3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle. Strong pine and citrusy aroma. Substantial off-white head with good lacing and a deep orange color. Pine and floral hops up front with a sweet malt finish. Medium body, low carbonation. Overall, a little lacking in in the full array of flavors you expect from a good IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
A grassy, pine forward nose with hints of floral and citrus. Pours a clear orange-ish-amber with a rapidly disseminating off-white foam and abuntent lacing. The taste is firmly hop driven. Grass, pine, coupled with floral notes and hints of malt sweetness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a rewarding IPA whose taste is anything but one demintional.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Bier Stein in Eugene. Pine, caramel, herbs. Copper/orange color with a thick off-white head. Heavy caramel initial, grapefruit. Flavors level off in mid palate and final. Some alc. warmth. Heavy, near sticky, body. Overall, pretty good. Doesn’t have the continuing knockout flavors that many imperials do.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is floral and ciitrus hops. The taste is well balanced hops and sticky sweet malts but unfortunately there is also a skunky off-taste that reminds me of wheat gone bad. Not sure if I just got a bad glass of this stuff or if it always tastes like this. It was pretty good otherwise but the off-taste ruined it for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, caramel, toffee, hints of grass into a bit of earth, pretty sweet smelling. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, hints of grass into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight spice, finishing bitter. Just ok.
