3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost tastes like a tincture that's been expanded. IPA flavor almost too much (not that it's been overhopped but just maybe tastes too thick)? I don't know, it's good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled July 2015
A steady pour into my cup produces a fat, one-finger thick, light tan colored head. The beer is a copper / pale-amber color that shows a clear, lighter version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma has a nice hoppiness to it, with a focus on lychee, ruby-red grapefruit zest, spruce tips, green pine, and lots of sweet, ripe citrus zest and even a touch of guava aromatics.
Solidly bitter, and the beer is on the cold side, which plays up the bitter bite that lingers from start to finish. Ripe green pine needles meld with ruby-red grapefruit, juicy guava, ripe tangelo zest, some woody spruce tips, and soft, woody astringent notes. The malt character plays a definite supporting role here, but still contributes soft flavors of English biscuits, a touch of pale toasted nutty notes, and a bit of chewy, whole grain cracker character. The body of this beer has a light viscosity to it, this is not quite as refreshing as a paler, more "west" coast version of an IPA, but is also not on the heavy side for an IPA.
A more than serviceable IPA; enjoyable, hoppy, and fresh, it certainly hits the spot.

Draft - Piny and grapefruit hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Light citrus hops and a dry finish. Something lacking here, the citrus hops aren’t very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (22oz). Mostly clear amber. Medium head. Kind of sweet. I would call this an average IPA but not on my regular buy list.
