Better than average IPA. Try it if you have a chance. Not as hoppy as I thought it would be, but not a problem.

Dark amber; Earthy, hoppy aroma with slight solvent, marmalade and mint. Moderate, woody, herbal bitterness. Slight astringency. Malts are of toasted caramel. Sweetish, minty finish. This has some style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottled at only 6% ABV] The aroma is fresh, sweet, and malty. The color is a hazy orange and it has a small dense head. The flavor starts slightly bitter turning OK sweet from an OK malt blend. The end is more dty than bitter but it still has a slight grassy note from the hops. A quite nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:Light fruity apricot/peach,orange, & carmel. Classic clear copper color. Little head disappeared quickly. Toasted malt & citrus-orange- hops. Creamy, slightly syrupy. Dry, disappeared quickly. Not bad, but lost some points on quick finish. I'm doubtful of 7.5% claim, though my bottle had no indication.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, brown with a really nice ruby hue to it. Had a thing white head that didn't last long. Good mix of hops and malt. A nice IPA, but probably won't become my usual.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Nice ruby-brown color with decent white head. aroma of dark sweet malt and some flowery hops. Taste: Starts sweet and malty (caramel, dried apricot). I was expecting more hops. Dry, nutty and bready finish.

Decent, deserves to be called an IPA but barely. No major complaints - average
