3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just a little too much on the hops here and not very well balanced. Copper colored. Big strong hop and citrus/grapefruit nose. Hop and citrus flavors. I' m usually not opposed to a strongly hopped beer but this one just failed to have any structure or balance (as I mentioned earlier).

Light floral hop nose. Unripe hop flavor with a medium finish...didn’t care for it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11/10/02: The nose has sweet floral and citrus tones surrounded by hoppy essence...Color is a pretty, clear honey-amber; the head is light but busy---speckled lace...This features a nice whole-hop presence that provides good, though fairly subdued flavor, while the malt adds light sweetness and body, especially in the mild finish...Body is medium-light and indeed feels a little thin for the style...Overall, this has good hop flavor and aroma, but lacks a degree of intensity that would boost this to higher station in the IPA universe.
