3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a shaker glass.
A: Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. Nice retention dissipates into some sudsy lace on the glass.
S: Hop forward, with much citrus, some pine and floral notes, with just a hint of malt sweetness in the background.
T: A stronger hop presence than in the nose, but still not a hop bomb with lots of malty sweetness in the flavor.
M: Pretty heavily bodied, hoppy, crisp and bitter.
O: An undistinguished IPA in the plethora of the style.

Cloudy amber color.great pungent hoppy aroma. Very complex flavor but overpresent hoppiness that is pleasant. Light pepper with a spicy pine boldness.

22oz Bottle. Deep hazed orange body, chalky head. Honey Mead are on nose with citrus hops. Smooth, cool body that does not punch much. Caramel tinged, sweeter IPA. Very tasty but not exactly what Iím looking for in this style.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bold orange hued amber body with a tall frothy tan head. Fresh grainy bread malt body. Dry malt backbone that is simple yet expressive with a selection of quality ingredients. A touch of toffee and light caramel. Bold sharp hop presence. High impact citrus character with a sharp kick of spice and peppery pine. Crisp finish that borders on the thin side but does so thoughtfully as the light malt punch lets the hops, which - simcoe and amarillo- are well chosen and compliment the base extremely well. I count myself lucky to have randomly chosen this beer for my 1000th rating.

Nice orange pour with a thin lacing head. Floral and bread notes. Some citrus rind alone with a little earth. Feels good in the mouth with a roundness from the malt. Skipís love of simcoe is apparent with the piney finish. A fine example of a west coast ipa

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pretty complex IPA...biscuity, fruity (peaches, mandarin oranges, apricots, even a hint of pears, graham cracker, lots of pine resin, very long finish.
I loved Skipís beers at Boundary Bay, I loved Skipís beers at Water Street, and I love Skipís beers at American Brewing!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Poured a deep sluggish orange color with good carbonation and a nice white cap
S: Bread and flowers pretty much sums it up
T: Flower bouquet with a big breadiness and some grains on the end, a medium bite from the hops on the medium to back end
M: A bit heavy and chewy, definitely not refreshing and easy to drink.
O: Average IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasty IPA with a solid malt backbone thatís loaded with caramel flavors. Lesser notes of toast and crackers. Hops are earthy, floral and herbal. Balanced bitterness. Fruity, too, with gummy elements of apricots, peaches and pears. Very drinkable and sessionable. I happily drink this beer wherever I see it.
