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.

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.

Sampled on draft this beer poured a vibrant golden color with a very large yellow-white head. The aroma was strong piney and grapefruity hops. The flavor was piney and grapefruity hops with a light malty undertone. The hops coat the tongue and really linger.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capital Ale House - Innsbrook. Medium amber orange, nice head that threw a good lace. Aroma was pine and citrus. Flavor was the hop bomb I expected, caramel malts that bordered on gummy with a huge shock of citrus and pine. Perhaps not an inspired IIPA, but a well executed one that I enjoyed.

Sampled Hoptimus Prime @ Union Jack’s (Glenside) served appropriately in a goblet. Big, big 2XIPA with citrus, pine, even pineapple flavors complimenting a full bodied malt. This is an excellent offering from Legacy. Maybe it was a "fresh" keg or I haven’t had a 2XIPA in a while....Hoptimus Prime was a bullseye with me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at RFD. Clear, amber color with a nice thick head. Hops all over the place. Thick taste. Chewy as well. Some bitter hops, and you can kind of pick up the alcohol as well. Very good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at RFD. Pours a clear, yellowish-orange color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Pleasant, resiny hop aroma. Dense, chewy hop presence (citrus, floral) with some decent candy sugar maltiness; slightly dry, plasticy flavor. Medium, dry hop and citrus bitterness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Copper color with bitter hop nose. This beer has a toned down malt profile and a super charged bitter hop taste. The bitterness lingers in the back of throat. Massive lacing. one dimentional but still pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Capones. Pours deep golden with a large light tan head. Aroma of hops, citrus, pineapples, and caramel malts. The flavor is slightly sweet caramel and pineapples upfront, then the citrusy characteristics pop out, and finishes with a bitter dryness, very nice.
