3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE REVIEWED: August 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: enjoying a nice haul from our State College weekend...APPEARANCE: clear, red amber body that streams a steady effervescence; dirty white head settles from a solid finger to a creamy resilience flaring with sunbursts of lacing--great to look at... AROMA: brilliant botanical array of lilac, carnations and grass; secondary scents of spices such as allspice and nutmeg--invitingly complex... PALATE: mellow, medium-bodied and drinkably relaxed; a thin yet consistent aftertaste holds to the back of the throat; creamy, if anything... TASTE: a solidly established pale ale, though not big enough for the India moniker--well-rounded, perhaps, by the soft, sweet malts that balance every sip; the malts--creamy, buttery--escort blunted hops along the journey, with a sessionable invitation... OVERALL: although a pleasant sipping beer, I find it tough to call this IPA anything beyond above average, as so many breweries are setting thee bar so high in this style...still, tough to slam a beer that is aesthetically pleasing and delivers on its promise with enough balance to convince--albeit temporarily--that the overhopped IPA is not the way to go ....

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into grenade pint glass
Appearance - Pours a nice red/orange color with a thin white head that lasts nearly 5 min.
Smell - Meet initially with some piney aroma from the hops as well as a little bit of sweet caramel aroma.
Taste - a great balance between malt and hop. The maltliness starts strong, with the hops finishing strong.
Mouthfeel - Good carbonation and body for beer style. Not too thin but just right.
Overall - A great brew to drink on an average occasion. A very good standard IPA and one I would recommend over more well know such as 60 min. IPA.

Appearance - reddish-copper color body; clean and clear; head is about 1/2" white head

Very nice to look at. Clear amber with a red tint, small head. The aroma is floral and fruity. The taste disappoints though. Slightly fruity with a bit of caramel. A bit thin as well.

Decent IPA, with a hearty flavor. Doesn't wow me or surprise me, pretty basic.

An okay crisp brew. Has a bit of a nice spice taste blended with the hops, smooth aftertaste with standard bitter hop flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a decent color with a nice reddish/brown hue to it, a nice white one finger head, and decent lacing on the glass. The beer has a decent citrusy hoppy scent and a mild medium malty finish. The beer tastes decent with a medium citrusy flavor that is followed by a well balanced maltiness to it. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is well carbonated and has a lingering bitterness from the hops. Overall, a decent IPA but it doesmt blow you away..but decent.
