A - Holy foamy head batman. This is getting rated a two. Why? Because I'd be upset if I made a beer that looked like this. The head is four fingers of infected foam. There are yeast floaties emitting streams of bubbles, and the body looks carbonated like champagne. Minus the floaties and giant head, I guess it looks decent. Like a hazy, bronze IPA. If Jolly Pumpkin did an IPA, it'd look like this.
S - Reasonable, floral hops. A perfumey mixture of sweet yeast notes and grassy hops. No real malt noted in the nose.
T - The head is still three fingers but I'm diving in. Y'know... this isn't bad. I thought it was gonna be infected, but... I guess it's just a little wild. Tastes mostly of bitter, metallic, earthy hops with a slight twinge of beefy malts. Not particularly the best put together IPA I've ever had. The more I drink it, the more I taste random off flavors.
M - Soda. Fizzy.
D - Uff.
Notes: How come Liberator was so damn good?

This is the featuted draft at Manny Browns in Langhorne PA. The color is a golden hue a lot like most In its style. The smell is very faint and inoffensive This is a very good IPA. Well balanced hops. Nothing too flashy as well so I can't way it is world class, but very solid.

A - Murky gold with one finger of soapy off white head, a little spotty lacing
S - Caramel malt, orange juice an big grapefruit, some pine,
T - There is such a huge toasted nutty malt flavor to this its shocking. Some mild pine and grapefruit juice come through, its mildly hoppy.
M - Bitter a little soapy and chewy.
O - This should for sure be classified as an English IPA, the toasted nutty malt taste makes it feel like a brown ale, but its mildly hoppy. Nothing extravagant.
