4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great IPA. Starts with citrus, grapefruit moving toward a pine nut finish. Very clean and drinkable but also traditionally hoppy; nearly perfect balance between tart/bitter to clean/sweet. Alcohol is subtle and in the background.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Floral, orange and light grapefruit. Light sweet malt flavor. Light palate works well with the floral dominance. Lingering citrus hop resin on the tongue. Excellent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Eddie McStiff’s. This is really enjoyable for an English style Ipa. It’s clean and plenty hoppy without any weird off flavors. There are notes of wood, grass and tangerine. Malts are bready, yeast adds a subdued fruitiness. The finish is semi-dry and not so lingering. Not a bad brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Nose is very pleasant citrus/herbal hops, mellow but very pleasant over a biscuity malt base. Taste is the same--orange marmalade on lightly toasted bread. The same citrus/herbal hops on the finish, mild bitterness and smooth malt. Smooth, with a fairly heavy body. Wow, this one snuck up on me--it’s awesome.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange amber color out of the bottle with a thin, off white head. Sharp, bright pineapple and manderin orange nose. Thin hoppy flavors with tangerine, peach and pineapple notes. Not enough of a support for the hops. Light, sweet citrus finish. Okay beer.
