3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Repeal. Gold and copper. Aromas and flavors of floral european hops and yeast. Balance could use more malt but they are scarce. That makes for a thin offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with a frothy off-white head and nice lacing. Mild aroma of bready malt, grass and some caramel. The taste is mostly pale malts with a moderate spicy bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly dry. It seems like more of an unusually bitter bitter than an IPA to me. I guess in that regard, it would fit better under English Pale Ale here...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - deep gold, some head, lacing. Not exactly a hop bomb here. Seems too malty for an IPA. I guess thatís where the German style comes in. Medium body and a somewhat dry finish but forgettable for the most part.

Nice amber color with a nice hoppy bite. it's not an over the top hop flavor but moderate. Nothing outstanding but it was enjoyable .

Pours a beautiful golden color with a nice thick head. The flavor is more reminscent of a traditional english IPA than an american one. Nice subtle hop flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pretty gold color with a 2 finger head and good lace. Weird aroma of creamed corn and floral hops. Flavor is a bit flat, bready malt with slightly astringent hoppiness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. An amber color and a white foamy head with lots of lacing. Thereís a faint aroma of hops with a bit of citrus. The flavor is very hop-forward with a citrusy hop flavor lasting all through the flavor with a long aftertaste, but not much else going on. An easy to drink IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle courtesy of blankboy. Clear amber, nice and bubbly, with a large diminishing frothy-fizzy off-white head. I get virtually no aroma - weird!! Taste - leafy, oddly roasty, bitter - quite bitter - but the only character I get is scorched grass ... a bit of alcohol too. Average body, astringent, undercarbonated, a bit harsh in the finish. Not really digging it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very dark straw body with a thin ring of bubbles. Looks like malt liquor. Nose-stale hops, soda water. Taste-bitter and fizzy like Alka-Seltzer. Tingly, bitter, chalky, soil. Very little hops in this IPA. The only hop influence is in the bitterness. Just too much like soda water to enjoy. Some flavor hops come through in the finish but it isnít near enough to save it.
