3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had to try this $20 IPA . I must say that overall it is not bad. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Not much aroma. The sweetness is too much for an ipa, overpowering the hops which are detectable but not as strong as an ipa should be. Tone down the sweetness and bump up the hops a tad and this would be a good ipa, can’t complain for the price though. There’s worse ipa’s out there.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma - oily smelling hops, but not strong
Appearance - body is a red amber; liquid is clean and clear; head is about 1 1/2" and white decent head retention. Nice lacing
Taste - the hops aren't really aggressive they taste a little stale, the malt body is not very complimentary.
Palate - body is medium; texture is approaching oily; carbonation is average; finish is a bit stale strong hops, likely Centennials.
Palate - body

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, screw-top. Caramel malt and a touch of spaghetti sauce in the nose, dough. Pours hazy amber-orange with a soapy beige head. Taste is sweet with mild bitterness, there’s some mild hoppy fruitiness but not much. Tends rather toward bland and faded etoh-transmission vehicle, unfortunately. Slightly floral, a little grassy/even vegetal, full body with a touch of alcohol showing. It does have a firm backbone, but very little flesh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Orange-tan body. Lots of carbonation bubbles rising to meet a big, foamy, soapy, off-white head. A little old school certainly, but still a decent IPA. Chewy malt tones and a mellow piny grapefruit hop flavor. Fruity English yeast tones. Can’t compete with the World Class beers, but is still an enjoyable, well made beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flavor is just right for this IPA. I don’t know why it receives such bad reviews....maybe the formula was changed.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a medium white head. The aroma is citrus and citrus alone.. orange mostly. The taste is fairly malty. There is grapefruit, caramel, a bit of a bitter finish, and maybe some honey. OK.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
September 2012. Bottle. Orange/amber color with a white head. Malty aromas with caramel and some pine. Flavors are muted and not really in balance. The finish is flat and boring. Move on....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at some Mex place in Center City, Philly. Pretty average IPA, especially considering the various local offerings available elsewhere. Golden orange pour with vigorous carbonation. Strong malt component in the nose, along with bitter hops, only a trace of fruit notes. Mouthfeel a trace syrupy. Decently refreshing in places, but the whole came across as a bit too slick and sweet.
