4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really enjoyed this beer. It has a nice orange glow and the first taste is what I would expect (The bartender had mentioned that it was fairly bitter).
I liked the finish as it was clean and fruity. These are all characteristics that I look for in an IPA so overall a great choice.

Tap. Poured a copper amber. Nose is sweet,hoppy with a touch of malt. Well balanced ipa with some sweet hop notes and a boat load of malt balancing it out. Solid bitterness runs through to the finish. Nice session ipa.

Aroma: Melon, peach, resin, pine, crystal malt, floral notes
Appearance: Hazy orange, white head, lots of white lace
Flavor: Bread and crystal malts with a crisp, floral, hoppy, bitter finish
Palate: Mouthfeel is dry, medium body, finish is very crisp
I’m knocking off stuff I can’t believe I haven’t rated before tonight, not intentionally, but that what they’ve got... This is a good IPA. I like the pronounced, crisp finish, it works well here.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This IPA pours a dark golden color with a very generous and soft white head. The nose lends a ton of hops, with earth, yeast and caramel malt mixed in. The body is extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors are very well balanced and delicious, with notes of dry citrus, earth, pine, light yeast and malts.

(Old BA rate - tap)
Poured with a good finger worth of slightly off-white, frothy head. Hazy copper-brown color, and had nice lacing in sample. Citrusy-grapefruit hop aroma with excellent malt sweentess. Grapefruity hops right up front that continue nicely throughout the sample that are backed up with a bready malt sweetness. Medium MF, which is close to a bit creamy and viscous with very light carbonation. Really easy to drink given the balance. Great stuff

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rattle N’ Hum in NYC. Light amber pour, fair sized white head. Aroma is mostly floral and citrus hop, with a touch of wood and pine as well. Flavor is much of the same; very tasty overall. Wish I could do a better rating as this was a tasty IPA, but it was a few days ago. Nice brew overall; go by the numbers.

Kinda ordinary. Not bad at all, but nothing super memorable. a bit more dark malt than usual. Has anyone graphed the last decade in indepents/beer brands?

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Hop dryness, malty sweetness and flavor, smooth finish, good beer.
A Nice start to my blind tiger experience - name fit, I like ipas so had to do it.
Not much head or carbonation, but looks are so much less important shen the personality is there - truthful for beer not everything else
