4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
It pours a golden yellow and gives the same color body with a one inch white foamy head in my pint glass. The smell is hop forward with some nice lingering malts that come through as the beer warms. The taste is basically the same. The mouthfeel is about a medium and smooth, slightly creamy. Overall, this is a great American IPA, get it if you see it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange-amber pour with a medium thin frothy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma oh hops, malt and pine. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, caramel malt and fruit, The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering piney hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle-----> snifter. Pours a dark orangish straw with a small soapy white head. Smells of sharp citrus and mild biscuit. Floral, bitter hops dominate the front and back with some bready malt tossed into the middle. Medium palate with sufficient carbonation. Nice drinking everyday IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a cervoise glass.
Pours golden amber with orange hues; two finger bright white fluffy head. Above average retention and quite a bit of splotchy lacing. Citrus blossoms, grapefruit, and a hint of pine on the nose. Grapefruit rind bitterness right off the bat, met by some lightly sweet caramel malt and pineapple. Finishes crisp and dry with the return of bitter citrus rind. Lighter side of medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth and silky mouthfeel. Solid and enjoyable IPA.

A good though not exceptional IPA, on tap at Capone’s Restaurant. Big IBU, fruity and orange. Spider lace. Decent drinkability, however some bleach in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 Absolutely superb IPA- one of the better affordable IPAs I’ve ever had my grubby paws on. Super complex on the nose and finish, citrus and hop like none other. A really nice grassy finish, herbal and carbon and alcohol all expertly balanced in a totally incredible IPA.

Bottle. Slightly hazy honey like color. Aroma is caramel, floral, biscuits. Medium bitterness. Some pine and grapefruit notes. Malt backbone. A solid ipa.

Draft at Commercial Taphouse. Pours a medium orange, nice head. Good caramel accented malts with a pleasant hoppy finish, the standard grapefruit and pine, touch of earth. Palate synchs up with the nose. Although nothing groundbreaking here, it is a very solid brew.
