2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
An average IPA. Dominated by its stickiness and the film it left in my mouth after every drink. Not a bad brew, tasted like a mellow version of Alpha King, but had the texture and property of grape juice (drys the mouth, leaves a sticky film).

Somehow a local grocer had a growler of this sitting in a display. Pour is a very cloudy yellow. Big points for the beer actually looking like melted yellow snow. Nice head that dissipates into a ring. Aroma is nice citrus hops. Lots of fruity hops in the taste and really a nice flavor, not too offensive. Flavor doesn’t last very long. Nice lacing. A solid brew.

Beautiful head on this one. Great blend of hops, and moderately bitter finish. Nice flavor, and finish to boot. Clean and crisp.

Bottle: Pale golden pour with a big off-white head. Huge amounts of lacing. Hoppy nose of citrus and fruit. Tastes of bigtime hops with citrus and pine. Sweet fruity and a tiny amount of malt. Bitters linger quite a bit. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is an orange with a average white head. Aroma is a decent pine hop. Flavor is again lots of pine hops with a strong sweet malt in the backround. An average IPA. Not that that is a bad thing(this is better than many) but nothing in this one to put it over the top into an excellent category.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
-golden yellow with mild white head. Spicy hop nose. Mild malt flavor, probably could be an improvement, but the contrast between the appearance and the strength of flavor is a nice contrast. The hop flavor is tremendous, a very piney and powerful presence. One of the best rogue beers I have had, a good version of an ipa

Sample at the holiday beer tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 11/13/08. This beer is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, apricot and malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and a touch of sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
