3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cluttered ipa, some malt but mostly citrusy, no wood flavor form the apparent aging.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel. Pours a deep gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of malt and hops equally, quite resiny and floral. Flavour, which I like slightly more then the aroma, is nice and hoppy, fruity and citrusy. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small sample from a 22 oz. bottle. It pours a light gold color with a white head. The aroma has some stale grains, caramel and some light pine. Definitely seems like an old bottle. The flavor has some tangerine notes, pine and very light maltiness. The body is light and refreshing on the palate. The hops have been muted by age, but I imagine this wasn’t a very hoppy IPA to begin with.

2012-01-18. Crisp dark yellow orange body, off white head. 3+ Modest hoppy aroma is lightly grassy, interesting melange of fruit and hops, lightly floral. Flavour is similar, lightly grassy fruity hops, modest bitterness throughout. Interesting hop character. Smooth average bodied palate, relatively carbonated. 3+ Enjoyable, different hop character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from trade with Crajun. Pours a clear golden orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Faint aroma of orange and lemon citrus with some malt too. Taste is crisp and enjoyable. Fresh citrus taste, moderate bitterness, dry spicy finish. A slightly above average IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a trade with Errl! Thanks, Chris! Thought this would be pretty good but this really exceeded expectations. Huge fruity Juicy Fruit nose that faded to honey and floral hops but keep nice fruity notes. Clear, medium to full bodied light orange gold. Incredibly balanced flavors, not bitter, not malty sweet, just right. One of the best IPAs I’ve had all year.
