3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
poured from a pt. into a pint glass.
Aroma: very distinctive floral fragrance to the nose. It doesn’t have much hop aroma, but it’s extremely clean.
Appearance: A clear amber color that seems a little to plain.
Taste: well mixed hop delight. It starts of with an earthy feel, kind of like you are at the end of a nice long hike, a clean florally middle and then this clean hoppy note just sticks in your palate, tasty....

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Golden hue, normal clarity with fully lasting white frothy head. Virtually no lacing. Sweer aroma, some wheat and light fruit. Light bitter hop with a sweet finish. I had a hard time with this one. Crisp on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Approximately 5 oz. pour from a rare 18.7 oz. bottle. Strawberry, caramel, and carob scents with some dryness in the smell. Pours a mostly clear, slightly hazy brass with a small amount of beige/taupe head. Caramel, lemon, and soda water flavors. Very British taste. Light to medium body. Frothy and undercarbonated in the palate. Not that good overall, unfortunately. Tastes more like an American amber ale than an American IPA (and of course it is not an American IPA).

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Carmel malt doughy aroma with a hint of citrus hops; golden color with a white head that thins out quickly, lacing and somewhat translucent; lightly sweet taste - I can’t really taste the hops at all; light bodied, average carbonation, not much of a finish. Nice taste - could definitely have more than one although it doesn’t really stand out as anything but a nice, drinkable ale.
