4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Growler fill from Growler Guys CDA. This is my Barbara Walters beer. Aroma is earthy, pine, very fresh. Pours slightly hazy orange with an off-white head. Taste is very much ripe dank sticky green bud, lightly bitter with a candy sweetness, a bit of a tang, and even a savoriness. The aroma is nice, but somewhat lackluster compared to the flavor, which is damn near perfect for style. Delicious stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 500 ml bottle, bottled on 9/22/15. Pours a light copper color with some cloudiness and a mostly white head. Minty pine aromas with some breadiness. Taste starts off malty with mint and pine flavors flowing in behind. Very fresh tasting. Some caramel notes with a mild, lingering bitterness on the end. Feel is moderately heavy with light carbonation. Overall very solid and fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and herbs with some caramel notes. Taste is a citrus and herbal hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Not as hoppy as the 96 IBUís would suggest. Actually, a fairly easy drinking IPA that is well rounded and tasty. Recommended.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 2015 bottling.
I wonder how many reviews Iíve while listening to Ratt - Out of the Cellar... Full marks for aroma - thick and obvious, pungent, actual weed, dank basement, melon and maybe tangerine - that makes a wicked smelling smell of smells. Very tasty as well and Iím already annoyed that Iím doing a review instead of just sitting back sipping away while dealing with hard nipples. Mint and tangy, super dank, melon and sweet citrus orangy stuff, overall much more sharp when cold - now thereís a big soft batch of caramel for a bit more than just the base - however it is not sweet or overpowering. 2/3rds of the way to half power spice, very thick yet not syrupy. Slow sips for enjoyment and processing is the best way to hit this as it all turns into a big blob of whatever when I try to do a billion consecutive review sips. I think Iím beginning to turn and need to plow away at some of these brews much colder. Itís probably just my old, decaying body that just canít cope anymore. Excellent brew on different levels at different temperatures. That slow, bearded idiot Sean in BCís review bent me towards the purchase. Love.
**review of review moments later**
ok, so I have this rated higher than Two Hearted and that is not going to happen even though I realize that Iím pretty sure 3.8 was on the low side. Then again, Iíve had it a handful of times and itís really good but never actually blew me away. Second and third and fourth and fifth and sixth bottle need purchasing to validate this.
VALIDATED. I think this is my new fave. The fridge is solid Killer Green.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep orange color, topped with a sticky sandy head and lots of sheet lacing. Nose is citrus and pine, some tropical fruit. Aromatic. Tastes a little on the malty side, finished bitter. Lacks elegance.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Darby's. Hazy copper, frothy cap, steady lacing. Aroma is a weird mix of medicinal tropical fruit, melon skin, citrus, brown sugar, very slight coniferous tree needle. Taste is candy sweetness, and again the medicinal/melon skin bitterness. Palate is sticky, creamy, medium carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Copper colored. Clear appearance. Thick, frothy white cap. Perfect lacing. Citrusy notes. Wet dog. Cheese. Mildew. Sticky texture. Medium carbonation. Starts hoppy and finishes a little salty. Definitely taste fresh. As i am drinking it i am getting a tad bit of spice in the flavor. This beer is getting better everytime i taste it. Very impressed with this beer. I guess a trip to Hood River, Oregon is in my future. Yeah for me.
