65th review on BA
bottle to pint

App- Dark caramel brown a bit of orange highlights as well as a thin 1/4" in eggshell head. Dissapaited quickly.

Smell- Not overly complex a mild hoppy citrus.

Taste- The taste for me was very hoppy with a small citrus and spice note. Wasn't as big a taste as I thought it would be.

Mouth- Medium bodied with a nice balance on the palate.

Drink- Pretty good. I like the spice notes. It was a nice smooth drinking IPA.

Enjoy by date: Jun 19, 09

A- Pours dark orange/copper color with a thin white foam that leaves some lacing.

S- Floral hop nose with some citrus and pine scents. Light sweetness and some grain and malt present.

T- Piney hop taste initially with some citric esters and spiciness. Some sweet malt in the finish balances nicely.

M- Medium body with ok carbonation.

D- Pretty decent IPA that is crisp and well balanced. Victory's Hop Wallop is better but also quite a bit stronger.

A decent IPA that's a little too malty for my liking. There's some citrus, and just a hint of fruit, but this really drinks like a hoppy amber ale more than an IPA. I'd put in in the same class as Troegs Nugget Nectar.
