3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Code date of 8/9/15. Appearance: Deep amber and clear with a light khaki head.
Aroma: relatively faint hop aroma for an American IPA. Some floral and herbal notes, but itís minimal. Caramel malt also noticeable.
Taste: Rich caramel and toasty malt flavors dominate, with a sharp hop bitterness that has some herbal and resinous notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with some viscosity and low carbonation.
Finish: Some lingering herbal bitterness and caramel malt.
Overall: Definitely an east coast as opposed to west coast IPA. More malt balanced than a west coast IPA. Drinks like a slightly hoppier American Amber

Amber, big foam. Filtered. Grassy resinous fruoty hops in the nose. Medium body. Taste is a bit flat, not incredible!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light yellow color until it settles into a light copper color. Drank this beer on nitro which could explain why it was creamy with a light IPA bitterness aftertaste. Minimal floral flavor, more of a light IPA in complexity as well as characteristics.

Nice aroma and taste. Some pine together with the hops but it is too bitter for me....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Very light haze in the deep amber to copper body. Short light tan head with average to poor retention. Settles in a light coating.
Aroma: Very light aroma with malt sweetness, light peppery aroma, tea and herbal hop aromas.
Taste: Moderately bitter grapefruit runs through with peppery floral overlying flavors. Solid malt backing with a lingering spicey hop presence.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: The hop profile isnít a favorite of mine. Decent IPA, but not for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In bottiglia da 33cl. Aroma di caramello, erbaceo e vegetale. Al palato resinoso, vegetale ed erbaceo. La luppolatura ha lasciato solo un amaro eccessivo mentre i suoi profumi se ne sono giŗ andati.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, poured into tester glass. A: Bronze, clear, medium disappearing had, left some lacing. S: Pine, orange, malts, zest. T: Slightly sour apples, hint of charcoal, fruity but initially it didnít have vast amounts of bitterness. Finished with a hit of wheat and eventually there was some bitterness which lingered, the malt to IBU balance was slightly on favour of the malt. M: Light to medium body, not too much carbonation. O: Good but not memorable, would get buried under the all the good east coast IPAs.

Good, solid IPA. Aroma is a little bit to weak, but except this itís more than ok. Strict, honest, bitter beer.
