3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Weak hops flavor on this brew. Would expect a bit more hoppiness from an IPA. Pour is a nice light amber with a thin white head.

Great golden brown appearance.... immense foamy head. Aroma is average. Taste and palate reveal excellence balance of hops and malt. Very smooth yet not thin. great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: pours a clear golden color with a big off white head. Aromas of grapefruit and sweet fruit. Taste is bitter, but has an easy drinking, almost watery mouthfeel. Normally watery is not what I want, but right now I actually am enjoying it... It’s clean and fresh... Drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden-copper color with a light white head. Aroma is light, mostly floral hops with a bit of pine. Flavor is a bit more bitter than I expected. Mostly floral hops with an ever-so-slight munich malt sweetness. Solid.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 Nevada’s Torpedo, but not as clean. I mean "not as clean" in a good way. I enjoyed this beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE REVIEWED: July 17, 2014... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: the end of a beautiful summer day... APPEARANCE: an all-too-calm orange amber body; thick, nearly two-finger white head dissipates to a rocky, palpable ring; lacing is random soap spots... AROMA: citrus and candy predominate--watermelon and Boardwalk taffy... PALATE: full-bodied wall of bite that sizzles through the teeth; elicits a lasting, mouth-watering Pavlovian response...a bit warm, though for 6.5% ABV... TASTE: strong and clearly pronounced hops here--Cascade for certain, that West Coast varietal--and a nice underpinning of malts when exhaled; a classic IPA taste without too much confusion or interference... OVERALL: of the four choices in the Starr Hill mix pack, this one easily warrants the most return interest, with its style-adherent flavor and its sessionability--just short of outstanding, the beer refreshes and ingratiates with a full-bodied presence...

On tap at Frank Beamer’s American Grill, Hampton VA. Nice amber pour, moderate head. Overall a baseline quality IPA, good but not great.

(bottle, under the "Northern Lights" name) Clear, bubbling copper body with a big, off-white head. A sweet hop aroma. Floral and earthy hop flavor. Highly drinkable. Bitterness is much stronger in the aftertaste.
