2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Below average beer. This beer had no aroma and a thin mouth feel with taste of malt and sweetness not much hop aroma or flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Deep amber body. Mid-sized beige head. Light lacing and good retention.
S: Light citrus, perhaps some orange and grapefruit. Some pine cones and a rich caramel and bread malt base.
T: Malty base shines through while the hop bitterness is more subdued than the nose would suggest. Slight citric and pine hop characteristics.
M: Light carbonation is good up front but leads to a somewhat thin finish without any bite or crispness to speak of.
O: All things considered its a decent IPA. Despite being a harvest IPA, it doesn’t really convey the "fresh" hop characteristics I was expecting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Capone’s. Orange pour, light aroma. Rich and bready flavor with some sharp hops. It is called an IPA, but my taste buds thought it seemed more like a nice harvest APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours clear deep gold with a tall foamy off-white head.
Sweet malt aroma combines with fresh hops.
Light bitterness that quickly fades to a dry finish. I was expecting full flavor here from the aroma and I only got a watered down version of what I was expecting.
I know Weyerbacher can do better than this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber, clear, white head. Hop aroma - pine. Similar to a flavorful pale but with heavier body. Nice finish. Would have again -- very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 Aroma of citrus, grass and notes of pine. Pours deep amber with a milkshake head. Tastes of pine notes, bitter grass and floral. Delicious and hoppy but slightly botanical.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish with a small white head. Aroma of fruity/citric hops. Bitter & sweet with a fruity/citric hop flavor. Finish is slightly soapy and overall the beer is pretty one dimensional. Decent but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) OK, I am admittedly an advocate of this brewer, but I think the fresh hops stand out in the aroma and flavor for this seasonal IPA. The taste has a good balance while remaining hop forward. ABV is just right for the style. My preferred autumn seasonal from Weyerbacher.
