2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft pint at the brewpub: Reddish amber with a light airiness and a sticky head. Slippery with a resiny hoppiness. Fairly understated and really unexciting ... almost TOO smooth.

cask at the brewpub. nice dark tan with a soap bubble like frothy head of white. aroma was citrus light orange with some watermelon and light brown sugar notes. tasted like a piece of bit o honey candy with bitter grass flavor dominating. a nice beer to drink after you wreck someones car and decide to quit your job because they expect a grand from you. fucking hell, whats next? someday i hope i tire of striving toward failure.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Wynkoop. Medium amber with thin head. Medicinal aroma, opens smooth with low-carbonation and a touch of malty sweetness followed by pretty bitter medicinal and herbal hop flavor that does not linger. IPAs are my favorite style but this one is too unbalanced for my taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gooey orange goodness. Strong aroma of citrus, funky hop resins and cookie dough maltiness. Tongue zapping acidity, with some spicy hoppiness, sweet maltiness and a great creamy mouthfeel. A really decent IPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-ish copper color, lovely creamy white head. Nice temperature - very pleasantly not cold. Aroma is good c-hops. I velieve I remember some grain/malt aroma, but then again, they were cleaning the mash tun while we were at the brewery. Good flavor, decent earthy hoppiness with a crisp bitter finish. I enjoyed the whole glass. A solid IPA, but nothing to really make it stand out as amazing.

10.02.05 Tap at brewpub. Hazy orange-gold with lasting, creamy, off-white head. Whack of citrus candy nose and butter cookie, also floral. Flavor is mild, fairly standard western citrus c-hop hoppiness. Lots of sweet cookie to start but quickly becoming tart and dry. Quick finish. Agressive ending to an otherwise laid back brew. Might be nice on cask.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Couleur orangée allant vers le cuivré. Faible mousse beige se résumant à partiellement recouvrir le dessus du liquide. Arômes de malt, de caramel, de houblons floraux et citronnés. Flaveurs citriques et oxydées, de grains et de houblons à la réminiscence d’agrumes. Manque flagrant de support de malt. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, texture aqueuse, carbonatation agressive et piquante. En fût à la brasserie, Septembre 2005.

Pours a nice golden amber. Aroma is floral. Flavor is floral, with a mildly hoppy and sour citrus finish. Palate is smooth and flowing. Nice surprise-- mild, but assertive. Strong finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Irregular ivory head tops the clear amber hue. Big in your face citrus and earth nose that hints at pine as much as lime. No supporting malt seems to help against that immediately biting astringence inherent to the citric acidity. At the same time, the carbonation bites the tongue heavily and we’re left with an unpleasant mouthfeel.
