3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with small white head. Hoppy aroma. Pine, citrus, and hops make up the bulk of the flavor with some maltiness that fits its English style description. Flavor isnít particularly strong. Not particularly exciting but not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in the Summit spring sampler. Pours deep golden with thick white head. Nose is very full but simple - fresh cone hops - some sticky piney resins, quite assertive. Flavor is lightly sweet, with a fullness of cereal grains and a bit nutty. Finish is strong pine-like hop flavors with a very pleasant and relatively strong bitterness. Hop resins stick in the mouth after the finish - this aftertaste is possibly the beers most striking characteristic and it reminds me of some of the better British pales Iíve tasted.

12oz bottle poured into glass. While this has some good hop character to it there really wasnít much to jot down. Itís a straight forward IPA, somewhat bland, but a good attempt at the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably not fair that I rate this, as I think that it wasnít fresh. Poured a light amber with a smallish head. Good lacing. Hops were faded leaving a grainy, bready, and slighly piney flavor. I think the hops were gone. Bottle - Friendís House - Atlanta, GA

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dirty amber with a khaki head, decent lacing. Slight nose of pine, citrus that got better as the beer warmed up. Mostly dominated by a caramel malt scent. Not a whole lot going on here but just enough to be noticed. Abit of citrus on the tongue initially, followed by some maltiness ending with a touch of hop tartness. Once again not much going on in the amount of flavor but what is there seems balanced enough. A decent brew but nothing I would seek out.
