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, canít complain for the price though. Thereís worse ipaís out there.

Flavor is just right for this IPA. I donít know why it receives such bad reviews....maybe the formula was changed.

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.

From bottle. Pours hazy orange with lacing. Aroma was malty and grassy. Taste follows with straw and earth. A little musty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle - pours amber/orange with a finger of off white head and modest lacing. Nose is floral and straw. Flavor adds caramel. Light bitterness. Watery. Weak for the style but the high ABV might change my mind.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft Barn, Brooklyn tap ($6): Purchased this as Lionshead IPA, but this appears to be the same beer according to my research, but if not, please correct me. Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is bland and normal IPA. Taste is attenuated IPA. There ainít nothing in here that you wouldnít or shouldnít expect.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Overall, not bad nor great. 16oz/473ml can purchased 9/3/12 City Market, Burlington, VT, $4.99/4pk. First time I've seen anything from this label (Stegmaier) or brewery (Lion) from Wilkes-Barre, PA. Light hop smell and clear, light amber color which is lighter than most current IPAs. Cream-white head, substantial lacing. Fairly hop-forward, more citrusy than floral and on the bitter side. Some alcohol warmth, 6.7%ABV listed. Would buy again but would not seek it out either.
