4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into tulip glass, cloudy golden - orange with a medium sized head. Nose is very complex, smoky malty citrus, blood orange, with a hint of pine. Taste leans toward the sweeter side, but there is a real dryness to the finish that grabs me. Overall very good.

Snifter... Evening star Del Rey. Pours cloudy, hearty, caramel Amber. Virtually no head. Aroma isn't powerful, but if you get close and take a nice sniff, you will enjoy. Pineapple, vanilla, fresh. First sip emphasized quality over quantity. Going to grow on you as you sip.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - is very resinous buried deep below is a caramel malt. There is the presence of alcohol as well.
Appearance - is an orange copper body with a thick white head that falls quicker than expected to just a slight foam - minor lacing.
Taste - is full of bodacious pine resin - slightly oily big Pacific Northwest Hops - Cascade, Chinook really shine hear. The malt is muted. This is more of the classical IPA variety. There is no citrus decipherable in this beer.
Palate - body is medium, texture on the oily approach, the carbonation average, the finish bitter and medium in length.
When I entered into craft beer, this was what you came to expect from an IPA, pine not citrus. It’s not for the timid.
