2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of both hops and caramel - but it also has some notes of barnyard, which makes me wonder if it is a bit off. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and some Cascade fruit notes, leading to a hoppy bitter end. OK hoppiness, but nothing crazy.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pilsener golden with a small, off-white head. Lovely flowery hop aroma. Rather light body completely dominated by great, flowery aroma hops that don’t leave any major bitterness. Very pure and straight IPA. 270106

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blond color. Excellent aroma, fruity (apricots, pineapple…). Too thin mouthfeel, with a pleasant resiny bitterness.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Bottle at GBBF
Golden colour, good berry fruit and good hops with lots of citrus, only slightly sweetish and not as overpowering as some of the other American IPAs we had today. Very very nice and extremely drinkable

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Squatters. Clear orange pour with white foam. Grass and orange peel hop aromas at first. Kind of sweet and peachy, too. There’s a nice bit of bread, a hint of caramel, and some light pine. It’s not bad, but sweeter than I usually like in an IPA...still, good citrus qualities and some nice hints of fruit in there. Not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dull gold-beige. The aroma is a mix of limey citrus and stale hops. Earthy taste, quite stale, oxidized. Really this cannot be in good form. I guess they (or their NM distributor) thought using a beer fest as a dumping ground was a good idea. Er, no, that’s where people go to form opinions about your beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great burst of pine aroma. With citrus. Light golden color with decent, persistent white head. Starts with pine, followed by citrus, settling on grapefruit. This is really finishing with a refreshing hoppiness. It is the closest non-bottle conditioned IPA to Bridgeport. Bridgeport is fresher, but this has a great lasting hop finish. It does not quit. Carbonation is either light or effaced by the wonderful flavors.
