3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 Sample at Pour House from Erica, pours a clearish copper brown with barely any head or lacing. It was on a hand pump which usually means the beer is going to suck ass. Aromas of disgusting stale booze, light hops, weird basement sewage, taste is almost worse then aroma, rye, stale malts, stale hops, light rust, caramel. I love amarillo hops but these must have been the most brown schwagged out nugs they could find. Please don’t age ipas any more, bottle them, then send them on there way. Brutal. Re-rate, much better then the first time I tried it, lots of sweet malt caramel and bitter hops. Good finish, moved it up a full point and a half.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a slightly reddish amber color with a thin off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with apricots, pine, and some flowers. Some sugar as well in the aroma with caramel malts. Taste is nice and crisp with lots of floral notes. Some good caramel with a touch of candy and apricots. Good hoppy notes. Finish is a bit smooth, not as bitter as expected. Maybe a little bit too sweet. Overall nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Prohibition Taproom. Pours deep amber, slightly cloudy, with off white head and mild lacing. Notes of light piney hops, caramel and roasted malts. I recall this being much better last year. Not bad, but I believe the 2012 batch to be much more malt forward.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours cloudy brownish orange with foamy off-white head. Pine, resin, floral, light fruits, tangerine, caramel. Kind of odd flavor that hits different notes throughout the taste. Moderately bitter and sweet. Didn’t realize the alcohol content was this high. An interesting brew for an occasional change, but not one I would regularly drink.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking beer, with nice copper color and lots of beige head and lacing. A nice looking beer. Aroma of lemon, pine, and malt. Tastes of banana esters, followed by a hop citrus bitterness. This one seems to have off flavors especially for an IPA. It’s ok at best.
