3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a bronze body with a medium off-white head. Nose is certainly hopped with some malt and caramel notes within. The taste is a standrad IPA with hops, light malt and some sweetened tones underlying the bitterness. This is much crisper than a regular IPA. Finishes very clean as well with a light bitter hint along wioth more malt. Surprisingly better than I expected.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy burnt orange appearance. Aroma is full of citrusy hops, some booze and some malt. Flavor is slightly bitter but not distinguishable, malty, and boozy. Not my idea of a good beer. Perhaps it is too old (gifted bottle).
