Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and fruittiness. Palate was medium boidied and smooth with a lightly dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Clear, brilliant golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Biscuity, citrusy aroma with lesser notes of pine and honey. Medium-bodied and mildly chewy with prickly carbonation. Leans just a hair on the bitter side of balance. Lengthy, mildly bitter, dry finish. A well-balanced, nicely crafted, PNW style IPA. A very pleasant surprise, this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from total wine. Orange color wtih an off white head. Aroma is sweet and sticky for an IPA. Taste is watery, too sweet and too malty. This one would be so much better with some more hops. This one is overrated IMO.
