3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is nice. Lots of pine hop and a aroma simular to rye. Flavor is not as good as the aroma but there are some hint of hops and the malts come out more in the flavor. Not the best IPA by far. If the flavor was equal to the aroma this would be a winner.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle-thanks to vyvvy for this one. I didn’t think it was as bad as he did. however, this is just a run-of-the mill session ipa. clear orange with a small sudsy white head. big hoppy nose! fresh passionfruit, green, and lots of character. flavors are not as hoppy as i was expecting from the nose. fairly boring and one-dimensional hop flavor at the finish which became metallic after a few sips. somewhat muddled finish with no distinct flavors. not bad, but not great either.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours lightly hazy copper / orange with a small white head. The aroma has lots of floral hops & no malt to be detected. Medium body (lighter than normal for the style though) with fairly sharp carbonation. No malt on the taste, all hops - this needs some balance to it. The hops are all floral and fairly sharp tasting. Finish gets metallic. Too one dimensional for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to hopdog for the trade. Pours a hazy golden orange amber with an average off white creamy and bubbly head that left lacing and sustained. Aroma of sweet grapefruit, pine, various citrus. Very nice upfront hoppy aroma. Flavor of grapefruit, pine, some sweet maltiness hidden under a bunch of hop bitterness.

On tap at Govnor’s Pub Brew Daze ’06. Wow. Hops. Almost too hoppy, but drinkable and full of flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 12oz bottle. Bottle labeled Jan 11. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Tastes grapefruit, pine, and a touch of carame. Tastes, like the body, a little on the thin side. Very lightly bitter.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this one on draught at Brew Daze 2006. Without a doubt, one of the finest IPA’s out there. Light orangy-yellow pour with a fine head, very pronounced hoppiness, with roses and apple in the nose, and one of the most potent, overwhelming bitterness of hops. Finishes smooth and clean. Outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a small head; honey color. Very citrusy smell. Not much initial taste, but has a strong (but good) finish. Citrus, hops, and a lasting hoppy finish. A nice, lighter IPA.
