3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a creamy, white head to cap a clear, orange body. Aroma was fain (read: weak), but the flavour did feature some very nice hop bittering. Mouthfeel could’ve been thicker.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber. Tasted on 7/9/14. Bottle from Total Wine Tampa, FL. The beer pours to a medium golden color with a very thick white head. The aroma has pine, very grassy& some Carmel notes. The taste has a very mild grassy taste with a mild hop & & very little bitterness. It finishes dry with very little aftertaste. Overall a very generic ipa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from total wine. Pours hazy amber with a small off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has pine, a lot of caramel, light citrus. The taste is pretty bitter but had a strange balance. It’s okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours on the lighter side with some floral hoppiness in the aroma. Moderately-hopped with little noticable alcohol. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky yellow/tan color with a huge foamy head. Smells of citruis, earthhy tones and hop. Taste is earthy pine and slightly orange and other citruis fruits. A bit too carbonated in my opinion. Not a great IPA but it's ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Garage 39. Light copper color, medium body. Piney nose but resin, pine, grassy, subtle hoppy goodness in terms of taste. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at dig beer baR. Pleasant moderate citrus nose with a sourish tinge. Clean light copper/orange color. Solid citrusy initial / caramel and more bitterness, with an added aspect of tree bark or herbs / finish is clean and lightly bitter. Medium-heavy body. Very good, slightly hop-heavy stuff.

Bottle: Pours orange amber with a mountain of beige head. Terrific retention and lacing. Some florals and caramel in the nose, resin and citrus. Pungent. Flavors come together seamlessly and it doesn’t take long to forget about descriptors… this is a star. Enjoyed immensely and for $3.79/bomber it’s arguably the best IPA for your dollar in the 22oz format.
