3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice deep orange with a medium white head that dissipated quickly,nice lacing though. Nose is slightly malty,but then pineapple and resinous hops. Medium bodied and surprisingly fresh tasting for a bottle of IPA that is probably 2 months past its prime (bottled in August of 2012), with some grapefruity notes mingled with the malts and some tropical fruit, then a lingering bitter finish. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hard to believe this 7.3% abv. It doesn’t taste like it. Great IPA. Certainly pushing to Imperial but it doesn’t there. Good balance. Hops are citrusy crisp but weighty which this needs to cover that ABV. Does it so well though. NIce light honey sweetness. Label is not my favorite.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, smallish head, hazy orange colour, aroma of herbs, tobacco and bread, flavour of citrus and almonds, strong and a bit coarse grapefruit bitterness. Nice but a bit over the hill.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-brown-tan. Clean, refreshing IPA. Bold lemony citrus hop tones, with a clean, steady malt backbone. Approaching resinous and oily too, in a detracting way. Overall pretty enjoyable, quality offering, minty crisp. Flavorful, but has a burnt oily hop tone that I don’t enjoy.
