This one poured a bright orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of oranges, marmalade, grass and spruce and caramel. Flavor was mild caramel bas with a nice fruity and floral hops profile, but not very biing at all. A solid IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle shared by brew3crew (I think). Pours a dark golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma had citrus, light pine, bready malts, bubble gum, light floral and some alcohol. The flavor was more dry herbal, bready malts, hints of citrus, lingering bitterness. Not much in the way of flavoring hops.

I think the problem here is that I’ve had so many truly wonderful IPAs over the past few days. Pours blonde without ok head and lacing. Booze is pretty heavy in aroma and the beer doesn’t come together super well. Average carbonation. On tap at Black Back pub.

By far, my favorite 10 Barrel brew. Pacific Northwest beers often seem to focus primarily on hops. As an IPA freak, I love hops (whether for bittering, flavor, or aroma) but I believe it’s paramount to compliment those hops with a solid grain/malt bill. I think 10 Barrel did a great job at making a beer with an aggressive amount of hops. This beer is bitter and I love it and later hop additions did give it a nice citrus/pine aroma. But just as important, the malt flavor comes through giving the beer a subtle roasty flavor. Overall, the combo makes this IPA extremely drinkable and borderline addictive.
