Copper color with good inch of fuzzy head that shinks to a light film with good lacing. Not much in the aroma, some malt sweetness. Initially sweet lighty malty tastes but finishes with very spicy and bitter hops. Not bad, but not great.

For an IPA, it’s very malt heavy; even more than the citrusy hops, which come off as very mild. Despite it’s faults with the flavor, they’re relatively minor and it is still a good beer to try out.

Cask at GBBF 2011 (UK hop version). Aromas of orange marmelade and hint of alcohol sharpness. Taste of nutty malts, orange marmelad and strawberry. Medium to firm bitterness. Nice fruitiness.

Nothing much good to say about this. Boring. Not much for hops. Malty and nutty. Won’t have again

On draft at iron abbey. Not much in the way of aroma or taste, I’m picking up some slight bitterness, not much else. Has a "chalky" aftertaste. Won’t have again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Too bitter for my taste. Not much citrus at all. I prefer more of a citrus note in my IPAs. This tastes almost like a porter. Lots of roaster barley notes and bitters!

Pours a bright pale amber with an acceptable white head. Almost no aroma, maybe a little pale malt. Taste is sweet pale malt along with a sharp bitterness that is a little too assertive. Not soft and floral/citrus, but more like chewing on an aspirin. Stays in your throat long after the swallow. This would be pretty good were it not for the unpleasant bitterness.

Bottle. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Faint hoppy aroma. Nice crisp cereal grain and citrus bread taste with a slightly astringent finish.

Bleh. IPA only in name. Golden hue with a think white foam. Minimal hop in the nose, even less in the flavor. Bready and slightly bitter.
