3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very strong hoppy aroma along with a very bitter citrus taste. Appearance is golden, almost orange. Nobody is going to mistake this as not being an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very solid, very malty IPA. Caramel actually overpowers the citrus rind hop aroma. Really more of an IRA than IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a really gorgeous clear gold with a high, white, lacy head. Nose is rosemary, pine, fir, lavender, grapefruit, tangerine, and sage. Strong citrus bitter up front, with a definite ruby red grapefruit tinge, then moving into a warming butter toffee malt sweetness. Finish is long, herbal/citrus, and bitter. Very round and smooth on the mouthfeel, aided by an extremely well balanced carbonation. This is some damn fine IPA.
