2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Copper, cloudy color with a small head. Not as floral tasting or smelling as advertised. More traditional IPA in both taste and aroma.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The finish is flat and disappointing. It has a muted, but nice floral smell. Pours dark and a little cloudy with an off white head. Almost no after taste, but it doesn’t finish clean. It just leaves a faint dry sensation. Eh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A well balanced IPA. Not too hoppy and not too bitter. Definitely worth a try if you are an IPA lover. Moderately priced as well at under $2.00 a bottle.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy dark orange, nearly brown with a one finger thick white head with substantial head retention and lacing.
Aroma is very earthy and dank with just a few touches of tropical citrus. Lots of toast and caramel underneath coming from the malt. Really nice and somewhat unique in the IPA world.
Lots of biscuit in the flavor combined with the earthy dank hops. Toasted caramel as well. The biscuit really stands out, though. Some more juicy tropical fruit underneath with almost a bit of smoke in the finish although it is very subtle. Bitterness is only moderate and the finish somewhat sticky.
Overall, I really like this beer. I love the biscuit malt character and the hops are somewhat unique. I would like a slightly drier finish but all in all, this is an excellent brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from unknown, via Darton. Pours a rich amber-orange, little to no off-white head. Aroma slight, with some floral overtones, crisp and subtle. Body lively, finish full with a crisp biscuit malt character. Well-balanced, but not much bitterness. Possibly negatively affected by age, but can see the stirrings of a good beer.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like an ipa. Bright. Hops. The body is smooth and light, bit syrupy. Citrus, honey-ish, I am pairing this with Indian food, so I may be off on the tasting notes. Basic decent ipa.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A vast bouquet of hops, featuring notes of pine resin, citrus and stone fruits, and flowery notes. Slightly hazy, burnt sunset orange, with a mostly fading white head. Dry, juicy, piney. Light-medium bodied, pretty clean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft: copper with a nice light tan head. Very floral and slightly fruity. It’s got a nice caramel backbone, and is fairly full bodied. This is well balanced and extremely enjoyable, but has nothing "exciting" going for it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Zipp’s Liquors. Pine, crushed flowers, some earthiness in the nose. Coppery/amber color. Mild citrus and some resinous touches / sweet maltiness / very light lingering hops. Medium body. Well-balanced, middle of the road IPA. Drinkable and pleasant.
