2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pros: Solid appearance with an alluring color and nicely layered foam.
Cons: Hop character is apparent, but needs more brightness and pungency. Too herbal and medicinal for my liking, not citrusy enough. No malt character and a thin body. Just another IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 5-26-2010. This bottled beer pours a medium sized white head, transparent gold body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is fruity, pine, bitter, and floral hops. The taste is bitter, fruity, pine and some citrus hos. The palate is lightly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable, rather mild tasting for the style and worth trying,.

Had it out of a bottle. It had a beautiful amber hue and thick white head and thats it. It has a wet basement aroma and a not so good bitter beer taste. Could have been paste its prime.

Pours a nice orange with white head and lacing. Sediment too. Aromas are pretty juicy and citrusy at first. Flavors are pretty bitter.. But I thought i thought it was a tad on the watery side.

Part of a mix your own sixer. Might have been a bit old, but the hops weren’t what I like. Musty aroma and muddled malt/bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught pint, Sugar Maple, Milwaukee viii/23. More than solid light sessioning IPA, just like its origin midway between West coast citrus zest and more floral, herbal overtones, still Cascade, not Simcoe bitter. Dry malt backbone.
