bottle 12 oz. Nice amber/copper color w good straw head that could have stood up longer, some lace, moderate carbonation. Aroma is nice, full, creamy malt w moderate hops, grapefruit, and a touch of spiciness. Flavor is light/medium roasted malt with a quick, sharp hop bitterness and flavor, just a bit sweet, with a touch of nice spiciness. This beer is nicely balanced w a creamy malt and hop bitterness on the finish. In the upper half of medium bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2011 Bottle. Orange malt and orange peel/pine hops aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Earthy barley malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. The first IPA I ever had (1995) - really helped renew my interest in US craft beers. Stands up pretty well. Nice - glad I re-visited this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle Pours an unfiltered light brown with little head and just a trace of lacing. Agree with earlier reviews, hoppy aroma and taste are matched by and with, the bitter rind and pith of grapefruit. Fairly complex medley of flavors. Hops are pretty strong but balanced. Malty as well. Low carbonation here too. The finish is cleaner and quicker than other IPAs I've had. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a slightly hazy caramel, nice frothy off-white head, sticky lacing, but extremely low carbonation.   I also notice fine bits of yeast floating about.   Aroma is slightly hoppy, but very citrusy and floral!   WOW, a nice bouquet of flavor up front, hops, malts, floral, and grapefruit.   Quite a complex IPA this is.   Very floral I am noticing.   Finish with a nice hop bitterness.   Mouthfeel and palate are medium to full.   Did I mention floral?   Not overly bitter, slightly malty... yeah, I can dig it!

Good Solid IPA, had this one and their Kilt Lifter Scothish Ale. I think I like the Kilt lifter a bit more, but both are solid beers.

Tap@Pike. Pretty solid stuff. Some lychee and grapefruit. A blend between English and American style IPA’s. Soft, lightly bitter and generally pretty tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Winking Lizard. Pours a lustrous orange/amber color with a medium ivory head and nice lacing. The aroma is floral hops with some citrus. Medium-bodied with floral hops, tropical fruit and malt. The finish is dry with a bitter and lingering hops flavor. Overall there are very few shortcomings with this IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity, hoppy bitterness greets as you open the bottle. carmel malt, with toffee flavors. Thankfully, hearty malt strength can keep up with the hop sharpness. Nice, well done IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper body, thick head and good lacing. Citrus and fruit aroma. I thought this was a nice, balanced, IPA. A medium amount of sweet malts and just enough resiny hops to qualify it as in IPA and give it a long juicy finish.
