3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12-oz bottle, bottled 062705. Pours orange to light copper with a thin white head that quickly becomes a patchy white film on top and near the edge. Fragrant floral sweet perfumey hop aroma with grassy notes and fruit (peach, pear, and orange) nose and lightly roasted malt (grain). Bitter floral hop sweet yet acidic then becomes dry and astringent with a citrusy rind end. Medium bodied dry and fizzy palate.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, light carmel, lemon rind and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of bread, straw, light carmel and a hint of citrus with a crisp lightly bitter finish. A very boring IPA!!!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Hazy, orange ale. Small, creamy, off white head.
Yeasty, alcoholic and floral nose with some hints of orange.
The flavor is malty and rich. Very well-hopped; citrusy and moderately bitter.
Medium-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, clean finish. English IPA.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this at the brewery. Again its a decent beer, just not my favorite style. Kind of watery and maybe a tad too much carbonation. Wouldnt drink it again usually.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light orange color, mild hop aroma of oranges and lemons, but with that unpleasent "lager" aroma of old grains. Very fizzy, and not having much flavor. If you make an IPA, make it at least a little bold, have some flavor. This one falls short.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold/amber colour. Quite hopy, as one might expect, but not as extreme as many US IPAs. The hops are herbal rather than the typical US sweet resin, so the beer comes over as quite dry. A pleasant drop. Cask, GBBF 2004.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark straw toward copper with off-white head. Nose is hoppy, resiny, with caramel malt. Tastes hoppy, resiny, malt-lacking, and not terribly complex or interesting. Not a horrible IPA, but among the high end of the lower tier, in my estimation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Old Glory in Georgetown. Pours a clear light amber with a thin, white head that leaves excellent sheets of lacing. Aroma is citrus hops, orange juice, grapefruit rind, and some floral hops. Taste is a bit citrusy but moves quickly to lots of cardboard. Dry, floral/potpourri finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
100ml from a bottle, 6.2% abv, at ØK ’13. Near-clear golden body. Spotty lacing. Fresh aroma of fruity hops. Blended taste of citrus fruits leading to a bitter ending of citrus peels. Medium bodied. Nice and refreshing (Copenhagen, 24.05.2013).
