4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, slightly cloudy medium copper with a lasting white head. Aroma is a mixture of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is packed with hops. Slightly astringent but not overly bitter. The citrus bite from the hops really comes through in each sip. A very nice example of the style. Would pair well with spicy Mexican or southwest dishes.
Rating #600: I had to pick a local brew for this milestone.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks a ruddy orange-brown, think attractive head that withers after a minute but leaves a trace of lacing. Slight hop and biscuit aromas. Nice mix of bitter and sweet flavor, with a suggestion of citrus that is realized toward the back palate as a pleasant tinge of orange. Could have used more hops though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy amber/orange color, off white head with lacing. Some vegeetal hops on the nose. Musty hop flavor, some pine and grapefruit. A pretty solid effort, not mind blowing but pretty decent.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours an orangish gold with a massive head and aromas of herbal hops, citrus and dish soap. Flavor is astringent and soapy with little redeeming to offer the world.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The nose is floral and peppery hops. The malt was a bit of a suprise. Definite honey to the fairly assertive malt flavor. The finish is a slightly astringent bitterness. This is a real IPA. Surprisingly aggressive beer from Red Brick.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a gently hazed, light copper-hued body with a growing, lasting, off-white head. Quality lacework on the descent.
Smell: Strongly floral hops, but also an infusion of citrus and a mite bit earthy over a basic, simplistic base of bready malts.
Taste: Lightly bready malts with a small, small nibble of golden syrup sweetness. Notably floral hops with sips of lemon and white grapefruit juices and a light telltale earthiness. Moderately bitter. Juicy, floral on the bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not quite as expressive as Sweetwater’s IPA, but it’s fairly decent.

Bottle shared by Blake. This was a very nice surprise at the end of the night. Good hoppy floral aroma with possibly a little bit of sweet honey in the mix. Smooth and well balanced. Not too shabby.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. Aroma of floral and pine hops with some light malts. Flavor of citrus and pine hops with light sweet malts. Quite bitter. Not too bad, hopefully it will be refined over the years.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Orange color. Loads of floaties make it a bit un-appealing Aroma of hops; simple pine. Malt scent is a simple caramel. Tastes of very bitter hops, distant malt. Not great.
