Bottle. Amber orange pour with a chunky white head. Caramel aroma, little touch of pine. Definitely has a lot of sweet malty flavor up front, finishes sharply bitter and resinous with pine and cedar characteristics. Has a lingering woody bitterness. The strong pine character of this is distinct from other IPAs Iíve had, and this is good for any time Iím craving strong bitterness. This is not bad, but itís also not really what I look for in an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber/gold pour. Aroma is a mix of honey, floral and citrus hops. Flavor switches back and forth between a bit of sweetness and the prick of the hops. Pretty ok IPA. RIP Dick.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Scrizzz (thanks!) Pumpkin colored pour, good citrus and hops aroma and the most carbonation Iíve ever seen in a beer (even when poured very carefully and slowly, the foam just wouldnít stop). Flavor is woody, malty, mellow hops/copper and very dry on the finish. Aside from the root beer float foam, a very good and easy drinking IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Umber color with a taller fluffy off-white head. Aromas of crystal malt, wood and citrus. Caramel, paler malt, citric hops and touch of tropical fruit flavors. Touch of rust in the finish and into the linger. My last batch of IPA of the west coast is slightly less than awe inspiring.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice deep copper with thin white head. No real aroma could be because it is kind of cold. Nice hop presence up front quickly balalnced with a light malt sweetness. Then back to the hop finish. Nice

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz - Soapy aroma of lemon, pine sol and some bready malts. Flavor is also soapy, piney hops and some caramel. Palate is a bit astringent. Not too good.
