1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Alla Spina. Description ready "lightly smoked IPA"...very misleading. Nose of smoked meats, tobacco, menthol ciagrettes, mint flavored Skol. The only hops I picked up were herbal which I suppose is a good paring for the smoke. This is a smoked beer which might pair well with certain foods but on its own was very off putting. I could not finish this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from Whole Foods. This is a smoked pale ale, a little thin but good. Campfire smoke and snappy hops make for a very interesting brew.

Poured at Sixpoint tasting at Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room. Poured amber/golden in color with a small white head. The smokiness comes right through with hints of wood, malt and hops.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Pours a full haze orange. Spotty lacing. Nose is thick bacon and rich smoke. Savory and dense. Taste is a bit medicinal, astringent, bitter, some plastic. A bit harsh with plastic, walnut shell bitterness and fatty meat. Not bad. Chemical back end.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Associated Supermarket, Bushwick, NY growler station ($9.69): Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is floral, smoky, with a hint of citrus. Taste is a combination of smoke and a moderate level of hops. The smokiness is done right, as it is neither too light or too heavy. This is somewhat sweet. "tis very drinkable and I jsut like smoke as a whole.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed while waiting in line at Fette Sau in Brooklyn. The beer appears a hazy, copper orange color. The aroma offers smoke and hops - an odd marriage, even done well. An IPA with a bit of smoke in the finish. A creative endeavor, but perhaps an overwhelming task.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at Dash In (Feb 18, 2012) - This beer should probably be listed as a smoked beer style. Anyway, it pours a hazy, honey color and has a good smoky aroma. The flavor is really dominated by the smoke, almost German rauchbier like, with a sweet malt background and a little hops bitterness. It’s medium bodied and has a dry, lingering smoky finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Hazy orange-amber body. Moderate sized white head, faint skim left on the glass.
S: Yup, there is some smoke here... but not as much as I was expecting. Lemon-citric and grassy hops over top a soft malty body.
T: The smoke is a bit more amped up, but not so much so that it drowns out the hops. Nice lemon-grassy hops.
M: Medium bodied, appropriately carbonated, mild bitterness, a blt slick in the finish.
O: I was pleasantly surprised by the balance between the smoke and hops that actually worked decently well.
