3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Strange. Pours with a clear yellow body and a lasting white head. Aromas are sweet, floral, fruity and spicy with medium to light esters. Flavors are oddly estery for an IPA, apple and pear. Medium citrus notes. Light bitterness. Medium to lively bubbles, somewhat dry, medium to light bodied for its size. For hops, I preferred their pale ale.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Displayed as 7% and 66 IBUs. Rustic light amber in color, with a fluffy white head. Aroma of soggy jalapeno and other spicy greens, some biscuit malts. Taste was much the same, unfortunately. Peppery notes, over-grassy hops, some bitter spinach or some spicy green pepper. Bitterness was subdued, just kinda there. Not too keen on these kinds of IPAs.

draft. filtered copper; small head. wet and soggy crackers and oat malt nose with wet vegetal, flabby aromatic hops. mildly sweet approach. vitamin chalkiness and mint/lemon/herb yeast and hop flavor. seems like a poorly formed recipe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at the brewery on September 16, 2010. Deep orange, almost lightly amber in color with a thin white head. It has a nice, fresh hop aroma, almost soapy though. For 66 IBU it has a nice hop profile, but almost tastes like there’s some sort of hop extract in it. Very concentrated for 66 IBU. Huh. Very resinous. It has a thin, bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rather dark red - more malt-forward than most American ipas, along the lines of Victory Hop Devil - malts are medium-sweet, with some bready quality to them - copious earthy hops, but, much like their pale ale, their flavor takes more prominence than their bitterness, creating a decent balance - a bit of grapefruit pith - a decent, balanced IPA, but nothing stand-out.
