Fresh bottle via trade. Pretty nice IPA overall. Nice malt balance to the slightly sweet and slightly citrus hops. Medium bitterness. Pretty good.

Did not live up to the hype. Not hoppy enough, and flavor profile rather boring

12 ounce from mix six pack at Foodery. Sweet and malty IPA. Little bit of that fruit flavor some give off. Not a hop bomb by any means.

12oz bottle from Rockland Beverage. Had in Manford. Pours dark amber. Aroma and palate are very dry hoppy. A hint of citrus on the tongue. Fresh. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pine balanced with sweet malts. Resiny. A bit thin in the middle. Sweetness comes out strong towards the end. Dry and bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 12oz bottle. Standard orange colored IPA with thin white head. Hops are quite noticeable, but take a backseat to the malt profile. More of a piney hop flavor and a bit stinky in the nose once it warms. Meh, itâ€™s okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours light amber with a white sticky head. Nice lacing. Light aroma of pine and orange/tropical fruit also some sweet bready notes. The flavor is pretty subdued yet well balanced with the pine and hop resin dominating. The body is fairly light with medium carbonation, the bitterness lingers nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at 1702. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy, tropical fruits and some resin. Taste has a nice sweet malt backbone with dry bitterness. Medium bodied and oily. Bone dry finish. Pretty good and super bitter.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep golden-approaching-amber color. Aggressive bottle pour yielded a 2-inch head that slowly dissipated, left a nice lacing on the glass. Disappointed in the aroma, guess I’ve been spoiled by the floral aromas of competing IPAs. Solid bitterness, but not balanced entirely right with the malts. A good beer, but not one of my faves and IPAs are one of my favorite styles. Something missing in the malt complexity, so it’s a little too hoppy. Won’t be plunking down cash for another sixer of this too soon.

Nice big hoppy aroma when the cap is popped. Primarily a peppery bitterness that lingers for a bit before departing. I was halfway done before I’d even realized it.
