3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish orange with a minimal lighter off white head. Light lace left. The aroma is a sweet fruity hoppiness, with nothing else detectable. The flavor is a little sweet on the front, with a decent hoppiness and a rather disappointing level of bitterness. The mouth feel is really thin, and the flavors seem to disappear as soon as you stop drinking. Not overly bad, but nothing special by any means.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 12 fl oz can. Pours a clear copper-amber with a fluffy, lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of pine, lemon, crusty bread and flowers. Taste is caramel sweetness at first before a crisp pine resin/lemon zest bitterness sweeps through. Orange and some malt towards the end. Lingering finish with a lemony aftertaste. Nice showcase for Simcoe hops. Great stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pine resin aroma with notes of tropical fruit. Pours amber colored with a decent tan head and a little lacing. Starts with sweet tropical fruit followed closely with a bit of hop bitterness. Finishes quite smooth for an ipa with pine resin flavor coming through strong on the finish. Pretty nice ipa.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from WA Australia. Pours a burnt copper amber with little head that turned me off at first. Forresty pine smelling with other forrest floral aromas. Sweet as it first hits your tongue before turning earthly bitter. Just how i like my IPAs. Will be having the whole six pack tonight, love it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Produces a burnished copper and sparkling. Head is soppy, sudsy and depletes to a wafer of white. Levelled flat is the nose. Honey, toffee, piney and just plain pine forest with a mere whiff of lemongrass, butter, and menthol. Menthol, smoke, burnt rubber, toffee and rough, damp, bitter herbs fulfil the palate. There is a lick of fruit but it is caramelised and bitter. Length is burnt, acrid bitter citrus. Body is lean, juicy fruit juice in feel with very soft carbonation. Bitter finish doesn’t fit. Not fresh or a bad batch, but not the best in all aspects. (12fl.Oz can, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

I've liked everything I've had from Big Sky. I love IPAs. I should like this, but I don't. I can't place my finger on why I don't, but I don't have to justify myself to you. Don't act like you know me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Montana is beautiful first off and this beer is the same. Really nice dark amber color. Aroma is earth, grassy, exactly what I would expect a beer from Montana to be like. Taste is bitter with the same earthy grassy notes but it works. This isn’t like a west coast IPA or honestly any other one out there. It just kind of is its own thing and it think that’s what makes it so good. I’m loving this and definitely try this if you can get Big Sky.
