3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Varga Bar, Philly. Deep orange pour, glowing bright in the chalice, and a nice carbonation enhanced the appeal. Soft floral hops are definitely abetted by the honey in the aroma, almost like a hoppy mini-mead except the honey’s too understated I suppose. Light carbonation, some more grass in the taste. Well balanced and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy orange. Light honey with solid bitterness. Good beer and not as honey forward as unthought it would be.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Redstone. Pours a dark copper color with minimal head and creamy lacing. Heavy aromas of caramel malt, honey, pine. Taste is sweet honey with a bitter hop finish. Leaves the mouth slightly dry. Not something I will search out but more then happy to give it a whirl at a chain restaurant.

Brown color with some honey in the aroma and dominating the palatte with a bitter edge which seems out of sync with the honey but this is a honey ipa so lets go with this. Once the beer warmed up i was able to appreciate the honey ipa mix more. Sweetness with a bitter edge sums it up for me with rather medium wet mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is light, but has a bit of hops and honey. Sweet start building to a bitter finish. Caramel like malt, a touch of darker honey, then a floral hops end. Interesting, but not a standout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, honey, grass, and toast. Taste of citrus, grass, light toffee, honey, and a lightly bitter finish.

Sampled during McCoole’s Spring Beer Fest in Quakertown, PA. Nice interpretation of the IPA. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
had on-tap at the Tex-Mex. Nice to see restaurant supporting local breweries.
appears a darker copper amber color, with nice white head. The cap of head covers the beer until the very end.
aroma is pretty sweet, dominated by the honey. Taste follows similarly, with a fairly sweet flavors of malt and honey. The hops are subtle. Mouthfeel is very smooth, with lower carbonation that definitely works.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber and has aroma of florals, caramel and honey. Taste is sweet with a honey aftertaste. For some reason this beer left a terrible aftertaste, almost funky but in a bad way.
