3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the tap at Big River to a golden-reddish color with medium thick off white head that lingered to mid-glass and left good lacing. Nose was the expected hoppy citrus (grapefruit) but with a pronounced presence of malty earth scents. Mouthfeel was full and tingly, but again slightly offset by malty sweetness. The bittersweet hops and malts combinred for a pleasing taste, and the finish was long and enjoyable.

On tap at Big River Grille downtown. This rivals any American-style IPA I’ve tried. Solid malt background, but Cascade hops are at the forefront of this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap near brewery. Aroma is American hops with a decent amount of caramel malt. Nicely dry-hopped aroma remains throughout the drink and keeps enticing me back to the glass. I don’t know that I would call it aggressive, but it is certainly representative of standard American IPA and is of good quality.

I think this is what I had. It was in a can. It has a mild flowery aroma the taste is pretty bland up to the finish which has a nice citrus rind bitterness.

3 oz sample. Deep copper in color. Tons of cascade, which I love. If that’s your thing great, if not, its over the top.
