3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden amber color with copper colored edges and a one finger white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with sporadic streaks and spots of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy floral hop aroma with juicy buds and earthy resins countered by sweet tropical/citrus fruit and a sweet caramel malt backbone. Fresh cut grass, kind buds and sticky resins countered by some grapefruit, pineapple and citrus rind. Incredibly fresh and dank smelling. Sweet malt backbone with caramel, bread, biscuit and toffee. Great freh hop presence in the nose.
Full body with a blast of dry, earthy bitterness thatís countered by sweet tropical fruit hop notes and a prominent caramel malt backbone. Dry and sticky wih earthy resins, grassy pine and spruce tip but the strong malt backbone comes in mid palate to balance things out. Tart grapefruit along with some orange zest and faint citrus. Caramel and toffee sweetness with biscuit and dark bread. Malt is a bit stronger than I prefer but itís nicely balanced and easy to drink with decent hop character.

A moderate citrus and pine aroma. Light hazy copper body with a respectable half inch head on top. Has a nice bitter bite with light fruit sweetness to balance it out. Leaves light sweet fruit in the finish. Very enjoyable IPA.

Very smooth. Good hop and malt balance. A good solid IPA but nothing that separates it fro the enormous pack.

Pours a clear golden color with a whiye head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, bread, and a little skunk. Heavy and bubbly palate. Flavor is the same. Very fresh hops and citrus come through. Leaves a nice citrus hop finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, from the great Central Texas Bonfire Chicago Area IPA Taste-Off. Pours deep amber-orange with a high, foamy, lacy, off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, lime, lavender, and just a touch of smoke. Sweet on the very front of the tongue, then with some bitterness; the sweet returns, with stone fruit and honey and a little bit of smoke. I donít know why, but this beer makes me think of really good waffles. Finish goes completely dry and extremely bitter, with mouth-parching astringency. Nummy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can poured into tulip. Copper colored, no head to mention, aroma of the predominant hops. Spectacularly ugly graphics on the can. This is a very hop forward brew, with whatever malt is present (the beer part) overwhelmed almost completely by the bitter part, the all to usual American IPA story. Not citrusy either nor fruity, it is a mildly carbonated hop broth, served chilled. Not complaining, as I like the style, but there appear to be thousands of clones available these days. This is a decent one, and quite drinkable. Digging the Turboninjaís comments below, where he seems to like this brew, but rates it a .5! Counting error?
