3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very orangey pale amber with a medium-sized off white head. Aroma is heavy on the hops -- very resinous, with some citrus and pineapple. Flavor is balanced. Lots of caramel malt and resinous, citrusy hops. Thick mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Lots of citrus aroma of pineapple, peach, grapefruit, and perhaps some pear of apple. Taste has much more pine than the initial impressions. The citrus is much more muted and is replaced with a grassy flavor. Good amount of bitter hops, while neither the bitterness or hops is overpowering while drinking. The bitterness hits you in the aftertaste. Dry, medium bodied, with a sticky palate. This one is alright, but not as full or tasteful as others in this style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle date 6/19/12. Poured orange with a creamy off-white head that left good lace. Nice citrus rind aroma. The flavor found mash up of floral, caramel, and light citrus. Light to medium body and a mild bitterness throughout.

Just an everyday ipa. Nothing special. Not sure if I'd go out of my way to pick this one up again, but I would suggest a try for others

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Heavy grapefruit with some caramel in the nose. Pale straw color. Hops are upfront in initial / mid continues bitterness and some sweetness spreads / hop bitterness takes over again in final. Medium body. Certainly well-hopped stuff, but overall a standard, unexceptional US-style IPA. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Disappointing IPA, hoppy but with a muddled profile, lack of distinction in flavors.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a decent beer. Nothing great, but a nice and light tasting IPA. Great for summer time. Aroma was alright. Light malt, caramel and notes of citrus. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a one finger off white head that left quickly. Taste was light and refreshing. As the commercial description says, itís a perfectly balanced beer. Not very hoppy which newcomers to craft beer would probably like. The sweet malt, iced tea and caramel flavors are balanced by pine and citrus hops in the finish. If you wait a few minutes between sips, the hops come out more and dry the mouth. Decent carbonation. Nice run of the mill IPA

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange/gold with a big coarse head. Aroma is citrus, flowery hops. Taste is bitter hops. The balance seemed off at first, too bitter but toward the end it got better. Good mouth feel, over all a solid IPA.
