Hazy orange color with a beige head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Taste is very bitter and hoppy, also dry and tangy. Very good and unusual.

An average IPA nothing bad about it. I enjoy the aroma that stands out as its best feature to me.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Poured clear golden brown with little head. Tiny bit of pine coming through but not much else. Would have again.

Slighty piney IPA, pours clear pale colour. Decent for an IPA, not something too amazing but pretty good overall, hops werent too strong quite drinkable, would have again

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An above average IPA that didnít benefit from me trying it immediately after the TBK White Raja (wow, thatís a great beer!).
This beer is a copper/biscuit color with a pretty tall but loosely packed head. Aroma is some nice hop citrus-ness with the Cascade aroma up-front. Flavor is good bitterness, with more citrus packed in. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, but not bad. A very serviceable beer - I would recommend it.
I had this on-tap at Roziís Wine House in Lakewood, OH.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This IPA is terribly on style. Odor of a pine tree with some slight intuiging BO. Thick oily pour. No signs of co2. Very bitter all the way thru. Very similar to NP viscious wheat IPA. Yes, terribly on style and plowing across my palate.

Good, standby IPA. Blend of citrus/pine notes, creamy white head, delicate lacing, amber-orange coloration. Recognized two out of four hop varieties right away.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours amber with an off white head and some light lacing. The nose brings out some very light citrus and pine hops with a bit of caramel malt in the background. Taste is of very light hops with some caramel and semi sweet malt. Feel is medium with light bitterness. Overall, just an average beer.
Serving type: on-tap

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep burnt orange to amber with little head. Nose is a nice floral bouquet of citrus, flowers, grapefruit and lemons blended with some light caramel malts. Taste is hop dominate with bright citrusy cascade backed by just a touch of caramelly malts. Crisp hops and bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is just a little rough in a good way. Overall I liked it though the hop profile is a little basic.
