3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Hop Devil Grill. Aroma of malt, a little citrus, a lot of pine / grassy hops. The flavor was real similar, malt and lots of pine / grassy hops. Pretty high level of bitterness, but not my favorite hop profile.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at Zeno’s. Color is yellow amber, sitting about 20% opaque. Nose is intensely grassy and dry, with some heavy notes of muddy, earthy yeast. Heavy and rich on the tongue up front, then quickly drying, with some creamed orange and melon flavors, and some dry ashy notes in the the long-lasting, dry and parches and scathing finish. Over time it starts to develop some burng olive and peanut oil notes, and the hops are so mangled and seem so thrown togethor, it just doesn’t come togethor as anything desirable. Messy, hugely hoppy but unclean and unpolished, aggressive when it needs not to be, and it relies entirely on high bitterness and not on any flavors that could have been extracted from the hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Which Brew. Cloudy orange body with nice head. Aroma is of citrus, piney. Flavor is very smooth with a nice citrus bite, subtle sweet malt. The flavor was not huge but enough to give it a nice little kick. Probably the best Legacy beer I ever had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Double IPA my foot. This product as I experienced it has more in common with an APA- weak and underwhelming in every regard. Alcohol is practically undetectable. $7/ 12 oz draft.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Orange with offwhite head. Big hoppy nose of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is thick, chewy hops, again pine and grapefruit, but nicely balanced, with a chalky malt sweetness throughout. Definitely a heavy hitter, a really nice big beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Snifter at Union Jack’s in Glenside. Deep, shiny metallic gold body with a clean, uniform white head. Aroma and flavor of grapefruit, light cattiness, and a crisp toasted malt edge. Lightly sweet with medium-high bitterness and a tea-like palate. A fair IPA, but not something I would go clamoring back for.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 At Union Jack’s in Glenside, PA. Deep, clear gold with a beige head. Grapefruit rind and caramel, some resin. Very dry and bitter grapefruit flavors over a mild caramel. Nice!
Re-rate, 28APR08 - bomber. Clear gold, big beige head. Excellent lace - looks like actual lace. Or something. Flavor is as noted above, very drinkable, hard to believe this is 9%. Good drinker.
