3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Malty. First smell was malt. First flavor was malt. Aftertaste was malt. Of course, this is after a Pizza Port bomber of Wipeout, so perhaps Iím biased. Not a bad malty beer, which I usually donít like - but it works. It just really isnít an IPA. More like a Scotch Ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of grassy and herbal hops with light caramel notes. Flavor was fairly bitter, medium citrus notes and some caramel sweetness. Think this would have been better if a little fresher.

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.

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.
