Standard ipa. Nice enough fresh with fruit and pine slightly forward. I preferred multiple session and imperials to this one, though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange, white head, ring lacing. Mild nose for the style, some floral, citrus rind. Flavor is great, caramel malt and orange-y hops. A nice level of sweetness, more than usual (fpr the style). Overall a rock solid west coast IPA. Flavors aren’t as huge as some, but it’s clean finishing and dangerously sessionable.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Well this beer is very mild for an IPA if you ask me. Aroma is faint, color is a fairly clear copper, and a rather mild hop flavor. It’s drinkable but not memorable.

Drank in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big nose of citrus and caramel. Very smooth, well-balanced, citrus, loads of oranges, dry caramel and balance from the malt. Good. Clean.

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Some ring lacing with time. Citrus aroma. Med body. Flavor seems very citrus and clean over an interestingly roasted malt. Finishes nicely, very bitter with maybe a touch of unusual floral. Nice drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 16 oz sample on tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. Herbal, somewhat oniony and piney hop aroma. I?m not a big fan of the oniony hop character from the likely Summit hops used in this beer. Unfiltered moderately hazy copper-orange colored body with a creamy, off-yellowish head and good lacing. Starts with plenty of resiny citrus orange flavors. Has a good deal of mildly sugary maltiness in the middle. Finishes with piney and oniony hop bitterness. Nicely balanced beer, but as mentioned earlier, I am not a big fan of the hop profile.©©©©©©©rerate©©©©©©© this beer has lost the onion, and is now mostly citrus and dank. Great balance. Great IPA.
