Draft from the tasting room. Pours medium orange with sharp spice and lemon peel notes and British malts. Not what I expected. Not sure what’s "X" about it. Not bad but meh.

Poured a amber color. Smelled kinda like straw with a fruity presence, not citrus fruit, but sweet indistinguishable fruitiness. Not the worst.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich orange and copper coloured body with a large, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of strong grapefruit, resiny and piney hops with a lot of bitterness, a touch of malt and some good floral notes. Medium-bodied; Assertive bitterness with a large dose of flowers and spicy yeastiness with the large hop flavour that you’d expect, coming from perfumey and piney hops. Aftertaste shows a good deal of bitterness, some malt backbone with a smooth flavour and a large alcohol bite at the end. Overall, a nice and flavourful beer that has a touch of a hop bitterness, but shows a good range of flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased yesterday at New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 01-November-2013 for US$2.25 sampled in my hotel room here in New York a day later on 02-November-2013.

Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head and tons of floaties. Aroma is a very nice earthy pine hop. Flavor is a nice mix of fresh pine hop with some honey malt. Finish has a bit of sweet herbal essence. This is a hoppy IPA

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy deep golden-orange with a small white head. Aroma of hops, floral, earthy and spicy, somewhat stale, some fruitiness and a bit of malt. Sweet malt flavor, a bit caramelly, fruity, with slightly stale hops, a bit citric, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. OK but probably better when fresh (this one’s 5 months old).

Hazy copper with a big foamy head. Aroma of earthy and spicy English hops and a nice malt background. Taste hoppy and earthy, some fruit, malt background balances the hops nicely and slight more to the malty side than typical American IPAs. Very nicely done beer.
