. Fairly simple, but well-made IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
WOW! This one surprised me, I heckled my wife for picking one up for me but damn pretty nice hop aroma, a mix of citrus and pine. Nice caramel body that mixes with the citrus and pine well on the tongue. This beer is a little timid for an IPA but this beer really surprised me and I enjoyed it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I had this while on holiday to Arizona. We canít get it in Michigan, so I had to try it. I was quite surprised by this, as I ha d not heard of it, but it was better than their trippel! It poured a lovely dark amber, with small head. Plenty of hop character to keep any hop head satisfied. My only complaint is that wasnít citrusy enough... but besides that it was great!! Cheers!

Nice IPA thatís medium and light and has everything youd want in smaller quantities. Light malts though. Some grassy hops and piney ones, not really my thing but I like this beer and at $7.97 sold everywhere, I put it in the leagues with SNPA. Nice one by NB.

Served from a 22 oz bottle from Baronís. The appearance is a paler golden brown with a large foamy white lacing head. The aroma are full of floral hops and some English notes. The flavors are a little less intense of the same but really pleasant.. Overall a nice IPA,.

This was...o.k. I was grilling chicken outside and felt in the mood to drink it, which was rare because Iím not a fan of IPAs. But the key thing is that the finish held the bitterness and the flavors in reasonable balance. Decent. Bottle.
