3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark gold in color. White head. Average appearance for an IPA. Mild hop aroma. Flavor is outstanding- this is a solid brewpub IPA. Just delicious berries, floral and citrusy hop bitterness. Beautiful lacing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright golden-copper colour. LIght fruity, citrusy hop aroma. Only light bitterness for style but lots of chewy maltiness...light crystal. The finish is a bit spritzy. Flavour is fairly standard but the mouthfeel is substandard...not very rounded.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear deep golden. Lychee aroma. Sweet up front with solid, rounded malt profile, yet dominated by powerful hoppiness. Resiny very bitter finish. Aggresive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lots of hops in this one, almost giving it a bit of a metallic taste. Maybe a little over the top in that respect. Still, a good IPA and certaintly worth having.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Love the "thirsty bear" logo of this brewery. Orange, thick small white head. Aggressive citrus hops and some malt in aroma. Very bitter and unbalanced taste with nutty brown malt. Lots of flavour, it just doesnít come together like it should. Becomes harsh the longer it sits. Just ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in downtown San Francisco. Pours with a dark orange appearance, frothy white head, decent lacing. The aroma has a pronounced sprucey tint to it and the standard citrusy hoppy flavor. Not tongue numbing bitter, balanced well with some nutty malty notes. Decently creamy mouthfeel is a tad too stingy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very nice beer. Aroma is citrus, with a hop-heavy nose. Has a very pale coloring, almost the same as the vanilla brew. Flavos is standard IPA, but has a bit of spice in it that gives it a nice kick. Itís not exactly an earth-shattering brew, but itís not without its charm.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
02.18.05 Clouded orange-amber with fleeting but large head, plenty of lacing. Nice floral c-hop nose. This stuff is crazy bitter from front to back to after. Not much to be found in this brew as the bitterness is dominant and overwhelming of any other character. Still, I drank two pints.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Amber ale with a nice floral hops aroma, with peppery notes. Nice sharp floral hops attack. Lots of citrus in finish. Again, rather light in body. (June 2004).
