3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. Bottle from the Brew Pub.
Impressive, a good "middle of the road" IPA that does not go "over the top with the hop". Well done here.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Darker amber colored body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. Caramel and biscuity notes, mellow citrus, floral, and piney hop character. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, semi-sweet throughout, muddled finish.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice IPA. Pretty copper color that is clear and laces well. Nose is very floral and taste follows through with nice hops and a little bitterness lingering.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is full citrus, hops. Taste is completely different. Not so hoppy and not citrusy. Didn’t really liked the taste in fact.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aggressively hopped, but more on the British IPA spectrum rather than the juicy west coast iteration.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent but typical IPA. Aroma was very floral. Rose petals, earth and fresh cut grass. Pour was a light bubbly gold with a one finger white head. Taste was not very hoppy, but a nice refreshing beer. Light malt and earthy hops that does not linger. Would be a good lawnmower beer. Mild carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a cloudy orange copper with no head. The aroma is floral hop and pine. Medium mouth with nice bitterness, grapefruit, and resin. Decent.

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.

Aroma - nice balance of piney hops and floral hops.
Appearance - reddish-copper color body; clean and clear; head is about 1/2" white head
Taste - piney hops and a nice floral quality
Palate - body is medium; texture is moderate, and not oily; carbonation is lively; the finish is a nice hop roar that hangs on for a decent time.
