UPDATED: JUL 8, 2015 Appearance is clear yellow orange, medium white head.Aroma is faint. fruit (berry), wood, resin.Taste is.... ashy, pasty, not pleasant.Lively carbonation, but no amount of bubbles makes up for the retched taste.Not a fan.Update. 2.4.15.....7.7.15. 2.2 up to 3.5. Must have had a bad bottle earlier. This one was quite good. Smooth taste, hoppy but not overly, light wood and citrus.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a golden amber color with a small white, quickly vanishing head. I think I detect a very faint tropical fruit aroma. I taste some tropical fruit, pine and citrus flavors from the hops along with a slight hop bitterness. This is a nice enough beer but itís nothing special. I probably wouldnít but this one again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral citrusy hops on the aroma. Really fresh smelling. Itís really hop forward which a plus for me. Lots of pleasant hop bitterness with a dry finish. I like it a lot. This is the first Starr HIll beer Iíve had and it was really good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear gold color with decent lacing and fair head retention. Tastes slightly bitter and malty, but nothing really stands out here. Pretty non- descript.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 Pretty disappointing ipa. Not much hop aroma or taste. A nice malty pale ale but not an ipa other than maybe abv. Average pass. Nice fading head.
Update fresher bottle. Nice light hop flavor.

Orange pour, clear with white head. Bottle pour. Nice tropical and fruity flavor. Unusually not too bitter or hoppy for the style. Very drinkable.

Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is caramel malt and citrus with a touch of resiny hops. Sweet caramel malt with a touch of citrus and some floral hops. Medium body with aggressive carbonation. ok beer by me

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pine, grassy hops notes, bitter finish. Not what Iíd call an interesting IPA - it lacks nuance - but ok if those superior beers arenít on the menu
