Absent aroma... Clear amber in color... Toffee, metallic flavor with fruity notes, off rotten hops... Not impressed

On draft at the brewery. Little aroma. Taste of hops starts with a burst but quickly dissolves to a vaguely bitter then dry finish. Meh.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours way, way darker than Iíd ever like to see an IPA be. Aromas of butter cookies, nutmeg. Taste is sweet and sticky gingerbread and dirt. Fuck this dumpster juice.

Draught. Orange with white head with coating lacing. Full fruity aroma. Flavour is midway between an IPA and a Cape Ale. Very good and satisfying. Seek this out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep robust amber, bronze and copper coloured body with a hint of brown and a thick, five centimetre tall tan head - beautiful! Aroma of fresh hops, earth, malt, apples, pears and a touch of metal - not so much hops though. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour with a hint of alcohol, some light fruitiness with a lot of caramel and toffee sweetness and a hint of earthy and herbal hops - not much at all though. Overall, a decent beer - more malt than hops and showing some good complexity from fruit and sugars more than hops. Nice to try, but not as good as I had hoped bringing it back home. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$4.15 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 15-June-2013.

Smells hoppy, floral and a little yeasty. Looks amber, dark amber.Thin white head. Hoppy as fuck with a bit of barnyard tart feel. Heavy heavy. Good but hea-vy.

Bottle. Pours amber, smells like an amber, and tastes like an amber. Not impressed for itís style. There is a slight hop bite, but really this doesnít represent a west coast ipa.

Bit of a gusher. When it finally calms down, it pours golden copper, with a nice sizey white head. Big citrusy aroma, with a bit of honey and caramel Flavor is hop forward, which is to be expected. Dry, woody finish.

22 oz bomber thanks to Matt: Pours a nice golden yellow with a good white head. Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus hops. Nice mellow IPA with a good bitter finish. Nice dry aftertaste of grapefruit that lingers. This one is a palate wrecker though as the flavor really lasts after you are finished drinking. Good example of a West Coast IPA but could be just a bit more sprucy and sweet for my preferences.
