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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Clear amber-copper; good, fluffy off-white head. Cocos; cookies and USA hops, not overdone constitute the nose. Mild bitter hops, and again, getting cocos in the taste. Bitterness is hoppy, grapefruit and hopsacks. Slightly burning MF, bit harsh, piney aftertaste. Good stereotypic Westcoast IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2008-04-18. Lightly hazy dark amber with a good sized fluffy white head, some lacing. (3+) Light hoppy aroma with muted note of feet and light resin. Moderate bitterness in the flavour, resiny bitterness grows in the finish and borders on astringency at times. Average palate. Just okay, the hops are bitter without adding the complexity and delicateness I had hoped for. Shows potential but does not follow through. Bottle from Karen’s Seattle Trip

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent copper orange with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malty with some caramel notes and a touch of piny hops. Starts with a full carbonation and lightly sweet pale malt flavor with a crisp grapefruity bittering hoppy presence. A decent IPA, but could use a little more balance.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Pacific Standard. The pour is a hazy, poo orange with no head and no lace. Probably the ugliest IPA I’ve ever seen. The aroma is all stale hoppy with cheese and rotting berries. Taste is dry, soapy, muddy, just on the grasping edge of IPA. Sucked dick.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper with bubbly effervescence that piles up a off white head. The aroma is grapefruit hops, orange rind and vague malty sweetness. The taste is a load of straight up bitter grapefruit hops that attack right from the get go. A tasty pale maltiness wells up about midway but quickly succumbs to the grapefruit hop bitterness. The malts are simply out numbered here. They did put up a worthy battle. But in the finish and into the after taste the hops hold strong with citrus bitterness.
