Bottle courtesy of weeare138. Poured a medium golden color with a smaller sized white head (very weak looking). Aromas of flowers, soapy and citrus. Tastes of pretty much the same. Thinner body. I wasnít too crazy about this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazt dark straw with a lot of carbonation and tiny floaties. Aroma of resiny hops, bready malt, and some cobwebby esters. The taste was hoppy, with some citrus and bready malt. Medium palate that gets hoppier as it warms. Lacking in balance and complexity.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a yellow white head. Caramel and pine with some light citrus notes. To much caramel is all i am thinking, wheres the IBUís, a bit soapy and light stricken, tastes a bit like its been denatured. A poor ipa.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fairly light and enticing aroma. However, it lacks in flavor. This has no head and a light bright orange color. The aroma is caramel and a little citrus. The taste has dirt and a little bit of pine cleaner. Not a refreshing IPA. I see why I got this bottle as a present.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2004 March 02: Beautiful nose on this IPA; citrusy with maybe a touch of berries and peach; complexity needs at least a second try to evaluate. The flavor doesn't quite follow through -- typical IPA hoppiness but not overdone -- and the finish is awesomely smooth while retaining just enough crisp bitterness. I'll try it again. RE-RATE 3/16/02 found this a bit weaker and more watery; just less 'beer' in the beer all around. Is it me, or what? 7/4/6/3/14=3.4
April 2004: either this has just fallen off the earth, or I way overrated it before. There is some decent, pleasant grapefruit in the nose, but on the tongue it is just plain watery and bland, with minimal malts and just a bare hint of bitterness at the end, metallic and unpleasant. Just terrible.
