3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (May 2008), consumed a bit below cellar temperature from an Allagash glass. An enviable, amazingly persistent off-white large-bubbled head tops the medium-copper clear body, lacing thickly as it diminishes finally....spicy-sweet citric/piney aroma is typical and nothing out of the ordinary, but as with the "fall" Harvest Ale, outstandingly fresh and potent....the body could be a little fuller for me, but is hardly weak, and there’s enough to support the fairly potent increasing bitterness that slowly takes over for the early honey’d syrupyness....carbonation is persistent and just about perfect; the finish is sappy and moderately bitter, juicy and lasting. No masterpiece, but another winner for sure.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Aromas of sweet tropical fruits, caramel. Taste is citrus, pine, slight sourness. Finish is bitter marmalade. Was expecting a bit more, but it’s still quite solid.

Definitely for those who love bitter bitter hops. And I’m one of those. Floral, pine, grassy and a little citrus in there. Fairly heavy in the body with some sweet honey notes to offset the bitterness. Great one. Like

Good beer but it leaves a bitter after taste. Normally hop beers do, but this one is heavier aftertaste

Tap at BurgerMania in Ebisu. Amber with a thin off-white head. Honey and biscuits all over the nose with some pine and resin. Interesting spiced floral notes. Taste has some citrus, but seems muted by the malt. Bitter finish. Pretty underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Burgermania. Honey malt, biscuit, notes of orange and apricot, marmalade, herbal spice, light bitter finish. Quite odd, a bit too heavy and hops don’t shine very well unlike Hop Hunter or some of their solid hoppy brews.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Plonk. Perfect appearance - amber/red with creamy head. big hop aroma, lingering high bitterness - appropriate for style but a little much for me. A superb IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium amber color. The nose shows citrus with a bit of white wine though not too strong. Well balanced, medium body with slightly prickly hop character though the hops themselves don’t shine so much. Overall decent beer but doesn’t blow me away.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lost & Found Tastenotes: 2014 version: Aroma is on the fresher side with hops, citrus and grass. The taste starts out fine, with the maltbase a bit more prominent than I expected, hints of peaches, apricots and some slight citrus break through and helps to develop the aura. But the thing is when the aftertaste sets in, it becomes "only bitter" and no freshness is there anymore?
