3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really good. It is has a hoppy honey/clover taste with a distinctive dry finish. The terms ’drinkable’ and ’sessionable’ are overused these days, often as a consolation prize to mediocre beers. Those terms should be reserved for beers like red chair, as the desire to pound one after the other comes because of its taste, not because it is light or unoffensive etc...

Seems like marries otter malts preface this. The hop punch in aroma is exactly that a citrus hop punch. The malts add such a nice dimension. Enjoyable predicable hop bomb.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Hippo Beers. Deep orange brown, big foamy head, lot of sediment. Resin, grain, boiled sweet & hop aroma. Soapy dry barley and hop flavour. Sharp with bitter aftrertaste. More an amber ale to me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice citrus hop aroma. Pretty copper color. Normal mouthfeel. Tropical bitterness up front but not to harsh. Treads a fine line between pale ale and IPA.

Old bottle from carnivores. Everyone should bottle date. Aroma of oxidized hops. Wet leaves. Taste is a gross malt bomb. Nothing good left.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This IPA may be lower in hops than their regular IPA but it lacks some of the malt depth as a down side. A good beer but not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An IPA without going overboard on the hops. Very tasty, but not a good choice for the Budweiser drinker. Another hreat beer from Oregon, cannot wait to move back.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Pours amber, clear as day, and well carbonated with an ephemeral fizzy head. Nose is weak. A little woody and kind an oil scent. Medium body leaning towards dry. Kind of a sticky finish. Taste is herby, bitter, and woody in the middle with a strange finish. Aftertaste recalls beets or turnips. Not a big fan. Might be a bad bottle. Tastes a little skunky.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, passionfruit, crystal malts and caramel. Taste is sweet hops with a pleasant full bodied profile balanced fabulously. The hoppy aromas clone the taste. Finishes surprisingly smooth. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium frothy nitrogen head that looks fabulous.
