3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big, white head, translucent gold. Aroma is a tart apple, maybe a little citrus. Flavor is dry and bitter. Not bad, but not a great IPA

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cheerful orange color with a bright white head. Medium sized bubbles. Smells like soft, fuzzy flowers. Bury your head in a bank of petunias and that's this beer. A little ragged 'round the edges. Mild, mild, mild. This is not an aggressive beer. A bit of caramel malt and the hops end almost flat. I admit that hops don't thrill me. Their unobtrusiveness in this beer makes it somewhat more appealing for me.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber color. Not convincing aroma: light paper, apricots. Dry body, with an evident bitterness but not enough hop aroma. Poor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. VERY fruity aroma. Flavor is very fruity, almost like pineapple. This is my second single-hop IPA and this one just needs a little something extra. Still a nice effort.

deep apricot orange-golden; the creamy head 'stays real' and hangs out. waiting... not a huge aroma: clover honey and orange juice that has soaked into and soddened a newspaper, yellow fruits and pine. a pleasant caramel note shows that the malts are not to be ignored. sweetness and bitterness are about equal on impact, but of course the hops linger, waiting... for what , the chicks to show up? overall, it's a mild ipa. if this is the india-- or 'amped' --pale ale, i would guess that their regular pale is pallid indeed. big, biting, oak and quinine fuggles? i'm still waiting...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange/brown apperance. Aroma is hoppy with a slight fruitiness. Taste is of piney hops, with some fruit character coming through, fairly dry.

So I don't remember what I typed the first time, but "The Man" said it wasn't long enough to post. Well, screw "The Man" I'll post a rant against him to make this 75 frakin characters. How do you like that, Mr Man!
Oh, my buddy reminded me what I said about this beer. It was Hopppy, but not as much as Hop devil. Good though. How do you like that, Mr Man, you can't keep me down!!!!!!!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 Beautiful, light amber/orange ale.
Huge, rocky, white head. Spider web lacework.
The nose is malty and fruity with notes of orange blossom honey. A combination of apple and pear, caramel and cologne.
Flavor is well-balanced, but nondescript. Some notes of caramel and citrus fruit. Astringent on the backside. Not very bitter. Light-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. A bit watery and thin. Lengthy, fairly bitter, dry finish.

Tap. Nice hop aroma. Light copper color with lasting head. Dominating hops over malt, and flavors fill the palate. Pleasant, but nothing worth going too far out of your way for.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale orange. Large white bubbles but not much head overall. Pure hop aroma. Smells exactly like fresh hops about to be thrown into the brew kettle. Flavor is more malty then the aroma suggests. Hops are rather subdued actual. Medium bitterness. Dry medium body.
