3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The nose is full of apricot and herbs, with a hint of candied pineapple. Flavor has a firm backbone of herbal hop bitterness. Nice.

A rather nice IPA. Pretty standard really. Actually, if i was to describe what an IPA should be like, this would be it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big nice IPA here -- glad that Pizza Port is making its way out east. Beautiful deep orange hue and well-hopped tongue feel. A little metallic bitterness towards the end mars just a bit an otherwise excellent IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Pours out a hazy orange color, with a sticky tan colored head. Aromas are hops all the way. Flavors are hops & caramel malts. Pretty standard West Coast IPA here.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
mind struggling far too hard to srt this, which is NOT the way I wish to approach beer. Doing this for Doug, the bastard gives me beer and expects me to drink it, I do and then here I am with this hpo monster that I like, but am not totally enraptured wth due to it being what many think an American IPA *should* be- ultra hop dominated with subdued malt. yeehaw and do indeed like it more and more every sip, so strike what ever negative value youo thought I was putting here.

A perfect IPA in my opinion 5+++ all the way. Exccellent use of differnet hops along with some new ones that add complexity, great use of the ABV and great use of malts. PERFECTION

A good IPA sure pours nice into a glass. Great color and frothy head. I love the aroma of a good IPA and this one is very good. Now, the strong, hoppy flavor I’m still learning to love, but I enjoyed this brew a lot.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear honey color with a medium eggshell head that is mostly lasting. The aroma is pretty much all hops: citrus and floral. The flavor is an explosion of hoppy bitterness. The citrus and floral are present as in the aroma, along with some pine in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full. This is an excellent IPA, too bad it is not sold locally.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22 oz bottle (thanks bmartinl!). Pours a hazy amber with a small head. Nose is citrus, floral, and fruity. Tastes like it smells with some pineapple and lots of resiny pine in the finish. Body is full, carbonation is average. Mmmm this is one tasty IPA, the best I have had in a long long time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Pours a golden copper color with a prominent white head. Aroma is a mixture of hoppy and flowery notes, with a bit of citrus as well. Taste is dominated by hops, but the flowery notes and citrus characteristics come in at the end to create a very balanced, nice IPA.
