3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice slightly hazy copper coloured body with a large, soapy off-white head that sticks up nicely, around three centimetres. Aroma of fresh herbal and slightly earthy hops with a touch of pine in the mix and a solid base of malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong, grassy, herbal and piney hops at the front end with a good malt balance and a slight bitter and metallic note near the end. Aftertaste is nice with a lot of hops, some pine, a bit of grapefruit all meshed around the light alcohol flavour and a stronger malt backbone. Overall, a rather nice IPA - showing a ton of hop characteristics, a lot of bitterness all with a solid backbone of malt. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Super Jr Market (BestDamnBeer Store) in San Diego, California on 06-May-2012 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2012.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber on copper with persistent peanut foam. Grass, resin, pine, and hints of pepper on the nose. Malt rides second string. Flavor is bitter with plenty of sweet crystal malts and a bit of alfalfa flavors. Simple flavor. As it warms it becomes more one-dimensional. Medium bodied with reserved carb and a dry finish. Meh, I’d drink in a pinch, but wouldn’t pick over many others.

Flaske: Orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Kedelig duft af gammel humle med en smule citrus. Helt klart gammel med en støvet humlesmag og ok bitterhed. Kunne forestille mig en re rate på en nyere flaske.

On draught at fanno creek nano beer fest - pours a nice cloudy copper color with thick white head. Nose is of hop, pine, and some floral aroma. Taste is not as hoppy as expected, more grapefruit taste than hop. Has dry bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled @ Beer Temple. Hazy to cloudy amber color, short head, loads of yeast floating around. You don’t see that much often in American brews, that much yeast cake. Aroma of soft grapefruit and pine, some malt. Medium bitter, hint of sweetness. Easy drinker actually, but it didn’t excite me that much.
