3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pale copper/orange pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of medium citrus hops dominate. Flavor is malt with a pleasant bitter finish as well. Good carbonation but being a tad thin kept this from being a much better beer. Though I liked it alot.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Clear copper with a lasting head that leaves some soapy lace. Faint aroma of resin and caramel. Tastes of caramel, resin and light citrus are in perfect harmony with a bitterness that lasts throughout, but is not dominating. Light-medium body is creamy smooth and dry, with a nice hop-tingly finish.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Brewgrass08) Soft off-white head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, grass/straw. Taste is medium sweet, pine/grapefruit, some bread. Soft light-medium body. Not what I’d think of as an IPA, my rating is to an APA (else I’d score it lower).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 NIce biscuity malt profile with a biting hop zing on the very end. Poured a nice deep amber with a slight haze. Aroma shows earthy hop with a slight grapefruit overtone. Sharp long bitter finish. A good, if somewhat understated, IPA. Good for new IPA drinkers.

Sampled at the Blues and brews Festival. Pours a dark reddish copper amber. The nose is decent, sweet, some grapefruit peel. Flavor tastes like its old. Perhaps an old keg made it to the festival, not sure. Lightly bitter, earthy, feels like its english. Decent mouthfeel.
