3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. The hops are muted, very bready, malt focused, caramel notes are present. Needs more hops for me to enjoy this.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I love this IPA. Piney without being resiny but with a nice citrus overtone. Hops linger pleasantly. You could drink a few of these as it's balanced well between complexity and drinkability.

Another rather samey IPA, but this one had a little bit of a refreshing kick to it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: Clear, copper color with a white fluffy head and sticky lacing. Green fruit, compote, hops in the aroma. The taste is dry pine needles, a little musty. I was hoping it would be a little more apocalyptic, but a valiant effort from the little brewery that stands in the shadow the giant "Deschutes."

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: Poured a nice glowing orange color with good carbonation leaving a ncie white cap and lacing
S: Big hop forward nose; citrus and green veggies, almost like GUBNA eeeek
T: Immediate citrus, floral note with a spicey and Earthy note, a little toastiness as the beer progresses on the palate I get a fresh cut onion and veggie characteristic blended with citrus. the malt base is something lacking and off. I have never been a fan of Crystam malt in any IPA and the pairing of the Summit and Perle hops with this malt bill is unappealling
M: Blah, to hop forward, sordove oily, bitter
O: I had heard good things about this IPA. While it snot terrible I wont ever try this again

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
excellent grapefruit/citriusy aroma with slight hay notes and resin - pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow with lots of tight head - medium bodied with medium to heavy bittering - lots of grapefruit, little malt and flowery hops backnotes - finishes very well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate bubblegum citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex unbalanced beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks alright; a little dark for an IPA though. Smells pretty good; hoppy and malty. Tastes alright; a little bland though. Mouthfeel is average. A decent brew, but not a great one.
