2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours bright yellow and a little cloudy with little to no head. Aroma is lager, sour, malty. Taste is sweet, salty, bitter on the finish. Astringent and bubbly on the tongue. Not really an IPA in flavor, not enough flavoring hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Earthy hops and oil paint aroma. Clear pale straw, with a thick frothy head. Balanced initial / medium goes meaty, chicken broth / fiinshes, somehow, clean and fresh. Medium body. Interesting stuff. Not a hop bomb. Balanced, with good deep flavors. Nice umami notes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Pour is olden orange with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grassy, husky, almost skunky, bready, biscuit, and old hops in the aroma. Taste is much the same - husky, skunky, grassy, bready, and semi-sweet - medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Seems a bit old and probably had too much light exposure. Extraíd in a trade, o well.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to tulip glass. I think this must have been waaaay past itís prime, if I ever get a chance to score a fresh one I will re-rate. Pours golden cloudy orangey with a lot foamy white head. Munich malts on the nose, no hop presence whatsoever, this smelled like a run of the mill APA. Taste was more of the same, this has to be long past itís time of goodness. Bitterness is quite low, the malt presence is pretty much all Iím tasting. Based on all the other characteristics of this beer you can tell its well made, the mouthfeel and carbonation are both very pleasing and again probably quite nice when fresh. This came across the country in a car and was one of the last beers I got after. Better luck next time methinks!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from "Lifesource" Salem.
Pours darker than usual orange with a good sized thick bubbly white head.
Not as hop forward in the nose as expected, mainlly grassy, herbal hop buy a goodish caramel hay malt aroma.
Taste is pretty balanced actually with the caramel malts but the cascade takes over half way and its a nice hop trip .
Nice mouthfeel like the nice lasting aftertaste( bitter).
Nice drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Pine Box in Seattle, WA. Pours a mostly clear, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is citrusy pines and florals with some medium sweet caramels. Flavor is similar. Lots of citrusy pines with a slight spiciness and a good amount of florals. Firm caramel malt backing before this finishes dry and bitter with some resins and a good amount of grapefruits. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid, but unspectacular IPA. Pretty bitter with lots of citruses and a firm caramel malt backing. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A strong but not brutal hop bomb. A strong earthy bitterness with a couple notes dancing in the background that I canít quite grab. Was on the taster tray with Boneyard RPM and are inches apart rating wise.
