4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours with a small head. Medium lacing on the glass. Orange - copper color (clear). Slightly malty and some nutty flavors, with a touch of clove. This is an English IPA, but the hops are stronger than usual of this type (in a good way) Nice clean finish. Nice surprise :-)

Rating #37 for 2012
5/17/12 Wabi Sabi Petersburg VA. Draft served cold from a Shaker. Very refreshing and crisp aroma of extremely citrusy hops, some wheat, and spice. Copper color 1/2 inch tan head thick wispy lacing. Sweet for an IPA light to medium hop flavor light citrus and vanilla in the finish. Light to medium carbonation finishes a bit dry. Not bad at all would love to try froma bottle

Tap. Not my fave IPA- prefer hop bombs. Golden with thin white head nice lacing. Had trouble with nose- peaches, vanilla, and citrus? Not too sweet, not too bitter. Light.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This 22 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. Pours a color between orange and amber with a good sized light-beige head that left good lacing rings. Nose shows some nice ripe fruit, such as pear and grapefruit. Body is medium and the mouthfeel is creamy any easy to swallow. The flavor is well balanced between the caramel malts and some floral and citrus hops tastes and nice bitterness. The finish is bitter and flavorful. A very well crafted and easy drinking IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy copper orange with a nice white head. Aroma is of hops, pine and caramel. Has a pretty mediocre taste, nothing special. Some hops, pine, resin and caramel. Definitely worth the $4, though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bought in Harrisonburg, Va. Clear and copper colored. A soapy off white head lasts nicely and leaves sticky lacing. The nose is hard to find and is mostly caramel. The flavor begins with burnt sugary notes and some soggy hops are in there, too. A slow start. The hops grow with warmer temperatures and things smooth out and balance is much better. . They are citrus and floral with some moderate bitterness. The caramel is creamy and brown sugar is tasted. The finish was worth the ride.
