1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
A - Pours a hazy golden amber with a rocky 2 finger white head that retains well. Nice blots of lacing.
S - Smells like an herbal evergreen forest with lots of floral ground cover. Some caramel malt and hints of astringent lemon as well as some dirty dish rag smell....maybe the yeast.
T - A train of herbal and evergreen hops creates a dry bitterness that scrapes your palate dry of everything. The caramel malt is mixed in but slowly shows up in the middle and progresses through to the aftertaste. Some doughy bread like characters try to come out. Finishes first like chewing on dry bitter herbs then switches to some bready flavors.
M - Light to medium.
This beer actually holds a special place in my heart. it was my first IPA back in I think 2001. I didnít care as much about beer as much back then but remember almost pouring it out. I had never thought of pouring any beer out before. I never forgot that name or that beer.
So I was excited to try it again after all these years and having more knowledge about IPAís.... It seemed to be as gross as the first time. Thereís a non-diluted medicine character about it that I just canít enjoy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It's an IPA. A mid-to-dark amber color, a hint of citrus as it's going down, and a favorable aftertaste. I would never complain if this were handed to me, but it might not be the beer I grab myself.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange with white head. Mellow aroma of citrus, some pine and some tropical fruit. Medium mouth feel and carbonation. Aftertaste is lingering citrus bitterness. Overall: itís okay. Lacks complexity and aroma.

Bottle. Deep golden with two finger head. Medium malt body with hoppy bitterness. Slight citrus. Eh. Needs more flavor beyond bitterness.

For the simple reason it is an IPA I judge this more harshly than it probably deserves. In a flooded market this one still good. A bitter citrus rind finish to a well balanced IPA. I have to say I prefer the aroma of this one to the taste. The sour stone fruit a hint of cheese and citrus is the beer I want to drink.
