3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours deep copper with a thin head. Aroma is doughy with pine. Tastes like light citrus and then bread malt taste. Mild bitterness. Crisp and drinkable. Needs more complexity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Berkley. Poured a very good looking deep brownish orange body with a larger frothy off white head. Aroma of old oranges, toast, grains, touch of lemons and grapefruit as well. Medium bodied with a pleasantly bitter finish and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of toast, grains, dried out citrus rinds, amber malts. This needs more hops in the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel orange in color... Citrus hops and toffee aroma... Flavor is seriously malty for an ipa initially with solid English hop backbone and finish on the palate... Solid east coast ipa

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not much of an aroma, taste is okay, bit of bittering hops, a slight metallic aftertaste kinda dampered things

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Received in a trade, bottle date 03/13/13. Yuck, aromas of stale cardboard and super bitter hops. Pours the right color with a decent head. Flavors are just nasty, the epitome of skunk. Reminds me of a hopped Heineken that has gone off. Palate is thin and ends with a super long bitter finish. Overall, this was a drain pour. I have tried to stray from drain pouring, but I only got through a quarter of the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours mostly clear orange/amber with off white head and decent lace. Smell is citrus, caramel maltiness. Taste is big finishing bitterness, citrus, pine hops, larger bready malt aspect. Perhaps a bit past its prime, but underwhelming nonetheless. However, still quite rinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hoping it was an old bottle because this was sampled with a bunch of other IPA’s and was by far the strangest tasting and worst.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 On tap. Pours a light golden amber with two fingers of white head. Aroma of malt and bread with some citrus notes. Taste of earthy grains up front, with a heavy dose of malt and bitterness on the back end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
aroma is faint but floral and slightly roasty...nice looking amber color and creamy white head that leaves lacing..taste some bitterness up front but overwhelmed by a biscuity/lagerlike malt flavor..palate is light,slightly sticky and slick..overall tastes like a sweeter version of a lager i prefer more bitterness and oomph from an ipa

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
One inch white head on a copy pour. Some lacing but head becomes thin ring quickly. Citrus and pine hops w/ some spice...lemon/grapefruit. Crisp w/ medium body. Solid IPA that’s well balanced.
