3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells hoppy but not as piney as cascade hops. Taste is hop forward yet well balanced. There isnít a bad bitter aftertaste, in fact some malt sweetness comes through. A solid apa.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is nearly a DIPA with itís fairly heavy body and too-obvious ABV. Super-murky medium-dark copper color with a pretty big white head. Aroma to my fairly stuffy nose is booze. Taste is citrus rind, some pine resin and a pretty serious malt background. The ABV being so obvious is too much for my taste. Itís definitely good, but not a fave.

Poured from the 6 pack of bottles cloudy orange with a 2 finger white collar, this is very easy drinking with some smooth hops and some bitter, nice 7+ alcohol, was gone fast.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is a nice fresh pine hops with some sweet caramel malt sweetness. I can already see where this one is going. Flavor is not as malt I as I was thinking it would be. Still Hops are here with a very minor presence. More sweet malt is felt after the swallow. I think I am officially IPA burnt out. I can barley get a hop presence from the recent beers Iíve had. Way more malt is showing up in these beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma is piney, lots of sweet malts, caramel, very fresh bread. Taste is malt forward, not hop aggressive, very mellow for an IPA. Overall, okay but wish it was a bit bolder.

"pine resin and earth mixed in the aroma and flavor. not my favorite type of malts for this beer, but is was a decent refreshing ipa. light-medium bodied. amarillo hops are nice, but this is a one trick pony - a session ipa. trade from WI beer mafia!"
