4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" in Salem OR
This IPA does appear a lighter colour than normal..a deep golden..with what has to be the most attractive head i have seen in a proper IPA,..about an inch thick,tightly bubbled and quite uniform.
Very very intense hop aromas..as said in the intro..weird combination of bright citrus peel and normal PNW dankness..but it works.
Taste is similar to aroma but much more effervescent grapefruit ( pink) in the end.
Lovely mouth feel..intense yet at the same time light and quaffable ( yes i used That word).
Very good IPA ..loving this.

Flavour brings out loads of fresh grapefruit zest, uber fresh piney hops, and some sharp zesty biscuity malt providing just enough backing.

Bottle shared at a private tasting. Pours a hazy amber with a thin fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy, pine, herbal, resin hops. The taste is very bitter... resin, citrus, pine hops. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Rogue in Gastown in Vancouver. A nice copper amber color with moderate pale head. Faintly fruity on the nose. In the mouth the first impression is sweet, then sour, then bitter, followed by malt and more bitter, all in quick succession. Wow! As complex an IPA as I’ve ever tasted. 3.9.
