3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rogue Wet Bar, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite dry and full of piney hops. Flavour brings out dry piney hops, floral notes and fairly harsh astringency on the finish - just enough crisp biscuity malt to back. Quite drinkable and thirst-quenching, but nothing overly interesting. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
FROM NOTES: August 7, ’12
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a shaker glass.
A: Hop forward, with much citrus, some pine and floral notes, with just a hint of malt sweetness in the background.
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.
T: A stronger hop presence than in the nose, but still not a hop bomb with lots of malty sweetness in the flavor.
P: Pretty heavily bodied, hoppy, crisp and bitter.
O: An undistinguished IPA in the plethora of the style

Vicious head - be careful when pouring - very pungent distinct piney taste. I liked it better on tap than out of bottle. Bottle is way over carbonated. Good change of pace though. Cheers.

Nice looking amber pour. Aroma is big piney NW hops with solid sweet malt tones. The flavour is all hops, finishing quite bitter. Not much malt complexity, but nice hop profile. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the World Craft Beer Tasting 2013 in Osaka. Intriquing sweet fruity nose, orange blossoms and lemon. Decently hoppy initial / very mild and balanced in mid / fades out in final w/o much in the way of hop tracks. Nice aroma and a subtle sweetness. Good session IPA.

From IGA market in Sequim, WA. Pours a hazy amber with a nice sized off-white head. Sticky lacing rings. The nose is full hops with pine and citrus. Medium in body. Resin in the mouthfeel. Flavor is a good balance of caramel malts and the hops. Some bitterness in the finish, but mostly it is grapefruit. Solid IPA. Good.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aromas of resin, citrus. Massive amounts of carbonation with huge pillowing white head, great lacing, hazy Amber in color. Malt, caramel, bitterness, tropical fruit, floral flavors I imagine this isn’t very fresh and would probably be pretty tasty fresh, another reason I wish it was dated.
