3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Tippe & Drague. Pours dark orange with thick creamy very lacey head. Aroma is mildly sweet malt. Taste is medium caramel malt with big juicy citrus hop flavors. Notes of orange, passion fruit, lemon, and grapefruit. Bitter on the finish. Sizable abv for a standard IPA. Honestly not a standout among excellent WA IPAs, but not at all bad.

Berries and caramel. Bitter caramel, apricot, apple, biscuit, pine, weed, hoppy finish. Nice ipa with a rich hop/caramel character.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt golden orange with a big white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a whole lot of messy lacing all over the place.
The smell had a huge caramel maltiness with a little bit of grassy hops in the background.
The taste was mainly malty sweet and had a fairly decent caramel aftertaste with a lingering sweet malty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a huge sessionability about it. Probably could pound this all day.
Overall, I say this was honestly an okay IPA, seemed like it came across more of an EIPA as the hops were extremely subdued. Still do - able.

12oz can picked up at Total Wine
Clear dark golden with a medium sized off-white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of caramel and dusty. Taste is malty, caramel and pine resin
Average, tastes old but looking at the other ratings it sounds like the norm for this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Jaune - cuivre avec un petit col tan. L’arôme d’houblon assez simple. Un peu du malt dans le goût mais plutôt d’houblon assez amer. Un bon IPA mais assez simple.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. An almost copper red, clear. Great head on pour and some nice lacing. Mildly hoppy nose. Some dry hopping comes through on end of sip, but otherwise a subtle IPA with well-disguised ABV.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle thanks to GCurlow. Somewhat malty with muted hop presence. Not sure if this is freshness issue or how it really is. Comes up short as a West Coast IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Clear redder medium copper, fading tan foam. Promising tropical fruity aroma is short lived. Bitter hoppy taste, earthy, dirty and floral, slightly sweet toasted caramel malt. Average carbonation, medium bodied, aggressively hopped. Gets grapefruity later on, finishes long and bitter. Could be designated an Impy. Paired well with Game 5. (Congrats L.A.!) DNFL (Definitely Not for Lagerboys)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark golden under a tight white head. Fruity bitter nose of apricot and banana and slightly herbal hop resins. Flavor has a slightly acidic and herbal hop start that melds into an earthy and spicy malt finish. A bit woodsy and grassy too. Meh.
