3.08/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Review from my tasting notes, and the beer was from a birthday beer of the month 4 beer sampler.

Appearance: 12oz bottled that was bottled on 8/19/08. Pours a hazy copper color with loads of head. Lots of white lacing. (The first beer poured 3 fingers of head, without emptying the bottle, the second beer was a more normal finger and half for the full 12ozs.)

Smell: A great smell, very fruity, apples, pineapple, mango and carrot. It smells just like blended breakfast juice. Very sweet smelling.

Taste: Hops, and alcohol, the head got in the way of tasting the first beer. Hops, alcohol and hints of carrot juice from the second beer. Slight hops in the aftertaste with hints of lemon. Disappointing, this beer did not have a lot of flavor.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated and a little thin. The beer leaves the mouth feeling a little dry.

Drinkability: A great smelling beer, but the extreme head of the first beer and the sub-par taste makes the beer a bit of a chore to drink.

2.8/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: slightly hazy; copper colored; with a moderately aggressive pour, I got a 1/2 inch off white head that receded almost immediately; very little lacing;

S: all caramel malt with a touch of pine;

T: not a lot of flavor; what's there is mostly malt with a bit of pineapple leading into a long lasting, moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: there are too many good (and really good) IPAs out there to spend time and money on this one.
