3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle into frosted ale glass. Thin head. Promising aroma of fragrant hops. Flavor is OK with pine hops, though taste doesn’t match the strength of the aroma. Moderate for an IPA, but good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 35,5 CL at Bruuveri. Pours hazy yellow with big frothy white head. Notes of floral, citrus, malts. Pretty dry stuff. Not too balanced seems a bit bland.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a bottle at McCormick and Schmick’s on Wacker Drive, Chicago. Golden colour and strong white head. Good citrus hop aromas, and a taste balanced between biscuity malts and mildly grapefruity hops. The taste is a little bland, with a slightly discordant dry bitterness. I would like a stronger hop presence in the taste here, but not a bad beer.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Call it a pale ale and i’ll give you half a point more. Malty not much hops. Average beer with a light hop bill. Nice lasting head. Malty but not sweet. This isn’t as bad as you would think by rating. But for an ipa pretty horrible with light aroma and light hop.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a hazy bright orange colour with small white head and lots of floaties. Aroma is fruity with citric and floral hops as well as biscuity and caramel maltiness. Flavour has some nice tropical fruity and floral hoppiness and a solid biscuity malt presence as well as a little sweetish caramel. Carbonation relatively gentle. Goes down easy but has a little character.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium thick head, very smooth with a big fruity aroma and mild hoppy flavours with a lingering bitterness, not as hoppy as I’d expected for an IPA, must be the dry hopping. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Subtle hop aroma, absolutely no head, no lacing. Didn’t care much for the taste. Many better options available, wouldn’t suggest.
