1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Single bottle. Average aroma, decent orange pour. Lousy balance; too much malt, not enough hops; lacking in bitterness. Gritty finish. Utterly forgettable. But hey, itís organic! Yawn.

I had this a long time back and somehow it didnít get rated. This was a pretty standard IPA for me, and just a tad on the under-hopped side.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a thin white head. Nose is a little bitter with a hint of citrus in there. Taste is somewhat bitter, but balanced well enough. Meh for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The alcohol is actually 6.0% and it is brewed in Ukiah not Berkeley ( it was started in Berkeley) The description on this site says this is a winter seasonal but it would make a better summertime IPA. Light and easy drinking. Good for a float trip if it came in cans.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Yeah Burger V. Highlands. This is a pretty generic IPA that is not worth the extra buck - unless you really need organic beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, citrus - piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness with citrus - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light frutiness with citrus - piney hoppynes, light alcohol. OK dryish IPA. In the finish hoppyness gets bit sharp.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber from Whole Foods. Clear, orange pour with a persistent, medium white head leaving heavy lace. Nose is pine and some citrus. Medium-light body with moderate, fine carbonation. Some pine, toast, not much else going on. This reminds me of the organic IPAs of several years ago: lightweight, lacking flavor and complexity, and overall rather unexciting. Skip it and try one of the other, much better, Bison ales.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours hazy orange with a large white head and decent lacing. Aroma is pine, grass and caramel. Flavor is pine, bread, metallic notes with a light bitter metallic finish. Not a good example of the style; muddled and unbalanced.
