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.

3.4 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured clear deep gold with thin bright white head. It has a crisp hoppy aroma of tangelo to grapefruit with sweet malts in the background. Hey, this is a tasty IPA. I get a grapefruit hop bitterness mixed with floral hints. Behind that is a mild roasted maltiness or maybe even some rye that plays nicely against the hops.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is
clear dark yellow. Aroma is lightly hoppy (resin), moderately yeasty
(dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium
body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent.
Aromatically, it's overly yeasty and not really that hoppy. Flavor
balance is ok, but too citric for my tastes, and way too yeasty.
