3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose is orange and pine - lovely aromatics - with a gentle malt backbone. The taste has malt and grapefruit. The palate has a medium body, a creamy and bitter texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall, a good American IPA example.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Firm orange amber body and slight white head. Tropical as you would expect nose from a hop combo. Sweet as a nut is initial taste is swept away by huge grapefruit and orange medley kept straight with a dry malt and firmer bitter finish.

A tasty pale ale with ample hop aroma. Not quite enough malt balance. Still would buy this again.

Pretty dull really. Sturdy malt backbone indeed. So much so i donít get much hop till right at the end. Not really a mountain then. Itís not bad or anything, but surely these days...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled at Great Grog. Slightly hazy dark copper/orange, thin white head. Very "American" nose - caramel, pine, slight alcohol warmth, spicy lemony Cascade (?) character. Slight sweetness, fairly dry, grapefruit, pine resin, soft bitter finish. Pleasant and drinkable.

355ml bottle. Filmy orangey golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma has notes of grapefruit and tangerine, caramel malty background. Taste is citrusy, bitter hoppy, near the finish minimally soapy and grassy.
