3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 mostly clear deep amber body. Big, wet nose of caramel cherry malt, sticky cedar scented hops, disjointed and a bit messy. Big full and chewy crystal malt, some wet hop qualities, greenness, but not really that fresh or fruity, more like veggies (celery). Okay overall, but messy, and comes across as a hoppy red ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of gunhaver. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is malty sweet with crystal malts, some citrus hops and a bit of earthiness. The taste has some pine and citrus with a decent hop flavor and a nice layer of hop bitterness. Dries out a tad into the finish creating a good balance for this tasty brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transparent deep golden bronze color with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy grapefruity hops and a touch of pale malty sweetness. Body starts with good fullness and a nice amount of sweetness which is well-balanced with the resiny bittering and flavor hops before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A nice, very drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft this beer poured a ruby caramel color with a large khaki head. The aroma was fruity, floral and lightly piney hops. The flavor was bitter, tart, fruity and piney with a floral hop undertone and light sweet malts. The finish is short and hoppy. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at KClingers. Dark brownish amber. Creamy but thin top. The aroma is woodsy. This drinks with a British appeal, hoppy, but in a woodsy way. Rich malty background. (#3909, 5/21/2010)
