3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate cleaning solution aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. This beer did not meet my expectations.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small bubbly white head. The aroma has some earthy and citrus hops, toasted malts and grass which you might find in an IPA. However, the rotting veggies, cleaner and buttery notes were completely unwanted and distracted greatly from the whole experience. The flavors were less offensive; earthy, ripe fruity, grassy, toasted malts, with only small amounts of diacetyl and oxidation. This was disappointing.

Looks like every other Hop Project. Smells pretty much the same, as well. Flavor is the familiar earthy malt, then Crisp, clean and dry hop biteSlightly vegetal, and juicy citrus.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. Bottled May 03, 2012. Clear shiny copper with a small, lasting ring of creamy foam. Resin, citrus and earthy toffee aromas. Flavor is the same mix with even more resin and toffee, and a nice woody touch on the bitter-dry finish. Near-medium body is sleek and balanced, with light-medium carbonation. Very nice session IPA.

Plum amb et with a frothy cream colored head and pretty nice lace. Aroma is lightly sweet, grainy, some mild grassy hops. Flavor is a bitter and very sharp,--literally feels like it is cutting my tongue Quite the clusterfuck.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A muddy brown IPA with too much malts and too much sweetness and very little hop flavor. Bittered for some sense of balance to the sweetness but not for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
6 pack from Kroger. Bottled on June 11, 2012. Pours copper with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sharp and hoppy with a more normal IPA profile than some Hop Projects of late. Some approachable citrus and dank green are noted. The flavor is a little heftier in the malt department, or perhaps the hops don’t cut through quite as much. Still a solid bitterness is present. Grapefruit up front with a more herbal finish. There is something almost earthy that I can’t put my finger on. Honestly, this is a good beer.
