3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 200th IPA rating. Cloudy orange pour, thick white head. Nose hoppy-herbal and grassy, light pine and citrus, light toffee malts. Flavor is a little more on the malty side, hops are still there but not as vibrant as the nose. Bitter finish, but not much hop flavor going on here. Drinkable, but forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not the worst label I’ve ever seen, but it puts me in a mind of Christmas with the red and green candy stripe - and nothing says Christmas like a toad. The beer itself is cloudy and light brown. The aroma is a broadside assault of hops at first - as things settle down and warm there is lots of fresh pineapple, and the hops fade back into a supporting kat whizz role. Sweet (not too) and candied at times with lots of pineapple. The hops are really in a flavor and aroma role, and the brew is really not very bitter at all, until the end when it gets strongly bitter and perhaps a bit overbrewed tasting. Medium body, loses carbonation some. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared by turdferguson. Murky amber orange pour, floaties (bottom of bottle). One finger of off white head. Nose is resin heavy, lots of oily hop notes, light oxidation with bready notes and a citric quality. Lightly zesty quality to the flavor, otherwise the hop character is very resinous. Piney with a slightly papery quality. Not bad, needs some work but a great start.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s amber with a tiny head. Plenty of dandruff and floaties in the glass. The nose is full of caramel, sweetened orange peel, toast. The taste is more caramel, a bit of unripened melon. Moderately grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty middle of the road IPA.

Flavor is older bread crusts at first followed by fruit skins,some apricot, peach and mango and finishes with smoke bitter happiness. Drinkable

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with a fast-fading head. Nose smells leafy and a wee bit resinous with a small sweetness behind it. The flavor is strongly hopped with some leafy and grassy bitterness, a little pine, finishing with an amberish caramel tone. A little heavy on the leafy resin, otherwise kinda average and forgettable. Frankly, a little on the tame side, especially toward the end of the glass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at Max Lagers, 4/17/13
Aroma: The nose is citrus hops, some caramel and pale malts, and a hint of floral hop
Appearance: This one has a bright orange pour, a white head, and some fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose component-wise, mildly sweet and medium-plus bitter
Palate: The body is medium, the carbonation is average-plus, and it has a dry finish
I thought this one was solid enough, but not great, considering that I was drinking this right after the house "Hopsplosion!!!" draft, and I liked that one more...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap. Opaque (cloudiest IPA I’ve ever seen, and not the bottom of the keg, but I still think its a good sign) green-orange-toast color with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is very mild citrus and evergreen. Taste is a bit bolder with the evergreen, caramel and citrus. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is dry with lots of hop, but the taste is just so-so.

Extremely bitter, but not annoying neither tiring. Was very amber and had some very nice features too.
