3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper pour - fairly sweet throughout, but at least it is a clean sweetness of lightly caramelized sugars that does not interfere with the hop character, which is the star of the show here - hops are lightly earthy, with fairly strong notes of pine and bright citric character that linger long into the finish - a bit sweet for me, but a solid IPA.

Multiple hops were used brewing this beer and you can taste that. Very bitter but still in a very drinkable way. Smooth with good CO2 content, you taste hops thats all. (Houston 201205)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Elk Grove location. Dark amber / copper color with little white head, but great lacing down the glass. Aroma is resinous and floral hops. Flavor has some light caramel sweetness with good resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall I was impressed with this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark gold with a small head that settles into a thin cap, but leaves good lace. Nice sticky aroma of floral resin, a touch of pine, and perhaps some lemon and/or orange. Flavor is nice and full and just as hoppy as any IPA fan can ask for. Starts nice and grapefruity with a stern bitterness, melting into a resiny pine and floral bitterness, ending floral and sticky. The maltiness is sweet and caramelly, but quiet. Quiet enough to let the hops be the star, but present enough to balance. Quite the understated IPA. Full and hoppy.

Amber color in the glass it has a an aroma of pine and malts. The taste had bitterness but not a good balance of other flavors. Average IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, decent IPA. Not a heavy hoppy aroma, and not heavy hoppy flavor, but good brew. Balanced, some hop taste, good lacing, and hoppy bitter finish.
