3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Orange amber, creamy compact head. Aroma of citrus fruit, light pine, and a little plastic. Sweet toffee malts, citrus rind, resin, and a little band-aid plastic note. Finishes with astringent green-stick bitterness. I think this is on the verge of being past its prime, with the plasticcy phenols lurking in here.

Bottled, from Spokane, WA. Clear dark amber, small head. Aroma of pine and pear. Sweet with some caramel biulding a rounded mid-sized, rather dense body. Long perfumy, resiny bitterness. The hop’s comes across a little bit harsh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Cloudy amber/orange with lots of yeast sediment and a big thick fluffy beige head. Grapefruit aroma with some other citrus and mild caramel. Bitter hop flavor up front with some light sweetness and a dry bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Nice dry sessionable IPA, the yeast kind of muddied the flavors though.

From a bottle. A good IPA - nice bitter finish. Nothing particularly outstanding, but very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with a limited head. Aroma is one-dimensional: hops with perhaps a hint of yeast. The taste is, frankly, quite unpleasant I get an initial taste of salty, burnt malt followed by an unbalanced blast of hops that are more rank than bitter. Palate is watery. A considerable disappointment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear dark orange with a thick frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange peel. Taste is sprucey, resin on the finish. Good flavor and balance I think.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours darker golden with a thin head, aroma is pine and hops and some citrus. The flavor is a somewhat heavy, not malty IPA, very hoppy and the alcohol really comes through. An average IPA, so far not too impressed with this brewery.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle, decent hop aroma but the flavor is really flat and just plain bitter and hop water.
