3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a white, two finger-head that vanishes slowly leaving a good lace. Clear light amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is a strong hop. Starts with hops, somewhere there are malts - there is a trace of sweetness but the hops dominate, bitter finish that lingers. $2.30 for a 12oz bottle from Julioís Liquors Westborough, Ma.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured light amber, nose is all floral hops, very pleasant aroma. Flavor was more floral hops, the malts I thought were nicely blended. This was very good and the gargoyle on the bottle is pretty neat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orange/gold with a large head. Aromas are caramel, pine and spices, quite sweet and surprisingly floral - also, alcohol. Flavours are caramel malts with pepper and spices, followed by bitter hops. Lots of pepper on the finish. Very good.

A very enjoyable IPA, with a noticeable bitter quality. Golden and cloudy in color. A very refreshing beer to be enjoyed with steaks or on a hot summer day.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A strong floral taste and aroma, not too hoppy. A sort of Gewurztraminer beer. Very attractive color. $4.50 for 22 oz means itís not an everyday brew for me, but I would serve it to guests.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale orange, thick white head. Aggressive hop aroma with a little nuttyness. Fresh, citric, flowery flavour with some notes of grapefruit and lemon. Somewhat sweet palate. Has a little warming alco-feeling. Decent, lingering bitterness in finish. Excellent.
