3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured this beer from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a semi-cloudy straw and amber color with a good-sized foamy white head with average lacing and cling and low retention. It had a sour citrus and floral hops aroma with some pine notes and lighter touches of fruit, grain, and spice. Its taste had a good bitter grain and citrus blend along with some lighter fruit and sour flavors. The body of the beer had good fizz and life with above-average carbonation, and was a touch dry with an average thickness and mouthfeel.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I thought I did this one before, oh well, here goes. Big clear yellow pour from a bottle, but there is some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Thin 1/4 inch head. Smell is fresh sharp IPA hops fer sure. First taste seem rather mild, just for a nano second then it pours on the bitter sharp bite, wew. Yes, big slap in face ensues. Not too sure what to think of this nasty mess, that is, a nasty mess for a lager lover. Way too much for my girlie taste buds. So bitter, it almost makes my gag reflexes kick in towards the end of the session. Did I say wew? Rototilling across my tongue wew? If there is any co2 in this, the taste was so distracting that I couldn’t recognize any.

This is a very fresh Ipa, nice bright golden colour with a nice white head. A light scent of sweet mango. Fresh in taste with citrus and hops. A bitterness that could be longer. Overall very nice. I’ll buy this one again.

Gold in color with a good sized off-white head. Aroma is of tropical fruit (mostly mango and papaya), citrus, caramel, and light florals. Taste is of pineapple, papaya, grapefruit, a firm bitterness, and some resin.

Nice pice and citrus hops mix, typically west coast but not obnoxiously so. (I wouldn’t mind if it was though. Hazy yellow, very fine suspension. Classic bitter hop and hard malt contrast, this is balanced in a way that favors the hop 70/30, which is as it should be. It’s crisp, and while too dry to be refreshing, is very approachable. I’ve had a hundred-something good IPA’s, and here’s to a hundred more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has orange notes, pine cones and a faint maltyness. There’s lots of citrus in the flavor, with a nice bitterness and some malts. Full body, some warmth and a nice carbonation level. Mostly bitter finish, where there’s also some fruityness. A nice and tasteful IPA, although not the most complex one on the market. 140207

Classic IPA. Citrus forward. Pine. No resin. Highly drinkable. Bitter but not crazy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Now this one is nice, smooth, with a somewhat sweet yet pithy bitterness.   Decent balance, nice amount of sweetness.   A little floral, citrusy, resiny, pithy, and a touch earthy.   Solid example.   Lingering sweetness and bitterness.   Good IPA.

Tap on the island. Pours a nice gold with minimal head. Aroma is floral hops, lots of piney. Taste is similar, pine overrides all else but finishes floral and slightly bitter. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy orange color with a small loose head. The smell is mild citrus, fruit, biscuity malt. The taste is orange, biscuits, mild citrus, toffee ending tarry and fruity. Light+ in body with average carbonation. I didn’t care much for this bottle but perhaps it wasn’t a fresh bottle.
