2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is big and impressive with citrus, pine, and grassy hops. The malts are caramel like and give good balance. The appearance is amber with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma to a point but mostly astringent. The palate is thin. Overall this is such a waste. It is one great smelling beer that got my hopes up to them dash them.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bonus bottle from adamjackson. Poured a slightly hazed orange/amber with an average at best foamy white head that fades slowly. Aroma is of sweet tropical fruit pulp and some rind along with malts peach and apricot skins wet toast and old hops. The body has a fuller slightly milky feel and very light carbonation. Flavor is older bread crusts at first followed by fruit skins,some apricot, peach and mango and finishes with smoke bitter happiness. Drinkable

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle from Ale Yeah. Starts with a nice aroma of hops and resin then is followed by too much toffee caramel for the IPA I like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of lightly floral and light pine hops, pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not really a standout IPA.

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.

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 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy, amber-brown with a thin, off-white head.
Aroma of wood, slight orange peel...
Taste is earthy hops, caramel, a bit of fruit.
Very mild....decent, but really no punch or distinctive traits.

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 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured an amber color with aromas of floral hops, light bread, some pine and light caramel. Flavors follow suit nothing out of this world but basic and decent.

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.
