3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewer - Pours a hazy golden color with smallish white head. Aroma has a fair amount of citrusy hops and a touch of slightly toasty malt. Flavor is fairly hoppy, with citrusy, lemony hops, with a touch of malt backbone and caramel notes. Finish is fairly bitter but smooth and not overpowering. This is a decent IPA overall, but in a world of craft beer that is flooded with good IPAs, this is just in the middle of the pack somewhere. Iíve definitely had worse, but Iíve had better as well.

thanks to Sean for this 12oz bottle... bright medium gold, nice white head, good retention and lacing... nose is a little light and subtle but really nice, reminds me of a Columbus IPA, nice dank notes throughout... the taste is mostly dank, a bit too dank with a touch of alcohol, but really good, one of their best beers

Much more bitter than I was expecting from an ipa. Subtle hop aroma; good cloudy golden color. Pleasant aftertaste. Extra point for the potential for "sessioness."

12 ounce bottle pours a hazy orange with the aroma of grapefruit and hops. This highly carbonated brew tasted an up front cirtus flavor, mainly grapefruit with a huge bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a sampler glass at a local beer tasting party. The color was golden, with decent, white head foam and wavy lacing . The aroma was sharp, astrigent, pine & resin, with some equally potent, white grapefruit, and enough malt to keep some control, but not nearly enough. A light to medium bodied good shock to the tonsils.

Citrusy, piney aromas. Hoppy citrus flavors with a malt backbone to round it out. Overall it is a very very good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at MDL in Overland Park, Kansas. Brewed with love on 05 03 2011. Pour is a lightly hazed golden with a frothy two inch white head. Aroma is catty resin, grass, slight floral and a toasty malt. Taste is the resin cattiness right away, turning to a bitter citrus peel, than a bunch of the earthy grass finishing with a thinner toasted malt. Palate is medium to thin bodied, chewy mouth feel, and the dry bitter finish. Started nice, though I was hoping for a bit more body and flavor to the finish. Regardless, nice beer.
