3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is dank and earthy-herbal hops, pine-leaning with light malt and citrus, perhaps a touch of grain. Expecting it to be sweet. Dark chestnut with red highlights and a rocky tan head. Taste is strongly bitter, faint metal with some sour acid, though only a stroke. Juicy and citric but higher on resin and scratch, woody with floral and herbal notes that don’t manage to establish themselves until some time has passed. Fullish body, seems like lemon and orange juice have been squirted in at times (zing zing) but even they are covered by the strong dank resin and dark caramel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of hops, pine, caramel malt, slight tropical fruit, slight grapefruit, and a hint of honey. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Very good to excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of hops, pine, and caramel malt. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Hop and caramel malt finish is dry. Good, but basically an average IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 Tap at CAH. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of floral hops, honey and light caramel malt. Flavor of honey, some citrusy and floral hop notes and light bread character. Bitterness on lower end for an IPA. Could use the help of a heavy dose of some dry hopping. Not gonna compete with todays IPA’s.

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.

Kind of bland for me. Not a lot of aroma. What I got was a bit of citrus and some sweet malt. The flavor had a little too much sweetness for my liking.

Bottle from Canal’s. pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet honey, light cereal, some mild citrus hop and pine sap. Taste is interesting, lots of sweet, sticky honey blending with citrus bitterness that lingers on the finish. Like drinking liquid honey comb cereal garnished with hops. Definitely interesting.

Clear amber pour tan head .... sweet malty aroma and mouthfeel .... taste of honey and sweet malts with some citrusy hops .... a lingering hop taste ... the honey malt is a nice addition but the hops aren’t really there ...... hope the doctors are doing better than the beer
