2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has pine and doughy malts. Flavor follows suit...piney/earthy hops and sweet caramely/doughy malts. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter and resinous pine. Just not very tasty at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from CaptCougar/GT2, complete malt bomb, actually undrinkable to me because it tasted so stale and old, no brewed date or date marking of any kind so down it went.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice example of an IPA. Pours clear orange, with very little trace of white head. Aroma is full of sweet floral hops. Taste is citrus and caramel sweetness. Finishes slightly sticky with some hop bitterness. Very sessionable.

Hazy chestnut with a bit of white head. Aroma is like tangerine pith with malt and a bit of booze. Taste is the same with rich citrus and sweet malt. $4/12oz

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Perch Pub, pours a lightly clear pumpkin orange, with thin white head, and nice white sheets of lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, toast, and vanilla. Taste is much of the same with a nice orange zest flavor and some delicious biscuity malts to back up the hops. Ultra sessionable. Not as funky and cheesy as most new zealand hopped varieties but still real nice. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable ipa from Duclaw.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pour clear copper with a finger of white head. The aroma is fairly floral with a little pine in the distance. The taste is nice and bitter with just enough citrus sweetness to balance. Solid but not spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Craft. Pours translucent deep coppery orangy with minimal off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is fruity, with piney hops and a big caramel malt bill. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat astringent, with mid-palate fruit, pine, tropical notes, and a sticky IBU-forward finish. Medium palate heft, not a ton of complexity, and some late heat.
