3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample at IBGWF 12. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour and earthy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex bitter flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This beer met my expectations.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Sour lemon malt and light citrus peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with small head. Mildly sweet-tart lemon malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Not a bad beer - just not a typical IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Mostly clear orange yellow color. Thin off-white head. Nice spreads of lace. Kind of a caramel malty, lightly soapy hop flavor. Lightly citrusy. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter, kind of crisp carbonation, lightly sticky finish. OK IPA. Not doing particularly much for me, and doesn’t taste as fresh as it could be (not date code found though)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent golden orange with thin white lacing. Smells of mild hops with a lighter pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with some nice pine notes. Solid on the palate. A decent IPA.

Draught at Slipper Noodle. Malty slightly hoppy IPA without too much going on. Pretty basic.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange/ amber with a short white head.
Scent is orange malt...
Taste is surprisingly sweet/tart...
Very litttle bittering.
Very tasty, just lacking an "IPA-ness".

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber, 6.3% abv. Upon crown removal, the entire room is filled with natural grapefruit and the candyish Easter sweetness that PNW hops occasionally give off. Raw, leafy hop odor, as if just added to the boil or heavily dry-hopped, with some resin and quite juicy. Yellow pour edging toward golden with a rocky eggshell head. Taste is medially bitter with medium sweetness, a little hollow in the lightish medium body, but smooth and with the green hoppiness (this is pretty fresh!). Planty light astringency in the aftertaste. Could use a little more definition, and I’m all for sacrificing some of the dry hopping for more bitterness. Still, very drinkable, and reminds me of TC’s homebrewed IPAs (and that’s not a bad thing).
