Draft. Poured a clear light copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown/orange and hazy body with a white head. Aroma is very light but otherwise typical to IPAs, hops mostly. Taste is quite pleasant as the bitterness is not too much. Mouthfeel is light and soft. Itís quite simple IPA but not bad by any means.

Not as many hops as you might see in some other West Coast style IPAís. It is enjoyable. I have had better west coast IPAís but I think this is pretty decent.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Yuck. Offered this by a friend, I decided to sip it a bit in order to review it on here. Aroma is savage - a blast of household cleaner, pine needles, citrus and peppermint pungency clear out anything blocking the sinuses. Flavor is sharply piney and medicinal, with an exceedingly bitter aftertaste that I was only able to wash out with a good dose of the Guinness. Rank.
To be fair, if your an IPA drinker, then I imagine itís the ticket - not as hoppy as some, but packs a wallop. Go for it if you like this sort of thing.
