3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by bhensonb. This is an IPA as in Imperial Pale Ale. Pours orange amber wtih a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a dry hoppy finish. Very floral, fairly bitter. A nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light orange, with steady white head, about half an inch. Not much in the way of lacing.
Nice nose of citrus and piney and floral hops. Very satisfying aroma.
It all starts out well, with citrus and hops swimming in my mouth, with seemingly decent but faint malt backbone. Then there’s just something off-putting at the end, something not quite right, at the last taste. Can’t put my finger on it, but it diminishes the beer somewhat.
A satisfying IPA, but certainly not great. I would recommend it as a try.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is a clear amber with medium white head. Aroma is a more sweet hop. Taste is certainly bitter, but hidden underneath a sweet earthy hop. Overall a well balanced IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home (thanks to an IP trade with Kurt) 18/12/12 (bottled 3rd Aug 12).
Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head that soon clears to a film and doesn’t even socialise with the edge of the glass - how rude!
Nose is dominated by caramel malt, pine, citrus, touch of biscuit.
Taste comprises hops, bitter grapefruit, orange pith, caramel malt, pine, sweet sugars.
Medium bodied, light spritz in the carbonation but not too detract from an enjoyable mouthfeel, bitter finish.
Decent well balanced IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Straw color, big beige frothy head dissipates into small ring; medium lacing. Aroma citrus, bready, pine, strongly bitter. Flavor is instant and endless bitter; far overhopped for the amount of malt, there is no balance in this one at all. Medium body, slick, oily. Throw another imbalanced, overly hopped IPA onto the pile and let everyone go gaga over it... whoop dee doo.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear butterscotch with a medium white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is fairly light grapefruit, cat piss, pine, caramel. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet, medium bitter, with the bitterness coming on in the finish. Medium body, but creamy, almost oily, in the mouth.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The hops really shine in this beer, with a sweet floral aroma, and a floral hop flavor.
