Copper color. Fairly strong hops aroma but not overpowering in the flavor.Sweet malty flavor that finishes with a nice suprising bite. A good IPA!

Pleasant aroma of hops and light fruity aroma. Pours an orange-brown, cloudy, with a nice head. Nice malt presence for an IPA; a slight creaminess. What I liked about this beer is that the hops were nicely done. The were present but not overpowering (ala Arrogant Bastard Ale). The result is an enjoyable beer with a nice hoppy blast.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sharp hoppyness in both the aroma and in the flavour. I think the hops throw this beer a bit out of balance, the rest of the beer (particularly the malt) is a bit thin in comparison to the amount of hops, its not bad, theres enough flavour in this one, its just the balance and the enjoyabiltity factor that i didn't particularly enjoy. Reminded me of Schlafly Winter ESB, but perhaps not as strong.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark orange. Head is off white, small, and thin. Stringent hops aroma. Surprisingly bitter with a roasted flavor. It went well with my Padron maduro, but I won't buy this again.

Burnt copper in color, large frothy head with lacing. Flowery hop aroma. Crisp clean taste with a nice hop kick on the finish. An excellent brew

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A deep burnished copper color on the pour, the head prodigious in size, frothy in its texture, the color a winsome light tan and the resultant lace a fine silky sheet to conceal the glass. Light hop floral aroma, sweet malt, crisp, fresh and clean a real treat for the nose, the start is malt, somewhat sweet, the top slender in its feel. Finish has a perky acidic bite, the hops pertinent but not overpowering, drinkable and a nice middle-of-the-road IPA.

Strong example of the style for hop-heads, though not much beyond. Pleasing copper color under a firm head has a malty smell that doesn't appear in the taste. Mouthfeel is nice, though hop bite kind of hits you with few subtleties. Hoppy enough to get me sneezing, though the matliness returns in the aftertaste. Sampled on draft.

Great beer to shoot the breeze with at the Mock Trial nationals, especially when you are doing it around a nice trophy. Otherwise just your average IPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear, deep copper color with a small off-white head that lingers. The aroma is very light, but I detect some malts with a touch of hops. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is quite hoppy but there is a fair amount of malt sweetness to balance that out. The finish is bitter at first, but then fades into a lingering sweetness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Red, copper color. Artifical bitter hop flavor. Too present to fly under the radar. Good note is that it hits rather soon and then moves on.
