3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, floral, citrus, some dank hops, flavor has a more general bitterness with no real distinguishing flavors, toasted bread. I wanted to like this more than I actually did.

On tap. Dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma is hoppy, with some citrus in it. Tastes malty, some hops, kind of refreshing... Not bad, but i would just get the snpa tap next

Sad for an ipa. Very malty. If it was a pale ale. It would be rated higher. Not impressed by this east coast version of a pale ale.

Bottle, served at St. Elmo’s, Indy. Orange-gold, fruity-flowery hops with sweet pale malts; a lighter IPA but very pleasant.

This is a nice orange color in the glass, crystal clear w/ only a little ring of head after about thirty seconds. This is a very nicely balanced, just slightly sweet and quite bitter, which works well for me in an IPA. The texture is medium bodied and creamy, which also suits the style rather well. While this is pretty tasty and the balance and texture indicate to me it’s a high quality beer, this really just doesn’t have the vibrant hop character I look for in the style. It is hoppy, for sure, but vaguelly so w/ no real juicy citrus notes or deep piny character to grab your attention.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a twelve ounce bottle (one of a twelve pack I purchased at "The Party Source" in Newport, Kentucky)... this one fills my "Maifest 2012" mug with a dark bronze hued brew with a malty aroma as opposed to a citrus aroma. However, the taste of this one is primarily a grassy citrus thing, a fine IPA. Now, as to another rater’s comment that there was minimal lacing to the frothy head... that tells me that you drank it too darn cold! A proper IPA should be served at room temperature, and this beer shows some fime, frothy lacing at that temp! Please remember folks that IPA means "India Pale Ale", and the lads out there defending the "sun never sets" empire didn’t have ’friges, even poorly made Lucas "Prince Of Darkness" ones!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit too malty for me but a nice bitterness. Hard to detect the alleged dry hopping. A fine IPA but gets lost in the sea of much better ones.
