3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is a pleasant aroma of Grapefruit and Orange. Palate is caramel malts, hops, grapefruit. First thing I noticed about the appearance, is the sediment floating around, probably from dry hopping??. Overall smooth and tasty. Definitely a beer I would buy again and very sessionable, especially for $7.49 a sixer @ Bristol farms...Actually all Deschutes sixers are $7.49 and I hope it stays that way. The only other great ipa for similar price is anderson valley hop ottin’ @ TJs..

Dark amber colour with a off white almost pale yellow head. Lace stays for days. Unique aroma, mostly bannana, nice though. The bannana follows through into the taste, with hints of malt and toffee in addition. Not as dense in the mouth as I like, but good carbonation and reserved dryness are the saviour here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from December 2013. There is a big hop wallop in the hose and a big piney resinous flavour. Long finish that is a touch dry. Overall very good.

Pretty good bitter IPA. Big lasting bitterness after a heavy pine resinous start. Nothing especially stood out hopwise for me. but nice and chewy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear deep amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Banana, resin and grapefruit hops and a little toffee malt make up the aroma. Pine and grapefruit hops up front give way to toffee malt in the mid-palate. A touch of banana leads into a pine hop finish. A decent IPA, but it doesn’t really stand out from the crowd.

Straight down the middle safe but fine IPA. No distinct hop.

Aroma of pine, citrus, malt caramel, hop dank. Pours copper with white head. Smooth up front with medium body. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Not the typical IPA.
