4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy reddish amber appearance with an average size beige head and good lacing. Floral hops hit first in the aroma with plenty of citrus in the background. A clean, pungent taste with a variety of hop characteristics and a solid malt backbone. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish that hides the abv pretty decently. A well made example in a style with a lot of competition.

A fairly "thick" IPA with a malt profile that reminded me of a light Belgian. Quite carbonated. Good.

A pretty solid DIPA with a nice hoppy profile. Nothing special but nothing wrong with it either. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012
Location: Draft at Cork City, 10/14/12
Aroma: This one has some spice, citrus, and a little pine on the nose
Appearance: Clear orange-caramel colored pour, with a white head, and light, sticky lace
Flavor: The tastes falls off a touch from the nose, and is light-medium sweet and lightly bitter
Palate: This one has a decent mouthfeel, a soft, almost flat, carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
Solid, not great, kinda sweet IPA. The nose is pretty decent, but it falls off a touch flavor-wise. Its fine, but I didn’t love it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-bronze color with a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was moderately strong pine, light grapefruit, lemon and caramel. The flavor was bitter, sour and tangy and a touch off with notes of pine, resin, caramel and a hint of wood. Medium length bitter and sour pine and resin finish. Medium body. Ok.

12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty malty nose with lots of grapefruity hops and floral notes. Body starts with good fullness and sweet light caramel malt with lots of fresh resiny southern hemisphere hops and bitter balance before a drier clean bittersweet finish. Well-balanced, flavorful and true to style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber, frothy head, medium bodied IPA. At first I thought this was a straightforward English style IPA, however, as the beer warmed the citrus flavors from the hops really came through.
