3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a medium copper color with a slight white head. The aroma has a light citrus rind note with some florals. Medium/light mouthfeel. One of the more hoppier pales I have had before. Starts with a light caramel type flavors and then transitions into a hoppy resin citrus rind. Bitterness lingers on. No evidence of the alcohol.

Bottle pours a light copper with a thin white head. Scent is bready and piney. Taste is bitter and citrus. Half way done, nice lacing. Not sure I would have called this an ipa seems more apa. Earthy/bready bitter aftertaste. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught, this pours a dark tea hue into the glass with a diminished head that leaves cascading lace reminiscent of light whipping cream. The nose is somewhat tannic and peppery. The flavors are of English hops, tea-like tannins, pepper and some dry citrus with a peppery peel finish. The body is medium and the mouthfeel would make for a great sessionista... very drinkable. Not overtly complex, but has substance and satiates the palate nicely. Great pub food brew, and pairs well with many foods. Good job.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted from a bottle obtained as an extra in a trade. Pours hazy orange-amber with an average white head that leaves a bit of lace collar. The nose is caramel malt with a green hops aroma coming through nicely. The flavor is dominated more by the hops with the malty notes in more of a support role. The citrus flavors are nice with just a hint of nuttiness on the back as well. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long bitter and citrus hops finish.

Sampled at charlotte octoberfest 2009. These guys were a pleasant and surprising find at the festival. Good beers coming out of here. This one was no exception. One of the better IPAs I came across today. Predominately citrus hop profile with a bitter grapefruit finish. Clear dark orange, amber color with a decent off white head.
