3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. Another great Northwest IPA. Golden, clean pour. Floral hops and a touch of pine. Rich hoppiness that is on the citric-grapefruit end of things. Strong taste with appropriate and lovely mouthfeel. Great standard.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuity malts with vegemite and earthy flavours. Some citrus and peaches and spice and lots of great things going on. Not sure Iíd call it an IPA, but anyway that is a minor quibble.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A - Hazy orange brown. 1 finger head that sinks quickly.
S - Mandarin oranges are the first thing I smell. Soft pine mixed in as well. Bready pale malt.
T - Honey and lemon flavors that remind me of a cough drop. A very faint amount of citrus hops. A watered down bitterness. Infected?
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation.
This must be extremely old because this is not a great beer. The flavors are weak and watered down. Has an artificial taste to it. Iíll try it again and update the review.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden orange with a big lacing head. Lemon, biscuit and a bit of caramel on the aroma. Sweet malt character fades into a crisp citrus finish. Medium carbonation. A bit of residual bitterness. A very nice, sessionable beer but not too complex or extraordinary.

Pour a slightly hazy bright gold. Thin head with good lacing. Citrus hops aroma. Refreshing, flavors not too complex. Some lingering bitterness and astringency.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow straw, orange color with white head. Aroma is cereal and yeasty with very little hops. Possibly old? Not very inviting. Taste is bland with some cereal taste and some hops. Hops show up a little more as it warms. Decent but nothing to revisit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle pours orange and hazy with patchy lacing. Mild floral and citrus hop aroma with herbs/spices. Light to medium body and clean and crisp feel. Grassy herbal flavor with medium bitterness. The finish is clean, bitter and dry. Itís OK.

Draft->shaker. Cloudy gold with frothy white head. Aroma and taste are citrus hops. Straightforward, bitter and dry. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 355ml bottle on 24/3/2013. Pours a cloudy goldent orange with a small foamy head. Has a slight fruity aroma, but really doesnít have a typical IPA aroma. The flavour is better, with some nice sweet citrus fruit up front and a very firm grapefruity bitterness at the back. Thereís not much malt to experience here. The carbonation is lively. I wouldnít necessarily complain if I had to down a few of these but as far as IPAs go, there are many better examples out there to be found.

Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is soapy citrus. Flavor is balanced to far to the bitter side and it is extremely dry.
