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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce can poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a moderately hazy copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has strong pine resin and some cardboard. Kind of smells like an old beer. The date on the bottom of the can is unreadable unfortunately. The taste is strongly bitter without much to balance it out. There is a moderately sugary nuance to the beer as well, but it is very mich overshadowed by the bitterness. Medium body and lower to medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
