4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle, finally available in Seattle. Pours darkish pale golden with thick fluffy head. Aroma is fresh hops with notes of pine and grapefruit. Taste is crisp light caramel malt with big juicy hops. Sweet citrus and punchy bitter fresh hop notes. Delicious IPA, could easily pass for a fresh hopped version. Pretty impressive out of the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Moderately dark golden color. Curious hops--aroma isn’t your typical type of pine resin, and the citruses aren’t your typical grapefruit. Not the happiest of IPA experiences I’ve ever had. Bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden orange with just a touch of haze, one-finger white head and very nice lace. Sharp citrus and pine hops up front supported by bready malts. Flavor features crisp hop bitterness with grapefruit, orange and pine only partially offset by a caramel sweetness. Medium body and carbonation, wonderfully creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp bitter finish.

Very well balanced and true to the description. Malt is smooth and hops piney and citrusy. Bitterness is present but restrained with a pleasant mouth feel. This is a very enjoyable ipa, could have several of these.
