3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Raleigh Times. Bartender told me that this was a fairly tame IPA so I was surprised when the nose on this thing was extremely rich with citrus hops and floral notes. Taste was perfectly balanced for my style of IPA drinking. Hops were very strong, yet not in an overly aggressive way. Drank strong and finished strong too. Classy brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piny, floral hop aroma. A little citrus and musk but not to over powering. Dark, clear, golden orange, beautifully carbonated, thin head with persistent bubbles.
There is a very sharp hop flavor up front, but then it mellows in to a smooth bitterness. Itís rather refreshing. I get a lot of citrus, it has a nice dry finish.
Very lovely, drinkable beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear orange with a one finger creamy yellow white head, eventually fading to a thick film. Fruity citrus and green hops up front with some light dankness, and light cotton candy caramel malts behind. Flavor is more dank but still has the citrus, and the malts turn slightly earthy. Distantly reminds me of Blind Pig. . . distantly. Dry finish with bitterness @ a 6. Light carbonation with a medium body. Holy crap, I found a Ska beer that isnít only drinkable, but good! I know they sell it in cans, whi is also pretty cool--dunno if they date said cans, so I canít give it a bonus point yet.

12 oz can Pours a nice amber with a large off white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, hops. Flavor is citrusy hops, grapefruit, caramel malts. Nice to have another good canned IPA out there. Not as good as Furious Cans, but nice for price.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle at Front Range BBQ in Colorado Springs) Pours a clear, copper color. Small, white head that quickly diminishes. Floral hop aroma. Light floral hop and grainy malt flavor. Slick texture, soft carbonation, average duration. Light, bitter finish. I had this beer on tap on another occasion and the hop aroma and flavor was much more prevalent than from the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear orange, with a two-finger beige head, big bubbles, very good and lasting lacing. Pine, grapefruit, caramel, biscuit aroma, with an estery fruit undertone. Medium body, very dry. Doesnít taste as malty as the aroma indicates but very hoppy, some lightly toasted biscuit and grapefruit, with a strong bitter, grassy finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can was a bit off-putting at first. Pour into a glass with a thick white head that stuck with it. Floral hops all over the place. Piney and almost smoky or earthy. Hops isnít quite as heavy on the palate as the aroma led me to expect, but most definitely a hoppy beer. Fairly well carbonated. Hides the 7% alcohol pretty well. Overall pretty damn good brew.
