2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I just bought this bottle so I hope it’s a 2011 because there is not a date on the label.
Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy orange color with a half-finger of head, short retention but good lacing.
It has a musty smell, not very appealing. It has the faintest lemon smell.
The taste is nice and clean. Moderately bitter and hoppy throughout. No other real flavors coming through. It’s nice all the same.
Crisp texture. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied.
A straight up IPA. The smell was off, hopefully it’s not widespread.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is oxidized raisin caramel with notes of hops and malt. No too fresh anymore I guess. Flavour is better but still old.

Unlike more herbal fresh hop beers this one on draft tastes like orange juice. One dimensional and sweet but not terrible. Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2013
On tap @ all stars. Overall good IPA, easy to drink. Light transparent brown. Good white creamy head that reduces but is more than just a ring. Moderate bitterness, decent citrus hops. 8.6 bd Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a large white head. Aroma is full of flowers and pineapple. Flavor is very floral with some pineapple, biscuit and medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Darkover (1542) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is sweet and citrusy. A pretty mild IPA. BVery (11239) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Tap at Haymarket. Very non-aggressive IPA - some floral hop but it’s far from bold. Decent enough but far from awesome.
