3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. "First Growth". Pours a murky rust color with a smallish sandy head on top. An aroma of juicy oranges, rinds, caramel, mild pine, and some wet cardboard. Medium-bodied. The flavor starts with some toasty caramel and mild earthiness. Oranges, rinds, and a touch of grapefruits follow. There is an undercurrent of biscuitiness throughout. An IPA that definitely leans toward the maltier side.

On tap at the brewpub in Newport. Hoppy with a light malty sweetness in the background. A touch of earthiness. Resiny. OK IPA finish. Good brew but I was hoping for more wet hops flavor.

not quite feelin the love on this one. a little too thick and sweet for a wet hop ipa especially. some dirt malt in there too which is not a favorite. a little bitterness and pine on the back end, but not enough to save it. premium price too."

I was able to try a bit of this at the Eugene Brew Pub. It was very very hoppy, and I mean the good kind of hoppy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazed orange light amber color with a lingering off-white head. It’s a little dark here in Small Bar in central San Diego, so forgive the appearance description if it’s not entirely accurate. A lot of lacing around the edges of the glass appear as the beer is consumed. The bouquet is comprised of citrus and heavy cream. This flavor is difficult to describe. Sweet lemon esters. Everything blends well. The first few pulls yielded some harshness at the finish. I had some Stone PTSD. But, everything blended and got smoother as I worked my way through it. There might be some apricot in there. Midlle of the road. Maybe just a little north of that.
