3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a light amber orangish color with an off white head. Aroma is big citrusy hops, with a nice balanced malt backbone. Flavor is a bit more on the bitter end, but has a good fruity citrusy hop presence. A nice flagship IPA.

Rated based on notes from 26 May 2012 -- This is a standby IPA. If a bar doesn’t have a good IPA, it should at least have this beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks the picture of health. Radiant, orange amber with a messy inch of foam atop. Daubs a devilish lace in its wake. Bold, resinous and piney, whole cone nose brimmed by hints of bitter grapefruit, roasted peanut husks, doughy white bread and lemon peel. Noticeably dulled hop notes on the palate. Mild burnt rubber amongst some tree-sap, nettles and sharp, bitter herbs. Quite tight and on the leaner side as far as body with light carbonation. Lengthy bitter hop swallow with a light hint of honey and bready malts. Seems to lack some tropical fruit and esters to lift it. Quaffable but not a stand-out!

The beer pours a translucent golden orange colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is lemony, grainy, with hints of caramel and yeast. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was caramel, weak citrus hops, and a light fruitiness. Good, but not as goo as the arrogant bastard.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
First smell welcomes flowers in your nose. Firs sip is a harmony of citrus, sweet caramel malt, some pine and freshness. Sip after sip it grows. Slowly the real bitterness becomes clear, but never hindering the complete palate with is carbonization and complex taste.
