3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear golden bronze with a finger of bubbly white head. Aroma: citrus (grapefruit, blood orange), apricot, and mango, with a doughy caramel malt undertone. Taste: slightly juicy bitter citrus hops up front, medium caramel and toffee throughout. Finish: dry and balanced. Notes: This is a fine IPA that suffers only by comparison to all the amazing IPAs that already exist. It’s fine for what it is. It also suffers from it’s proclamation that it’s a West Coast style IPA. I found it more similar to a Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, altough not quite as good. Bottle from Kevin at work.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Ed5388, thanks stretch. Poured a clear deep orange/amber with a smaller quick and total fading off white head. Aroma is ok, notes of dough, biscuits, amber and caramel malts, grassy hops and slight citrus. Flavor is like the aroma. Medium body with softer to average carbonation. Nothing special here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from tap way too cold. Pours a clear gold/orange with 1 finger head. Moderately hoppy on nose, resin, some citrus. Taste follows suit but more resin than citrus on palate, nice middle of caramel and bready malt, then back to hops for medium finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by PinkZambia Clear golden orange wit a small off white head. Bitter weird funky hop aroma and some light sweet maltiness. Decent hop flavor but just seems off.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Super clear with a funky egg aroma. Semi-hoppy aroma with a lame attempt for flavor. If you’re an east coast brewery announcing you are making a west coast IPA, something may be wrong.
