2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper orange color. very small head. Light amount of hops on the nose. Fair bit of sweetness, but metallic sweet. Taste is strongly sharp flavors, with some harsh hops. Aftertaste has a bit of a peppermint sting. Not the flavor mind you, but the feeling you get in your mouth after sucking on one. I mean, putting it in your mouth, I mean...nevermind.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Color was nice, but otherwise a quite thin and boring IPA. A lot of malt but too little hops in my opinion.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle pours a transparent, copper orange amber with a thin, slightly creamy white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma isnít like an IPA, itís more like an English style bitter. Nose is sweet, vegetal, a little metallic, biscuits, oranges, a littly earthy. Flavor is a cross between a bitter and an IPA. Crackery, biscuit malts, lemon rinds, oranges, with some pine kicking in at the end. Finish a little watery with some lasting bitterness. Does not have the flavor profile of an IPA in my opinion.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another gawd awful northeast ipa. Rotten cracker malt body-thin and weak. Slight old citrus character. To say it had nothing special would be a lie that the baby jebus would shit his palm leaf diaper over. Back to the egg nog.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale malt aroma. A flowery hop. Hint of butterscotch and sour green apple. A little too much chlorine.
Hazy yellow orange. No head, some nice lacing.
The flavor is heavy flowery yeast. Lots of butterscotch. Doesnít hold up all that well.
Feels buttery but a little fizzy. Sits sandpapery on the tongue. Not all that hot.
