3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
clear amber with a very slight cherry tainted white lacey head of tiny bubbs...semi-sweet hop aroma that dies rather quickly..clean and balanced profile with a weak hoppy foreground..tangy sweet citrus notes..almost too balanced for an IPA...stays rather refreshing and clean though...so Shibby.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Orange/Yellow color with a nice white head that lasted most the glass. The lacing was beautiful. Lasted the etire glass and was great to look at. I even showed my non-beer drinking friend that this was a great example of what we call lacing. He didn’t really care. Aromas were mostly grapefruity hoppiness with a touch of pine. Flavors were a little stonger, but mostly just typical IPA. The mouthfeel was a little less viscous than most IPAs that I have enjoyed, a little watered down, but overall the beer was very good.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 On draft at brewpub. Clear, golden amber color with a creamy off-white head that lasts well with good lacing. Mild aroma, citrus hoppines predominates. Sweet malty backbone, nice citrus hops and a tangy grapefruit finish. Medium body, creamy and smooth.

Normal washy dry leaf color to it. Nice head. Mod aroma of pine. Decent pine in the body and it really just follow the norm for IPA's and really isnt too powerful or too weak, Nice and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draft: San Diego Brewing Company in San Diego, CA) A fairly straightforward IPA, hoppy, moderately bitter, with a somewhat balancing malt backbone. Mildly aromatic nose of hops and a bit of light malt. Fairly clean palate with medium body. Medium gold in color, topped initially by a sizeable head that soon fades to a halo. Good, drinkable, if unremarkable IPA.

Draft: Amber color, nose is citrusy with cascade, a bit of caramel. The flavor is bittersweet, balanced with pronounced hops. A bit light in umamai and body, but decent. Finishes mellow, characterless.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours clear gold with a small white head. More malty than hoppy, with a sour taste. It got better as you drank it, but it still had a very odd taste up front. Maybe the taps were dirty.
