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 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden amber with a medium off white head slowly dissipating to a razor thin lasting through out with moderate lacing. Aroma of floral citrus hops, grapefruit, caramel malt, yeast and fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with some flavorful tangy grapefruit notes. A medium body on the palate, good carbonation with a smooth sweet bitter tangy mouth feel. Finished with sweet caramel malt, yeast fruity balanced by some floral citrus hops with a slightly tangy grapefruit ending. Overall a very good, flavorful and solid IPA.
