3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Strange. Pours a pale bright amber with a lacy off white head. Citrus hops with lots of sweet malt in the aroma. Drinks much the same way, lots of malt to balance the hops. Med. mouthfeel, low carbonation, smooth, balanced. Sweet with lingering grapefruity taste. The Pale Ale has a lot more in the way of hops but i like the malt balance in this IPA a lot better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at they brewery. Poured a clear copper color with a moderate off-white head that slowly faded to a thin layer and left some thick rings of lacing. Aroma of much of the same dank hoppiness present in the ipa, leafy, piny, and citrus fruit. Smooth, sweet entry with a soft fruity sweetness leads into a moderately bitter hoppiness with a nice leafiness along with a more refrained pine flavor that lingers into the finish. Low carbonation and moderate mouth feel that is complimented by the dry hoppiness. Overall, a little more bitter, less perfumy version of the pale ale. That’s good in my book.

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.

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.
