3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a 2 finger foamy cream head with decent lacing. The nose is sweet malt and floral hops. The taste is light citrus hops and sweet malt with a touch of pine in the finish. Medium bodied. Mellow IPA and an easier drinker. Thanks Bill!

A good IPA with a decent balance of hops and malts. Better than I was expecting, but certainly not the best IPA around either.

aroma and flavor of earthy, organic hops without any citrus nonsense. meaty and substantial. nice to see a small brewery put some effort into the hop bill, not bad at all.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber - darker than many IPAs. White head that stacks then gets out of the way. Spicey hop aroma with slight citrus and grass perhaps just a bit of vanilla. Very big hop charge with a milky quality to the malt - nearly unbalanced by the strong hop flair. Better than some "just a lot of hops" attempts by smaller brewers.

Golden pour with nice white head. Nice citrus hoppy aroma with grapefruit. Very smooth hoppy flavor with a light bit of grass mixed in. Very well blended brew. I liked.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber color with a rocky off white head. MIld floral hop aroma. Very hoppy but very drinkable. Not harsh like some other pale ales out there. Hints of pine and a little malt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle smuggled by my friend Tony. Dark orange color with medium white head. Pine and malt with decent citrus. Not nearly as resinous as some of the other descriptions made me think it would be. Very pleasant and drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Deep cloudy orange brown color. Great malty sweet piny, slightly astringent hop aroma. Thick half inch head. Big malt and hop profile. Piny and resinous hop taste, which works quite well with the moderate ABV. Full of flavor and very drinkable, this is my kind of IPA.

From the girlfriend. Yeah, this is pretty good. Pours deep amber with a thin white head. Hoppy nose. Flavor is mild fruitiness with slight bitterness. Wish it were stronger, but oh well.
