Bottle from Craftshack, shared at Dadsgiving 2013. Pours an amber body with white head and lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and bitter hop. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of bread, sweet caramel malt, hop and spice. I’d love to try these IPAs fresh.

Bottle at Dadsgiving! Pours a faintly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Soft malt on the nose, a bit of sweetness and almost a vanilla tone. Medium-bodied, sweet and malty, toast, and a bit of citrus. Tasty enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at the 10th Bistro Wet Hop Beer Festival on Oct 6, 2013. This IPA pours a light to medium orange gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and hoppy. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy, floral and piney. Crisp and clean. Medium bitterness. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from MeadMe thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a brilliantly clear medium gold color with a huge bubbly off white head that persists forever and is fed by a constant stream of carb bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aromas of caramel and pine with a woody earthy edge. The flavor is as the aroma promised with a hint of sulfur and earthy tartness added in. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel. Decent drinker, nothing objectionable here, but nothing earth shattering either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance falls far short of the Chinook: no lace on my glass, precious little head. Tastes and smells like a generic hop. Earthy at the end, not too bitter, kinda boring. Generic IPA is generic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brew is a clear dark golden color with a medium foamy off-white head that burns away steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of herbal hops, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, caramel malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy and grainy aftertaste. Decent overall.
