3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper pour with medium off white head. Nose is resiny hops and bready malts.. The hoppy front gives in to malty middle for a well-rounded IPA. Body is a little sticky with a bitter finish.
Nice hybrid of British and American IPA characteristics.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and English malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose was decently hoppy and a little bitter, but without much of the specific aromas of the hop varietals. Taste was bitter, but without much character. OK drink, but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper, clear, off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt with a little caramel, a slight buttery note, fairly subdued hop aroma. Flavor is malt-balanced with some caramel sweetness. Hop character is subdued for an IPA. Wide range of ratings for this beer, this may not be the best batch.
