4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange color with an off white head. Head settles quickly but leaves a nice long lasting lace.
Sent is huge floral and pine.
Taste is upfrount lots of pine and grass from the hops. As the it rolls over your tounge you get a bit of citrus in there as well. The flavor finishes dry with not much taste from the malts, but enough to keep the hops from being overpowering.
Overall not the best IPA that I have ever had, but I would recommend this to other hopheads and will definitely be keeping some around.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is pure bliss! Super fresh floral-pine hops. Flavor is less hoppy than the aroma but there is enought to satisfy you hop crave. The only knock i can think of against the beer is there is a wierd soapy after taste but that is a minor complaint. Deffinalty a hop head nirvana.

Orange color, with a a lot of sediment floating around. Long lasting head. Smells both citrusy and malty. Has a dry, grassy flavor. Very dry finish. Good overall balance. Average IPA, but looks nice.

Pours a cooper color with a thin head. Aroma of citrus. Good flavor but it wasn’t incredibly hoppy. I had this after having the Lost Coast IPA and I enjoyed that a little better. A little bit of bitterness. Average IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This IPA poured a dark orange colour with a nice big foamy, light tan coloured head. Scents include Hopps, hopps and more hopps. Also juniper berries, grass and spruce??? First taste was smooth and alot less hoppy than I thought it would be. Flavours of malt and bitter hopps dominating. A little caramel too. Finish is malty with a bitter aftertaste. Palate is a lingering hopp flavour that doesn’t go away.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a frothy white head, yellow amber body hue that is slightly hazy. No malt aroma, it is covered up by a heavy very cheesy, slightly citrus, and slightly floral (roses?) hop character. Peach and pineapple smells are also present. The initial flavor is a punch to the mouth of strong hops that seems exciting from the lively carbonation. The flavor is cheesy and not citrus hops. The flavor moves into a slightly sweet feels and finishes better, almost nasal clearing, but not quite overpowering. The body is medium-heavy with an oily texture. It has a hard bitter finish feel, but in a good way.
