look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a burnt copper orange with very little head or lace. A floral hop aroma is most notable at the first sniff, with a hint of sweet caramel in there as well. Flavor is a very subtle floral hop up front, with a very nice toasted malt presence at the back of the palate. Mouthfeel suffers on this one from the lack of carbonation. The bottle implies that it should should be good through the end of July, 2007...today is 7/29/07, so maybe I will revisit later on. Not a bad beer, but one that probably will not compete with others in it's class. Nonetheless, every beer deserves a try!

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.
