3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The menu calls this an ever evolving ipa, so maybe it is different each time. The beer I had was a burnished golden color with a sticky off white head. Sweet citrus nose of tangerines and manderin orange. Lots of orange juice and grapefruit zest in the flavor over a subtle malty backbone. Sweet and light and hoppy. Tastey beer but not a strong pnw ipa.

Poured on draft. Somewhat hazy copper color with a sticky white head of foam. Aroma is fruity like a bunch of mangos and grapefruit. Taste is sweet and bitter in a nicely balanced way. Finish is bitter, as expected. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A quite nice IPA +++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium amber color with a medium sized creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy orange and pine with notes of sugar and caramel. The flavor was very bitter yet had an underlying sweetness with intense pine an resin and moderate caramel. The finish was long with sweet pine and resin. The beer really coats the tongue. Moderately full bodied. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, orange-gold colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy grapefruits with some light resins and pines along with some florals. Lightly sweetened crystal malt in the background as well. Flavor is similar. Juicier citruses up front with a good amount of grapefruits and a few oranges. Light resiny pines and florals with a touch of earth. A light crystal and a hint of caramel malt as the resins grow just a touch into the finish where this ends dry with a medium-light, piney and earthy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a light carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA. Nice citrusy hopping with a balanced bitterness and light malt sweetness. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Nice floral quality to the nose. A bit of pine sol on the tongue without the bitterness. I was hoping this one would pack a bit more of a punch.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Spot on and serviceable, not as promising as it sounds, seven hop varieties and all. Lacey. Little aroma. Big bitterness at 82 IBU. Their pale was more enjoyable.
