3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour pint at the brewery, as part of my on foot Woodinville crawl. The rain is pouring, but so is the beer, so it’s cool. 3rd stop. Light golden copper pour with a rocky foam head. Big fresh piney hops aroma. Hop heavy flavor with a slight bitter finish. Has a cabbage hinted feature that I have noticed in their beer before, but it isn’t nearly as off putting here. Lingering bitter hop finish. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear light copper with a slight off-white head. Lots of hop in the aroma - floral, spice, earth - maybe pine. Med + body. Flavor is rather earthy with touches of pine and citrus. It has a bitter bite. Leaves hop flavor in the mouth. It’s not super strong in any one thing - except all the hop taken together. Support is mildly roasty malt. Solid IPA.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Dirty Bucket, pours a clear pale copper with a small white head. Aroma is astringent, with notes of piney hops and bitter biscuity malt. Flavour is exactly the same, with astringent hops and dry biscuity malt - no character here at all, just unpleasant astringency. Not good.

Draught at the brewery
Cloudy light amber color with small head. Fruity aroma. It has some fruity flavor, less resins, and less malt, with some yeast trace, evident.
Not bad, but it’s an homebrew IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow! This IPA bursts with fresh delicious hoppiness! Aroma of fresh cut grass as you crack the can. Beautiful amber pour with a light airy tan head. Perfectly balanced fresh hops and malts with a slightly bitter finish. This is the freshest tasting IPA I've had in a long time!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall Boy Can. Dark ruby colored in appearance with a layer of sudsy off-white head. Aroma is citrus rind, dank herbal hops and pine resin. The flavor is a blend of tropical fruit, pine and tangerine notes along with some caramel and vegetal hops bitterness toward the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin with average carbonation and more bitterness and sweet citrus in the finish. Decent but a little raw and unfinished around the edges.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Deep dirty amber, deep caramel hues, moderate foamy sandy head, nice lacing. Pine, resin, and some candied citrus peel on the nose. Very minor bitterness up front, and a little weak in terms of body and mouthfeel. Seems a bit watery. Soft bitterness, a touch earthy. Looks interesting, smells good, but is real weak on the tongue. Its a touch on the thin side too. Seems more of a Pale Ale than an IPA. Flavors are all up front, somewhat falls off on the back. Meh... pedestrian.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a medium light-tan head. Piney, resinous aroma with some caramel sweetness. Flavor is pleasantly piney, with some hoppy bite and lingering bitterness...but overall comes across as thin and a bit watery.
