Bottle. Pours a murky amber with a thin white head and good retention. Aroma was hoppy, with sweet citrus. Tasted very hoppy with East Coast hops and the citrus hits in the aftertaste. The palate was full bite and carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, Julio’s Liquors. Pours a clear gold body with a one finger plus fizzy white head. Lots of delicate lacing. Light visible carbonation. Nose is moderately hoppy with perfumy floral hops and minimal malt impact. Pretty restrained hoppiness with just a light bitterness. Minimal toasted and doughy maltiness showing through. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a watery texture and moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, an average IPA at best. Could use a little more brightness and aggressiveness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. This poured bright yellow-orange with a massive barrier of rocky, firm foam protecting the beer below. Little aroma can penetrate this fortress of foam, but eventually there’s a bit of a fruity, grassy waft. Onto the tongue, the initial impression is a very dry and acidic hoppiness. As I go, the bitterness mellows a bit but still rears its head as the final bit of aftertaste on every swallow. Added to the earthy hops is a caramel appleyness. Could’ve done a bit better with the balance on this one, as it comes off a bit harsh. This would still pair nicely with my wife’s spicy humus or some nice firey chicken wings. (#3101, 9/23/2007)
