Thanks to my Secret Santa for the bottle. Nice copper pour. Herbal hops and tea aroma with a touch of citrus. Spicy, herbal tea like taste with a nice malt presence. Finishes with a touch of citrus. Pretty good.

Bottle at the Mad Dog in the Fog, San Francisco. Orangey pour with a slight haze and a smallish white head. Piney hop, citrus and sweet malts in the nose and flavour. Fullish mouthfeel. Dry lingering bitter finish. Decent, but a bit one dimensional, and not one that will linger especially long in the memory.

Pours a light gold with relatively long lasting foam. Smells mild and a slightly floral. Tastes bitter with several types of hops, one of which seems somewhat salty. Pretty good, with plenty of bitterness, but nothing amazing.

bread, floral, grass, citrus, herbs, leaves, grapefruit was the most dominante flavor for the total domination IPA, overall a great beer not easy to drink more than one bottle though.

Bottled (thanks omhper!). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, floral hops, some mild grass as well as toffee and caramel malts. Flavour is fruity hops, toffee, grass, bready and caramelly malty. Quite long and fruity aftertaste.

Light amber. The nose has loads of sticky honey to it. In the mouth there is a large cereal character. The dryness is intense and ////basically the only hop character with a light dusty flavour. This is what I would think one of the original IPAs may have been like, the alcohol is apparent and the flavour hearty and moreish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy amber, with white head. Grapefruit, citrusy hops, slightly metallic, and dry earth malt in the back ground. Decent IPA, but not something I would search out.
