12oz bottle-pours a rocky light tan head and copper color. Aroma is mild citrus hops, some medium malt. Taste is citrus/orange/flat hops-bitter clashes with caramel medium malt. Then improves for the 2nd half.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a craft pack from Majestic. Poured a light copper colour with thick white head. Plenty of hops present, the taste starts sweet but ends bitter. Well balanced and drinkable for Ipa , I liked it very much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Citric hops with a nice bit of malt, sweetish caramel, and slightly exotic fruit – aroma definitely more than passable. Heavily carbonated body with a copper-amber hue and a (massively lacing) fluffy, rich beige head. Body lighter than expected, with light bitterness and a touch of cardboard, wet hops with caramel and vague (but delicious) candyish fruit. Touch of yeast in with the crispness. Dry, bready aftertaste. Medium-full body. Definitely the best I’ve had from these boys - a winner in every category and a solid session.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Faint golden color, drank out of a bottle: Nose is dry and husky with some faint C hops, grassy with a bit of pine needles and dry citrus notes. The flavor is thin with a dry snappy malt note and a fairly decent hoppy flavor. Piney with grapefruit, it comes across really nice, but the body and finish don’t hold up as well. Good though.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
yellowish brown body is topped off with a small white head. Smells like a weird blend of malty, wood and a bit of hops. Kind of a hoppy taste. It tastes kind of like they used rotten hops or something.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bottle and poured into a pint glass witha good but light head. The color is a clear amber, more see through then should be probably. A pine smell with a bit of bite on first taste. A light body and the after taste is a bit bitter but fades quickly.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very nice amber color with off white head. Aroma is relatively weak, mostly citrusy hops with a hint of pine. Flavor is also weak, a little more of the pine flavor comes through than in the scent. Palate is somewhat watery and not enough hops in this IPA.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Unimpressive and flavorless as IPAs go. I didn’t get nearly enough hop flavor that I would expect and the carbonation was a little too strong.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Although the appearance is really nice the flavor does not back it up. It has a rather weak hoppy aroma, and the finish is nothing extraordinary.They also do not do a good job hiding the booze in it.

pours a nice amber color with a typical IPA nose. would accompany a 23-year old country styled singer from Oregon. Average IPA...the better of the JWD pack.
