4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: hazy amber with two fat fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: citrus, pine, pale malt, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5)
Well balanced A/IPA with bright citrusy and piney hops, and just enough pale malt to support, without any suggestion of malt forwardness. Solid and pleasant. (16/20)

650ml brown bottle. A nice looking beer - deep golden colour, light haze, long lasting white foam. Nose has pine, citrus and a lot of fruitiness. Taste has a light malt backbone with citrus, pine and fruity hops. Dry end with yeasty notes, piney aftertaste, mild bittering. Overall a well put together IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drafft on tap at Naked Wines (Bend, OR). Pours a decent hazed glowing amber hue. A bit darker, lively bubbles through the body with frothy whitish head atop. A decent layer, subtle frothy ringer laces nice enough. A fall sunset glow on the bottom and edges. Aromas are pithy and bitter, a firm hop profile is citric, grapefruit and florals with a bit of caramel malt, bread and earthy bitterness. A subtle tropical waft, faint guava and bitter fllorals. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a touch of body but not sweet. Bitter lemon and grapefruit meet a kiss of tropicala life, firmer floral bitterness and some fuzzy bitterness. A bit of earthiness, biscuit and subtle carmelized appeal. Bitter florals, a touch of stale dried florals, tapering grapefruit and earth. Finish is dry, sufficient bitterness and fruity jabs. A touch more body and some mellow dulled life. Green and leafy bitter hops, florals. Solid stuff, I think. A touch sweeter, not as big of a popping hop presence but certainly a doable, fresh and well crafted IPA.
