3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Lemon, lime and barnyard aromas. Cloudy orange with a thin white head. Big citrus and sour notes. This is an awesome saison, but wait it is an IPA. I must have a mislabeled bottle because this makes no sense whatsoever.

Bomber. Pours hazy amber with white head. Nose of orange, pine. Flavour is same, has lots of caramel, finish is sweeter than average for a PNW IPA. Brings nothing new to the table but a fine beer.

Not bad for an IPA. Pours a very nice cloudy orange with a light white head. Smells fruity. Taste is not too hoppy, some apricot, and a slightly bitter finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark copper and amber coloured body with a nice and relatively small two centimetre thick tan head. Aroma of pungent hops of grapefruit, pine and citrus notes coupled with some good malt and a hint of sweetness. Medium-bodied; Deep malty and earthy flavour at first from the hops with some good fresh hop notes, some mild citrus flavours and a decent amount of earthiness - mostly from the hops. Aftertaste shows a good balance of hops and malt - with the dominance obviously floating towards the hops - showing a lot of pine and earthiness and a subdued sweet flavour with hints of apples and caramel. Overall, a nice beer and a great example of the style with a lot of dominance on the sweetness and earthier side of things. Great to sample and a fairly typical west-coast IPA! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$4.98 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 14-June-2013.
