3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botle pours a deep golden orange. Nice yellowish sandy colored head. Nice malt and hop medley going on in the aroma. Distinguishable if not powerful citrus and piney hop notes. Modest malt backbone, but does fine as a hop carrier. fair carbonation and a moderate lingering bitterness. Still wish for more hops up front.

Bottle->tulip: pours a large, rocky, off-white head that exhibits spare lacing atop a murky, orange body. Aroma of cookie, perfume, and leather. The body is medium, texture sticky, with average carbonation, finishing chalkily. The flavor’s duration is long, being moderately acidic and bitter.

How the hell have I not rated this yet? A fabulous IPA in my opinion, and readily available in my area...even better! Beautiful golden color with a frothy white head that lasts throughout the entire glass. Aroma is citric and peppery, loaded with crisp hops. Lots of pine needle and sap in the flavor, well-balanced with the malt content underneath. Finishes dry, clean, and refreshing. I could drink this all day long. Yum!

I can see it’s quite popular but just didn’t do it for me. Our friends over the pond do some brilliant IPA’s but in my opinion this wasn’t one of them. Strong hop aroma with citrus thrown in. Similar flavour, dry finish. Far from anything wrong with it, just not for me.

12oz bottle 7/14/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a medium amber with a big loose off white head. Aroma of hops, pine, and malt. Taste of the same with some dryness and citrus thrown in. This medium bodied brew is very well balanced and quite refreshing. Great job.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear bronze with a dense and sudsy tan head. The aroma has lots of hops (earthy, piny and good amount of citrus) with some toasted malt. It is very hop heavy, but there is still a bit of balance. Medium rough grainy body with some semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with what’s in the aroma and is much more hop forward and contains lots of dry grapefruit and some tangerine. The finish is hoppy and very dry. Great enjoyable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tall off-white head sits above this clear, deep golden orange brew.
Fragrant and perfumy, clean citrus and fruit aroma.
The flavor is well balanced with a bitter finish.
