3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear golden amber with a medium sized white to beige head. Very light citrus hops, toast and a hint of caramel. Medium bodied, toast, but it thins out quickly and gets grainy. Dirty malt, toast and sweetness. Empty, slow bitterness without much hop presence.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy dirty orange pour with a small frothy head. Caramel malt dominates the aroma, but there’s a little citrus and herbal hop behind it. Palate is okay, maybe a touch thin. Some artificial characteristics coming out late. Not sure what to think of this one. It’s okay.

12 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a hazy amber/ murky brown color with a small off white head. The aroma is floral, but more of the soapy kind of floral. Some toasted bread and herbal notes. The flavor has moderately toasted malts, soapy floral with a general bitterness to the finish. Worth trying once.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from Party Town. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Lots of fine particles in the body. Pours with a bigger off-white head. Decent bits of lace. More of a soapy hop aroma, lightly citrusy. Big caramel, spicy malt profile, and some unwelcome metallic. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Mediocre... Definitely subpar for an IPA. A lot of soapy hop and caramel/spicy malt. Doesn’t taste fresh or assertive, nor malty or balanced...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep orange with white head, aroma is some nice caramel and citrus malt. Taste is fairly bright hop notes at the beginning, leading to a fairly lasting sweet with a hint of bitter at the end. Not bad, but not enough umph for an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 On tap @ RUB. Deep copper colour with a thick tan head. Nice cascadey citrus hop aroma with some other grassy hop aromas as well. Pale malt and a touch of medium crystal malts as well. Some toasted malts in back of the sweet hops. Flavour is well-balanced. Not a massive IPA, but still quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Brickskeller. Tinny, rich orange and toast nose, resiny honey scented. Texture is oily up front, more rich and viscous in the middle, with peach aromas in the nose, almost creamy as well. Has some celery and vegetable off-flavors, though light, with some lemon and even some basil at times. Decent IPA, a little too sweet, lacking substantial bitterness on the finish, and with just a slight sourness (buttery) in the finish.
