3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Maloneís Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. Moderate aroma of malt and hop. Decent malt flavor, strong hopping and strong bitterness, but somehow with stale qualities; the resins are still present, the fruits less. The final is also medium dry.
Powerful but not impressive.

Fruity, lightly spicy, blonde...the strength is quite evident, good balance though, clean pale malts, citrus, bitterness, just a nice balanced example.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head.
S: Smells pretty mediocre (and I might be a bit generous there). Some floral and lightly spicy hops with tons of bread and pale malts. A hint of citrus and even more sweetness, mostly toffee with a touch of caramel.
T: Fairly bready in terms of the malt flavor with some grassy hops and a light floral and citrus note. There is tons of toffee, a little bit of caramel, and a very stale feeling about the beer. Pretty "blah".
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Another lackluster IPA from the PNW, unfortunately. Wasnít a fan of this one.

A hazed golden DIPA with a thin creamy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, a great classic IPA with loads of piney and floral hops, citrus pulp. In mouth, a nice citrus pulp with light floral hops, light alcohol warmth, a bit on the light side, but good. On tap at Courtyard Marriott Portland, Oct. 5 2012.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy slightly pale orange color, medium to full sized creamy off-white head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, oranges and lightly mandarin. Taste malts, hops, tangerine, orange, bitter, some fruitpeel bitter, a hint of orangepeel especially in the aftertaste. Medium to full body, firm fizzy carbonation. Not bad at all, but the fizzy carbonation and the fruitpeel / orangepeel bitterness annoy me.
