3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reminds me of mid-west IPA. Malty, not that hoppy. Although I do pick up some west coast grapefruit flavors. Overall pretty mild flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at CaskDays. Pours clear orange with lots of foamy head and no lacing. Nose is grassy. Taste is grassy with dank, some grapefruit. Taste medium bitter light sweet. Medium body with low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can poured into keg shaped glass. Canned on 7/22, consumed on 8/29. Pour is dark honey, clear. Aroma is surprisingly not as hoppy as I would have predicted and not as hoppy as the previous few IPAs. The aroma has a strong malt character with hops (as opposed to the other way around). Some liquid malt and some woodsy malts with nondescript mildly bitter hops. Flavor lowers the malt presence and amps the hop presence. Bitterness is mild-moderate, lightly cookie crust malts, and again sharp and clean hops but not a particular description I can give (maybe grapefruit, not really cedar). Lingering light hop bitterness.

Bottle from Safeway-Ephrata. Based on the score was expecting to be overwhelmed, but that’s not the case. Fairly mild brew (sampled after Iron Horse Gary, to be fair), nothing much stands out. Some caramel malts, but not much in the way of hop presence. Solid beer, but weak IPA.

Aroma: pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit in particular, some caramel, grass. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light sweet.

On tap. Hazy copper pour. White head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and citra hops. Taste is the same with grapefruit bitter finish. Pretty well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ice cold pour from bomber hits the sweet spot on this sizzling sunny day. Not the most adventurous IPA -- brisk, bitter, medium hoppy, nothing overly citrus -- but good middle of the road drinker.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour. Pours a fizzy copper color with a lasting head. Really wet bitter hop aroma. I would say I have had this beer more often then any other beer, and there is a simple reason. It’s often available, and it’s really good. Sweet and bitter flavors throughout with a hoppy finish. Enjoyed this one for years. Good stuff.

"Hmmm, not getting any cedar in here. Pine and citrus, a little malt heavy in the nose and flavor, but pleasant enough. Probably not one I’ll rush to get back to, though."

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
nose: not getting a whole lot apart from a wet grassiness, and an almost vanilla syrup scent.
palate: that’s more like it. very spicy [white pepper and bitter greens] at first, with good sweet grapefruit and apple in the middle. thick and resiny. finish mirrors attack completely and hangs around forever. sort of ’standard nw ipa’ for me. one-note but very well crafted
