3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a growler. I liked this one. Very fruity and floral nose, with notes of grapefruit, a general fruit cocktail aroma which is kind of like pears, pineapple and marachino cherries. It’s also slightly grassy in the nose, almost like Amarillo hops, but it’s also a little bit dank and I don’t usually get that from Amarillo. Semi-dry taste, starchy as well, with some nicely bitter grassy hop flavors, crisp and snappy hops, with some sweet and resinous apple flavors in the finish. Well-made.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Barleys, Asheville NC, 6 July 2006. Orange colour. Rather murky and muddy appearance. Moderate hop presence throughout. Plenty of orangey citrus and a twist of pine. Hops do not dominate the malt backing too much. Smooth and clean mouthfeel. Nor a hop bomb but a pleasant, eminently drinkable IPA.

Smapled from a growler: Transparent copper orange pour has a thin froth of wispy white head. Aroma of orangy citrus hops and a touch of sweet caramel malt. Body starts slightly caramely malty sweet with a black peppery hoppy character and some citrusy flavor hops. Not sure if I like the black peppery hoppy flavor, but otherwise a pretty decent IPA.
