3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dirty orange amber with a frothy long-lasting head, big-bubbled sheets of lace. Taste is a conventional IPA - caramel malt at the beginning, pine hops take over somewhere through the palate, a little revisit of malt deep in the finish. Nothing special here, just another good American IPA.

Pours a deep copper color with a thin head. Aroma is doughy, thin pine. Light citrus moves to bread malt taste and very mild bitterness. Crisp, clean but not terribly complex but drinkable, would benefit from much more complexity as it is a solid base British IPA but does not stand out.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a little bit of white head. Aroma of mostly hops but not very strong I also get some hints of malts. taste is quite watery nice bitterness to it. probably a good alternative to introduce somebody to the world of IPAs since it is not that strong but it stills shows the qualities of the style. Easy to drink.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Don’t know why or when they started using wheat malt in all their beers. Wasn’t bad in ’10, but I think its changed now. Maybe just me.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Distant hop smell. Flavor of caramel and slight bittery hop. A let down of an ipa but a decent beer. More malty than most ipas. A beer snob would wave his/her hand away at this. Its too hoppy for "standard" beer drinker to get drunk off easily, and too weak for a connoisseur to give the high ratings.

Some pine, citrus and sweet malt on the nose. Flavor is pretty light on the malts with a decent dose of bitterness.
