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.

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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a smaller off white head. The aroma is mainly citrus hops, but they are not very prominent. The flavor has sweet malt, flowery hops, and orange peel. The flavor is not strong enough to be included with the IPAs. Not bad but not special.

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.

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.
