3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of the IPA day celebration at CCB. Pours a darker hazy orange on tap with a thin white head and little to no lacing. Aroma of hops, pine, and juniper berries. Taste is spicy and hoppy at the same time; the hops and juniper blend well to create a pretty clean mouth and smooth taste. It’s good, and the combo works well, kind of like a gin IPA.

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB. Profile similaire à la Jai Alai, pas mal de fruits exotiques, le tout est complété par l’usage de baies de genièvre. Houblon fruité restant doux avec une amertume en retrait,

Tap at Rattle n Hum: Orange pour with good clarity and an off white film of head. Unique spicy herbal aroma. Apparent juniper and grapefruit citruses. Oily and hoppy body with plenty of aggressive citruses and herbal juniper spiciness. Nice and dry with just enough malt back. The finish is long, piny and bitter.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a rating for "Twigs and Berries", a Cedar Aged Juniper IPA. Bottle from AskDrTodd - thanks! Aroma is that of gin and beer. There’s also some peppercorn in there. Flavor is a full tongue bitterness, with all kinds of floral notes. It’s like hops and gin together. Finishes clean, with the tongue wanting more. Pours copper with white head.

growler shared by SOLAN. Piney juniper on the nose with cedar and pine resin. Pours pale golden with a thin white head. Big juniper flavor, pine resins, cedar with heavy citrus notes. I like the over all flavor i just wish with juniper was turned down a couple notches.
