Tap. Copper with foamy dissipating head. Smella resent and peppery. Taste is a little peppery too. Slightly grainy, moderate bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a dark red-amber with an attractive head of uneven white cream. Aroma is also an attractive mix of distinct hops and malts that are rich and well blended. The malt backbone supports a strong hop punch of bitterness and resin. The alcohol is noticeable but not off-putting. Overall nicely balanced and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is more malt tha hops. Between the aroma and the beige coloring, it reminded me more of an amber ale (that is on the hoppier side). The taste is more hop forward. A bit more of a resin side. Some floral, and a bit of citrus, but that is if you are searching. I get more resin than anything. That is followed by a sweet malt backing. Alcohol is masked well. Low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel with a bit of prickling on the tip of the tongue.
Not a bad beer, but if I want an IPA, I doubt I would go for this. If I want a smoother less hoppy ale, I could see myself reaching for this.

It wasn’t bad and had a nice aroma. My main criticism is the taste sat in my mouth way to long.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Ruby red and a small off white head. Aroma is a little malty and piney. Taste is much more complex! Loads of floral, pine, and a tiny bit of citrus in there all hitting you at once. Pine resin aftertaste. A nice medium body and kinda light carbonation. Hard to call this balanced.

malty and fresh hops in the aroma. Flavor wise, hops lean towards resin. Very drinkable and great body.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml bottle on 3/5/2016. Pours a dark golden/light amber with a medium head. Has a light aroma of caramel and floral hops. Flavour wise, there’s a decent dash of caramel malt, some sweet citrus fruit, followed by quite a spicy, slightly peppery bitterness - a bit rye IPA-like. Medium bodied with average carbonation.Very solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber/copper with a nice lasting head. Caramel aroma. Taste is fairly typical IPA, maybe a little more caramel and a nice finish. Good body and mouthfeel. Not my favorite, but not bad at all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and that about it. Not much hops for an IPA. Flavor has more hops than the aroma but not much more. Kind of had a soapy flavor as well.
