3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
NITRO Draft at Khyber Pass. Copper red pour with a huge pillowy head which left rings of lace. Mild malt. Even milder hops. Clover honey. Caramel floral. Dark honey brown ale. Despite the nitro, the body seems watery. Looks nice but was a disappointment.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @Field House, Philly PA. Deep hazy amber with cascading carbonation the produced head like a nitro stout. Thick lacing. The nose has caramel malt sweetness forward with light citrus notes hiding beneath the malt. Flavor has citrus and floral hops upfront, leading into a sweet honey malt finish. Medium to full in body with a silky texture. Hopheads may think this is to malty but I really like what the brewer did here. Very tasty. I ordered two.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Varga Bar, Philly - 24/05/12.
Hazy orange colour with small off-white head.
Floral hoppy nose, sweet malt, and a little citrus on the nose.
Sweet citrus tastes, sweet malt and a definate chunk of honey in there.
Medium bodied, sweetish finish, no real bitterness. Not really an IPA in my book!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Prism. Amber pour with a soapy white head. Mild nose. Taste is an aggressive sweet honey and sharp floral hops. Interesting and quite good.

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.
