3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light aroma. Hops are prevalent, but there is an earthy quality as well. Dirty, nutty, toasty. Dry and crisp in the finish, but still a bit below the mark for an IPA.

Had on tap at Charlie O’s yesterday twenty minutes before closing. A friendly toothless Montpelierite townie had bought it for me, along with a shot of well tequila. Oh, yes, it was one helluva night. But this is decent stuff. Red rice, floral and grassy hops, and caramel. I wouldn’t ever say this was a complex beer, but I enjoyed it. Refreshing.

12 Oz bottle poured into a tulip, 1 finger lasting head with nice lacing, fruity malty aroma and tastes the same. More malty than hoppy but I prefer the latter not bad though

Bottle. Mildly cloudy, mostly clear medium amber color. Minimal initial hop aroma. More malty than hoppy for an ipa.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a slightly hazy amber color with medium head and slight lacing. Aroma was hoppy but not as assertive as you would expect from an IPA. Taste and palate is where this brew took a turn towards mediocrity. Despite being USDA certified organic, I would not ponder this path again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 A bit lemony both in nose and mouth, which is nice. Good lacing, nice golden color and pleasing tart taste which otherwise lacks bite.

Bottle. Poured a dark and cloudy orange with a decent white head that went away quickly, tones of malt combined citrus aromas; taste is almost sweet not too much bitterness (for an IPA), very nice easy to drink.
