Amber. Frothy tan cap. Pine resin, soap, good n plenty, soft caramel, a bit of spiciness. Balanced, medium palate. Very nice IPA.

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.

brewtopia 10/21/06, Resinous fresh hop aroma. Taste is fresh hops, some malt, good bitterness throughout the taste, decent IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Standard IPA look with a copper/orange body and a white foamy head. The hop profile was very bland for an IPA with a musty basement attribute that was not pleasant. There was a "stale" feel to this all around.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong hops and malt flavor, more than most IPAs. Definitely a bold flavor, which I normally like, but I found that I enjoyed it a little less the more I drank. Not bad by any means, maybe not the best overall flavor for me though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This started out nice, a clear amber body with a substantive off-white head. A sweet caramel aroma was capped by a healthy dose of the PNW, a solid grapefruit, zest of orange, and pine bitterness. The flavor begins with caramel and toffee, pursued by the hops, and then... Oddly a layer of dust invaded my drink, leaving a mustiness in the back of my mouth. Mis-handled bottle, perhaps? One to try again.
