3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, effervescent dark amber (SRM 120 body.....nose is citrus, resin, light allium, grass, light toasted malts, balance to the hops........taste is slightly sweet, with light floral honey notes from the malts, pine, resin, citrus notes, with light allium from the hops, finishing with a moderate, lingering hop bitterness......mouth feel, light of medium body, slight alcohol, high carbonation with mild acid. This is a quite typical American IPA. The light malts are typical of the newer style of IPA which completely showcase the hop variety and complexity. The only flaw is the light allium (onion, chive, garlic, leek) tones, which are a function of the amount of hops used, the types of hops, and the conditions of each years individual harvest. After all hops are a natural product with attendant variability. BJCP 8/3/14/5/7

AROMA: Spruce, grass hop.

TASTE: resinous hops, light on the tongue
PALATE: On the light side, very drinkable, lively carbonation, slightly long bitter finish.
OVERALL: I was impressed with this beer, I had it once before and remember liking it (no notes, after many drinks). I feel this beer would be better fresh. This bottle may be a bit older.
