2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper-amber color. One finger head diminishes to nice, fine lace. Aroma is solid maltiness with some warming alcohol and a bit of citrusy hops. High carbonation gives a tangy bite to mouthfeel. Hop bitterness is the only flavor aspect that I’m getting real range in--the beer’s greatest strength. More body than most IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, dark amber with a white head. Nose is malt and slight citrus hops. Taste is like peach-flavored iced tea. Mouthfeel is medium with a bitter finish. More like a pale ale than an IPA and not as strong on the citrus flavor as I’d prefer.

I felt like this was a weak IPA. It tasted a little bit watered down for me. I expected alot because Brooklyn makes good beer but I was disappointed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange copper color with a medium to large sized creamy off white head. Nose is floral and citrus with lots of sweet malt but also tangy. Interesting and delicious nose. Taste is malty and very bitter with more citrus which is nice but the mouthfeel is kind of harsh and acidic. Overall a pretty tasty beer that went great with pizza.

Pours with a large, frothy, off-white head. Hazy orange body. Aroma of citrus (orange) and slightly spicey hops. Taste is a bit bitter, but theere is a lot of malt covering it. Water like mouthfeel, light bubbles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This ale pours a nice amber color with a small head The nose is of slight citrus hops, but in a very mild way. Taste is pretty good, but definetly mild. This isn’t what alot of people would consider a tipycal IPA, but it makes for a good drink. Definetly an English style IPA.

Good balanced IPA - proof that you don’t need to go overboard on hops to make it taste great. Looks fine; clear orange-yellow and a white head that left medium lacing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color, with a small head, that disappears quickly. the aroma is slight of hops, honey, and malts. The flavor is hoppy, but not over whelming. it is sweet. This is a pretty good beer
