2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber pour, off white head. Loads of malt up front, taking away from the hops. Very weird beer that I really didn’t enjoy a whole lot. It was like a bready flavored drink with hops. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice, centric pour ... amber, slightly hazy, but not too much. Thin head. Definite hoppy nose, bordering on the earthy and smoky edge. Drinks with a nice rugged character, that little bit of smoke playing around the edges of an otherwise citric drink, easy on the palate and quite drinkable. (#5263, 9/22/2013)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Slightly cardboardy aroma. Taste is intense bitterness, followed by roasted caramel malts. The malts are so strong that you kind of forget about anything else. Very much an East Coast IPA, and kind of a meh example of the style.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 fl oz bottle from a friend of a friend, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear amber with a decent tan head.
Aroma: Lightly mashy/brothy, earthy notes, smells a bit British, peppery and resinous, decent sweet, biscuity malts, a little caramel, oddly floral or soapy, a bit fruity as it warms.
Palate: Medium body, very relaxed effervescence.
Flav.: Lightly peppery, a little soapy and floral, a bit of resin, a hint of butterscotch, dark bread crust, so-so; dry with moderate bitterness and a lightly buttery, peppery finish.
Not working for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cohill’s. Pours amber with a thin head. Fruity aroma. Mellow maltiness quickly taken over by but hop bitterness with both grapefruit and piney flavor. This one got even more bitter as it got warmer. This is a well built west coast style IPA and I have scored it a little lower because its not my favorite style.
