2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Caramel and butterscotch is the first thing i detect, this must be a hell of an ipa. Traces of pine and earth, but its more so soapy caramel and some tea like astringency. Fail or old.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Copper colored, fairly clear, moderate foamy off-white head, nice lacing, moderate carbonation.   Looks pretty good.   Slight cerealesque aroma, minor earth.   Anything hop associated is very muted.
Perhaps a smidgen of citrus peel.   On the tongue its much better than I expected, with the earthy/grainy aspect I so commonly associate with "organic" being softer than usual.   Does have a moderate sweetness, slight
citrus peel aspect, with a good malt base.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes more on the malty side, hops have faded.   A little earthy, barnish, soily, with a little bit of honeycomb like cereal on the exit.
Tiz okay, less "organic" like than their other offerings, but not as bitter or IPA like as I would have hoped.   Enjoyed it more than I thought I would tho.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is pine, citrus hops, grassy, grainy with a hint of malts on the back end. Appearance is a golden/ amber with a medium sized white head that lingers around for quite a while. Taste is hops, earthy, some nutty malts, grassy, and a light amount of burnt quality. Palate is nice;y clotting with an aftertaste of light grassy hops. OVerall, Decent brew. Not the best IPA that I’ve had, but if offered I would definitely accept it. Cheers!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on 5/7/2009. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with good retention. The aroma is citrusy and piney hops and iced tea. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are floral and grapefruity. Decent carbonation. Kind of muddy tasting. The hop bitterness is not balance by the malts. Not really enjoying this one, can’t quite place why, but its not working for me, perhaps it the muddy taste or the vegetative aspect of the fresh hops. It’s been in the fridge awhile so maybe that is a factor as well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

22oz bottle acquired in trade with Floydster - thanks! Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of fresh green hops, citrus, and I was getting a lighter butteriness. Tastes of fresh floral green hops, citrus, and a little earthy. Body on the thinner side.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Like seems to be with most of the Butte Creek beers I’ve tried, not even close to being a clean beer. Aroma is a mess of spicy hops and caramel. Taste is first a bit of butterscotch and malt and hops come in second. I like the hops and there there is a nice bitter finish, but they could do much better. I hope.
