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

On tap at The Hopyard in Pleasanton on 9/1/2011 (going through my notes and posting older reviews).

A: Golden, clear. Medium head and head retention. Tiny white bubbles.

S: Subtle, earthy hops.

T: Light on hops for an IPA. Super-balanced with the malt flavor. Ultimately, it tastes more like an ESB or British pale, rather than an American IPA. Pleasant earthiness and green tea flavor. Light fruitiness (certainly not as much citrus as a lot of West Coast IPA's, though).

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Minus points for being un-IPA-like, but it's a tasty, highly drinkable beer.

Serving type: on-tap

3.36/5  rDev -13%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice crystal clear honey amber hue with a good half a finger head that faded to leave a thin light blanket and halo.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, caramel, acid, light metal, herbal, older hops. Not much going for the nose.

T - Taste is much more malt heavy than it should. Caramel, sweeter malts, faint faint bitter grapefruit, lightly vegetative. Definitely past its prime.

M - Mouthfeel isnt bad, lighter, smooth.

O - Overall, clearly not the freshest bottle. Bet this would have been much tastier fresh.

A: Hazy orange with a white head.

S: Orange, maybe some peach and mango in the nose.

T: Malt, orange, some tangerine, and pine.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: Delicious, though not quite the beast Son of Wrath is. Definitely worth a try. I think this beer is way underrated.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is lots of citrus: orange, mandarin, lemon and grapefruit.
The taste starts with a strong pine bitterness, moderated by the malt, but still finishes with a dry pine bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A delicious IPA.
