3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint in a plastic cup at Beer Fest. This is a decent IPA. Itís clean and bitter but with no real standout hop quality. The aroma is coppery and earthy with grassiness. This tastes almost like an English IPA with its assertive malt flavor and earthy, wooden flavor. The finish is quick. This is clean, but needs more hops. It could be conceived that the keg has a little age on it, but didnít taste outright old. Iíll pick up a sixer if I ever see it again and give it another go.

Tap. Pours clear orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pear and apple esters, straw and biscuit malt with pine and resin hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, fruity esters and a malt backbone with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handbottled (thanks K.B.!). HAzy goldeny orange colour with a mediumsized foamy white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, grass, some spruce as well as mild honey and some sweet caramel maltyness. Flavour is rather fruity and floral hoppyness along with some crisp and sweet maltyness. Very nice balance for an IPA. Highly drinkable and refreshing.

On draught at Grande Isle Restaurant.great Happy Hour price, unfortunately serious off-flavor. Pours a very densr dark gold color with solid white head. Hop over malt flavor balance but distracting sour tinge. Unclean lines? Could be a nice hoppy beer but canít tell due to off flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a growler filled at the Avenue Pub. The beer pours an orange-amber color with a large white head. The aroma has a nice amount of bread and toffee, with some strong pine notes added in. The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma. I get quite a bit of pine and orange citrus, with some grass also thrown in. The bready malt keeps the bitterness fairly low and allows the hop flavor to shine. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Slice. Pours a clear dark copper with a one finger foamy off white head that left some nice lacing. The nose is light to moderate citrusy hops with a fairly heavy caramel malt undertone. The hops are moderately bitter with a fairly heavy caramel malt sweetness that dulls out the hops a bit. Lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. A little too heavy on the malt presence for my tastes. I had a dry hopped version at a festival yesterday that was on cask and it was much better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours copper/amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor was hoppy -- resin, citrus, a bit of earthiness -- and reasonably malty. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel pulled off the odd combo of both slightly oily and chewy. Pretty satisfying.

draft. amber caramel, clear, small head. sticky pine sap / resin-heavy nose with requisite pineapple fruit and lemon citrus hops. medium-full body, syrupy and a bit goppy, and just a tad too flabby and chewy as well. strong bitterness but medium-low acid, thatís a problem. caramel-heavy orange-oil floor wax hop finish.
