UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Nice hoppy aoma, but a little faint. Taste is pinier and less sweet than I might have liked, but an altogether decent product at $2/12oz

Tremendous IPA. Had this in the woods out of the variety pack and was impressed with all of the ST beers, not the least of which was this one.

12oz bottle poured orange in color with a small off white head. The aroma was sweet with caramel and citrus hops. Taste was hoppy with alot of caramel malt and a lingering hop finish. Full of hops and malts with a nice balance.

Bottle poured into a plastic cup while camping near the southern tier of New York. Sweet smell and decent body. Good flavor that is very hoppy but not as well balanced as I expected. Good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange-Amber pour. Thin white head with minimal lace. Not as much hop presence as I would like like in an IPA. Nice mouth feel with lingering bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a dark copper with the barest fizzle of a head. Very perfumey, soapy aroma ... and it delivers in the first swallow, delivering almost a detergent-like flourish. The more you drink, it turns into more of a flower-hoppiness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A 12oz bottle. An orange amber pour with lite head and a sticky slight lace. An aroma of big hops and sweet malt. A flavor that is balanced the way I like it. The malt is there but the hops grab it by the ass quickly and show whos boss. A really good beer that continues to impress as the bottle goes down.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice beer. A bit too carbonated though. Excellent Flavor. Citrus and a hint of pine. Wonderful aroma. A top IPA.
