3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap pours amber brown with small head, ok retention. Lacings coats the glass nicely. Nose is a nice quaff of grapefruit, orange zest, light pine and enough caramel to not overwhelm. Taste has all the elements expected, enough bitterness but it leaves but I wish it had a bit more. A nice IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Tap & Mallet in Rochester. Clear dark amber color with a thin white head that burns away quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, sweet malt and slight fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap at Sticky Lips BBQ in Henrietta, NY. Poured nice with a darker tone than a normal IPA. No discernable hop smell, just slight malt aroma. Tastes the same as it smells, slightly malty with just a bitter aftertaste. One of the worst IPAs Iíve ever had, right up there with CBís Caged Alpha Monkey and Samuel Adams Latitude 48. Oh, and just a note to the brewer and/or Sticky Lips - when you advertise a tasting, you should state whether or not there will be a charge for it. $1.75 for a 4 oz taste of something I couldnít even finish is just wrong. Also, it is Starkerís IPA, not Strakerís. King Moody is turning over in his grave.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap J Ryanís Syracuse NY. Small foamy head. Good lacing. Soft carbonation, amber brown color. Medium hop start and finish. Hop flavor strengthens with time. Well balanced. Server said most clients did not prefer this ipa. Probably because it is not as strong as the other spaís in this barís large selection of ipaís. But I found nothing wrong with it.
