3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle shared by bret27. Amber with a white head. Weird aroma with a dirty dishrag thing going on, along with some earthy hops. Sweet malty flavor with nice balancing hop bitterness and some citrus flavor. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor was a nice mellow but unremarkable IPA, but the aroma on this was just odd.

Clear copper pour with medium white head, nice lacing down the glass. Scent is both piney and grapefruity hops and bready malts.. Nice biscuty bready malt up front with great hop flavor in the back. Body is a little sticky with a bitter finish. One of the best IPAís Ive had.

If i could only drink one IPA ever again, it would be this one. Itís always better when i can find it on tap, but itís pretty good in the bottle too. It has great malt complexity, and still maintains a strong hop profile.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours orange with fastly disappearing white head. Smells very yeasty for an IPA and almost sour...has a very odd smell to being itís an IPA. Has lots of caramel notes, definitely has a bready taste to it. Bitter but not very flavorful hop characteristics...just bitterness. Medium bodies, a bit flat, oily feel. Not very good, the only good part is the bitterness that it leaves in your mouth, other than that...the flavors just arenít quite there. Would not buy again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance has a hazy orange color supporting a fair dissipating head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice balance with the citric hops and sweet malt. Taste having a bold upfront flavor of an IPA with the piney, grapefruit flavor with the sweet caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

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.

3.3 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.
