2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: Deep amber-copper body with a huge yeasty haze throughout. Large, big-bubbled, foamy eggshell cap. Aroma hits with spicy hops up front. Peppery, floral, a bit ashy, undertones of grapefruit rind & citrus peel. Strong toasted bread & caramel malts linger in the background. Somewhat monotone. Flavor has a big white pepper & herbaceous bitterness that stings with each sip. Toned down citrus notes with a heavier accent on the leafy, grassiness. Still a touch of grapefruit pith in there, though. More caramel malt sweetness & a bit of residual sugar in the finish. Kind of has that "old" feel to it. Thick bodied, at least given the style & ABV. Decent at best.

Fresh bottle brought back from the source by Adam. Thanks mang!
The beer is copper with a substantial tan head. the aroma brings a lot of malt, light hop character, a touch of pine. Unadventurous and inconsequential on the palate. Mild hop presence, caramel / biscuit malt character, finishing dry. Nothing wrong here, but indistinguishable and boring. Light to medium in body with appropriate carbonation. Meh...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark copper and orange coloured body with a cloudy, very opaque look and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of earthy and floral hops, some pungent malt notes, a little bit of yeast and a solid fruit profile. Medium-bodied; Chewy malty flavour at first with earth and nuts noticeable, but a large and rather herbal hop taste rounds out the flavour. Aftertaste shows a subtle blend of sweetness from fruits and a drying hop character. Overall, a nice IPA that shows more of a non-traditional flair with more malt and sweetness than most others and especially the look - much more cloudy than most! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-March-2014.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Carbonation dissipates quickly, no lacing, but a beautiful orange color.
My first thought with aroma was grapefruit, and the first taste was hoppy with a citrus-y sweetness. This would go well with a light summer meal.
The lingering bitter finish is nice at first, but starts to become less pleasant after a bit.
This would be a great beer to have with a grilled chicken caesar salad on a warm day right before a round of golf. Not a beer to linger with while playing video games, which is where I’m at right now.
