2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Clear vibrant amber with a faint biege ring of head. Light hops that are somehow astringent, caramel, bit of apple and otherwise quite plain. Moderate carbonation, mild body, sweet and caramel taste, becomes quite bitter and not too balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Copper Canyon in Silver Spring, MD.
Understated aroma of pine, light citrus and a touch of malt.
Taste of grapefruit, pine, a bit of floral hops and a little bready and caramel malt.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
An unpresumptive IPA. A fine choice at a Copper Canyon, but not your best option at a typical beer bar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Description says Northern Lights is a seasonal, if thatís the case this beer has held up well. Citrus aroma, golden bodied, foam and lacing throughout the sample. I like the crispness of this medium bodied IPA. Even tasted a wee bit of banana. Sampled in a Veltins 0.3l thistle glass.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 It was creamy orange, but had only a trace of a head. The aroma was strong hops and citrus, and the flavor was really big, bitter hops. Pine, grass, citrus, and a little sweetness in the finish. Comparable to Sierra Nevadaís Torpedo, but not as clean. I mean "not as clean" in a good way. I enjoyed this beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear deep golden pour, thin white head and light lacing ... aroma is light and malty with just a hint of citrus hops .... taste is of bitter citrusy hops, caramel malts and lightly toasted malts with a light rindy and resiny hop flavor as well ... finish is bitter and lingers slightly ... very apa-ish and boring

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark hazy golden-amber body. Moderate sized off-white head. Light citric and grassy hops, assertive caramel malt base in the nose. The flavor profile is even more minimalistic--fain hop bitterness, prominent caramel and pale malts. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, moderate bitterness in the finish.

Bottle served at Level One in DC. Mild nose for ipa, nice amber color with appealing lacing. Comes off a touch sweet, but otherwise nicely balanced. Quite refreshing, just ordered a second.
