3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Darker amber, thin to moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Soft hoppy nose.   Seems to be a very muted hop, not terribly bitter, slight citrus peel, perhaps some dank basement.   Looking at the English flag on the label makes me think its one of those hop types that isnt too bitter, but instead has a dank/basement aspect.   Oh look, its Citra!   Very smooth, bigger than a Pale but as an IPA, seems almost too smooth (lacks a bit bitterness punch).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes fairly soft, nothing real biting, and certainly a bit muted.   Lacks any zest of any sort.   However, its clean and unoffensive.   Thanks to JStax for the bottle!

Pours into tulip a clear orange with a small eggshell head. Aroma is lots of mango and pineapple with hints of pine and caramel. Taste is bitter grapefruit that goes to dried mango then caramel sweetness then dry bitter grapefruit finish. Nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light, orange-tinged amber color, quite active, with a thin but sustained head of white foam. Drinks with a foamy mouthfeel, and a orange-citrus acidity up front. There’s a funky, musty mush behind that. Enjoyable if a bit home-spun. (#4997, 4/25/2013)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber, very small off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is citrus, quite strong butterscotch, caramel. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light bitter, very buttery, which was pretty darned surprising to me Medium body, watery. I can only assume this has been on the shelf for a while, but I can’t find a date on it anywhere to confirm.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a deep golden color with a half finger of suds. The nose is pungent with candied oranges, caramel malt and a touch of lemon peel. The palate follows the nose nicely with big citrus notes, grapefruit and some sweet caramel undertones that bitter out nicely and linger with a touch of grass.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Clear golden brown with a scant head. Nose is pink grapefruit, brown sugar and light pine; so fresh. Medium body, resiny with a tingle. Taste is orange, caramel, mango, grapefruit peel and pine. A nice west coast IPA if a bit clichéd.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hot damn! I didn’t expect this to be so good. Aromas of huge grapefruit and tangerine came bursting out of my snifter. Tropical and floral aromas followed up. Pineapple? Nice! Pour is hazy amber with a thin white head. Flavor is pineapple, grapefruit, some pine, light caramel malts, and a touch of guava. An awesome IPA!

12oz bottle in a Heady Topper glass. Pours amber/copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with hints of pine plus caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same, with the hops dominating. Average texture. A good IPA.

Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Wow - this is a west coast IPA that would make a lot of west coast brewers jealous. They nailed it. Loads of tropical fruit hops all over the aroma and taste. Very well balanced. Simply delicious. Outstanding brew!
