As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottleworks, Seattle; 8.9% ABV
Hazy golden color with compact head. Caramel and resiny hops aroma, mild, a bit dusty. Good body strength, but lean mouthfeel; strong caramel and toffee flavor with strong resiny hops, a touch of peanuts, some hop fruitiness. Some alcohol.
Not extremely fresh, but a good beer anyway.

Bonus from a recent trade. Sticky pine hop aroma and flavor. Chewy malt and candi sugar sweetness. Straight orange color. Remind a me of an orange cream sickle or one of those candy slices. Finish has a touch of spice bit a ton of pine hops again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber c/o Elise split with Anndiesel. Filtered orange-tan body. Foamy, glass lacing white head. Clean and lovely IIPA. Lots of hop depth, as you might expect looking at the hop bill. The English malt sort of shows, and gives it some added chewiness, heft. Juicy tangerine, orange, pink grapefruit. Pretty solid IIPA.

Bottle form LetsPour. Pours crystal clear orange with a large off white head that is creamy, dissipates slowly, and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pine, passion fruit, dank grapefruit. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, dank and tropical happiness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness. Nice effort.
