3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-07-27, bottle from Kitsilano Liquor, Vancouver, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy golden color. Slick IPA, well drinkable, with simple but easy-drinkable malt profile; the hop is not bright, but it has a herbaceous, grassy touch.
I enjoyed it more that when I had it on draught.
2014-07-25, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Cloudy golden color with compact head. Very light fruity aroma, apricot, some yeast. Good body structure, lean mouthfeel; the malt flavor is a bit dusty, the hops are not bright, it has strong bitterness.
Rather boring IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Provisions Market. Clear golden-orange pour with a white head. Rather lemony aroma to this. Sort of woody as well. Some pale malts, melon, and Sauvignon blanc. Not bad. Flavor has a bit too much grainy sweetness for my liking. There is, though, a really nice fruit character from the hops. Lots of melon, lemon, and white grape. Moderate bitterness and a slight herbal note.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mini-growler picked up at Bier Thirty in Bown... Pours a bit hazy golden... decent white head has beautiful lacing despite the flimsy cap.
Nose is a weird hop mash-up... citrus+lessor melon with a background skunky almost catty hoppiness.. pretty sharp.. the "catty" note is really jumping out... just enough pale maltiness to balance.
Good bitterness with a fantastic hop flavor.. again is a bit catty with the pithy citrus/husky melon..
Zippy mouthfeel... never gives way to the EtOH... crisp and very drinkable.
Very well made IPA.. I would buy this again and again if I found fresh bottles..

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Hazy bright yellow. Small coarse quickly fading head. light citrusy aroma, grassy bitterness and very mild hop flavors. Bitterness at the end seemed a bit off.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Yep...straight Cluster is right...very citrus oriented with a tiny blast of herbal bitter in the end - you can see why this was the forefront running hop forever - very easy on the palate. Worth a try, but nothing over the top here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some nice citrus and resiny hop elements coming off it. Taste is nicely bitter throughout, but a slightly sweet resin element on the back end. Very nicely balanced, I think.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got a bottle of this to have later on my Oregon trip. Drinking it now out of a wine glass. Nice white head and golden color. Pine and resin on the nose. I like single hop beers, especially as a hop plant retailer. Only slightly bitter and a good, mild hop bite. I’ve been clusterstruck. Pairing nicely with my chicken noodle stew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. This was a decent IPA that leans towards the extreme side of hoppiness.
