3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Standard Market, June. Cloudy amber color, a spongy head just a pinky finger wide. The PNW hops can be easily detected while the glass is still on the counter, growing in orange citrus character. Nose has more fresh hops up close. Taste is an upfront punch of orange juice and pine needles, and heavily bitter. More prickly carbonation. The strong hop palate remains as an afterburn.

Aroma is soft and sweet oranges, grapefruit and tropical notes overall. Taste is really tropical fruits deluxe. Really up there with sweet and ripe fruits ready for picking. Soft carbonation, maybe even a little low on carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice aroma of fresh citrus, grapefruit, slightly catty in a good way. Light orange color with a fluffy white head. Sweet malt up front. Lots of citrus orange, on the sweet side, almost starburst sweet. Bitterness cuts in but not enough. Somewhat piney with a bit of spice. Finish is slightly stronger than mild bitterness that lingers a bit. Light to medium mouthfeel. O.k.

Pours a foggy orange with a big frothy off white head that lingers, leaving tons of lacing. Aroma is big citrus and pine. Flavor is surprisingly sweet for an IPA, but has a smooth mildly bitter finish. Very tasty.

Poured from the can of several six packs over the past couple of weeks. Hazy amber orange with dark tornado, taste is gritty grapefruit, creamy, sticky, and smooth. This is a very drinkable brew and I canít wait to uber to the taproom and try some more of their wares.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had it out of a can. The aroma is just like they describe, citrusy, and piney. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a white head and the taste is very malty but not overpowering, I donít know bout the biscuits though.

Tasted from a 12oz. can. It poured a murky orangish amber hue with a big frothy head. Wet pine and hop aroma. Bitter hop taste with notes of citrus fruit. The malt provides a nice balance.

Aroma is pine, citrus/fruit and a big hint of bitterness. The flavor is grapefruit, fruit, mild sweetness, malts and a mix of tart and increasing bitterness in the finish. Not as bitter as the aroma made me expect, it was still among the more bitter ales Iíve had.
