2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer poured more on the amber side, with very little head. There was a nice hop aroma, but it was a little weak. Also the hop flavors were weak and subdued with more of a malt bias. Not a bad beer at all, but a little off style, not quite hoppy enough.

Pours a hazy copper color with a small head and lots of lace. Aroma is grassy and woody hops but alltogether it’s pretty faint. The flavor is earthy hops with a good bright malt character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 8/12/09
Aroma: Light fruit, pine hops, floral, mild caramel
Appearance: Cloudy golden-orange, some lacing on glass
Flavor: Similar to the nose but better, nice hop profile, light malt backing, tasty

I found this to be a really nice IPA. Well-made, enjoyable, nice hop profile, and a solid example of the style for sure.
