4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 Draft sample at the brewpub. Medium amber color. Very floral, citrus hop nose. All hops all the way on this one. It not overpowering, infact, very well balanced start to finish. Very clean. Hints of oak throughout, but not overpowering. It compliments the hop character very well. Dig it. I dig it a lot. I’m a fan.
4/15/08 Needed a chance to re-rate this one. Pours orange/amber with an off-white head, great lacing, especially for a growler pour. Nose is flowery and citrus hops, sweet and sticky malt. Medium to full mouthfeel with good balance of caramel and toffee wit ha slight earthy taste and bit citrus and floral flavor. Lots of bitter towards the end, over taking the tastebuds in the finish and well into the after. It lingers for a while. Delicious. Very nice IPA.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Please ignore my numbers, I rate by how I enjoy them and I don’t care for hoppy IPA. You ask, then why did I taste? Well, because it was there. THis is as good example of an IPA that I have tasted, has all the good attributes. It is a little darker than you typical IPA, kinda orange brown. Bitter medicinal syrupy qualities coat the inside of your mouth. Like chewing on green grapefruit rinds? Give this a try, will not disappoint. Certainly a good example of an IPA. Finish is bitter lingering that lasts and lasts.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer pours a golden color with a small white head. There is a light flowery hop aroma. The flavor is moderately flowery and fruity hops and grows a bit dry on the finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught sample at brewery. Medium amber reddish body with thin foamy lacing head. Starts with big juicy hops, fresh with grapefruit and resin. Good sweet malt with light caramel and biscuit. Finish is a big bitter chomp, dry, with a lasting bitter coating to the tongue. Medium body with medium carbonation. Floral hops nose with fresh grapefruit oil and resin. Really nice balance and goes down a bit too easily. Very nice IPA. It’s a refreshing step back from the IIPAs that are showing up more and more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can’t complain about this one. A very tasty IPA. Similar to the IPA Andrew brewed at John Harvards not too long ago, but a bit better I thought. Maybe fuller bodied? Poured with a nice head, and a good amber color.
