3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed at a recent BA/RB tasting... Bottle poured orange with a thin, white head. Freshly hopped nose. Lots of hops in the initial flavor, but balanced nicely by the fruit and grain tones.

A golden brown beer with a nice frothy head. The aroma is sweet, and piney. The taste is very sweet-caramel, piney, and a slight bitter ending.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at brewery-i had this after my first sip of sculpin to compare the two. This beer is more traditional with quite a bit more malt than sculpin. deep copper hue (malt) with a sudsy white head. alot of malt and pine on the nose. nice piney hop flavors with a huge malt presence to back up this and balance everything out. I have never had this beer fresh before and it was a treat to finally have this nice sample. orange rinds on the finish! very nice! palate is great with a good balance of carbonation and mouthfeal-slightly slick. a bit of cheese on the nose as it warmed. a very nice IPA!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber color with plenty of carbonation. Generous white head with a nice amount of lacing on the glass. Inviting floral hop bouquet with grapefruit undertones. This is a medium bodied, easy drinking, IPA that has a nice balance. There is a smooth, yet not too hoppy, finish.

Pours a rich golden yellow. Aroma of bread, hay, and nuts. Taste is very hoppy much like a good pale ale. Nothing extra special but overall a good pale ale that pleases the palate.

Herbal aroma with citrus hops. Amber and hazy appearance with with a frothy tan head. There is a medium to heavy sweetness for an IPA hith a light bitterness. It’s very lively on the palate, I even taste some apple notes. A little sweet for me, but very good overall.

This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was a medium amount of citrusy hops and some herbal notes as well. Flaovr was somewhat mild, very smooth hoppy flavor, but not overly bitter and a bit salty as well.

Crisp, clean, refreshing IPA highlighted by lemon and other citrus flavors. Not so syrupy that you’ll get full having a few of these, and not so dry that you’ll pucker out after a bottle. Just an easy drinking, very enjoyable IPA.
