I canít remember if someone sent me this or not. If you did, please let me know and I will make the correction. Pours an average amber with a peach wine and grapefruiit aroma. Flavor is coppery apricot and grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. A bit on the light side, but fruit flavors somehow shine.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle thanks to douglas88. Pours golden with fluffy off-white head. The aroma is fruity, with orange, peach, tangerine, and a little bit of melon; there is a bit of honeylike malt also. The flavor begins with a decent punch of piney bitterness. Then comes the fruity character, which seems to be from both hops and malt. The finish is bitter, tannic, and herbal. Better than I was expecting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle
**Summary** - Compliments of Santa I cracked this one open while watching bowl games. One of the better IPAs that I have tried it strikes a great balance between the hops and malts. If I ever make it to Salt Lake City this will definitely be where I spend some time.
**Aroma / Appearance** - An orange liquid the color of cantelope produced a rich two finger head. Malty with the scent of freshly shined hardwood, the nose also radiated sweet fruity hops.
**Flavor / Palate** - Chewy without being cloying the sips crawl over the tongue and throat leaving a trail of peach and resin. The bitter finish is strong but not aggressive. Warming the palate this one was a great way to spend time on a lazy afternoon and would probably be just as good in the middle of summer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from IrishBoy. Deep gold with a thin tight white head. Aroma is a light piney hoppiness, with a faint soapiness, honey, and dried apricots. Taste is nice and piney, light earthiness, light alcohol, some apricots show. A little more hoppiness and this would be close to perfect.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Citrusy, earthy aroma provides grapefruit, evergreen bark and pale malts. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty well-balanced. Medium pine and grapefruit bitterness; low toffee and biscuit malt sweetness; very light acidity. Finishes with light toffee sweetness and fair, tannic bitterness. Well-put-together EPA! Thanks go out to Douglas88 for shipping the bottle to me!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear deep gold color with a good white head that lasted throughout and left nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and some hop bitterness. Flavor is more hops than malt, but still nicely balanced. Good hop bite on a quick finish. Slightly thin palate, but a refreshing and surprisingly good 6-pack IPA.
