3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite beers! Bold, hoppy flavor. Much better on draft, but still really good in a bottle. I highly recommend it!!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Orange-amber, with an appealingly huge top. Despite the big visuals, this ends up being a bit hollow overall. I’d call it a mellow pale ale, very thin to the feel, tilted to the bitter side. (#6314, 8/2016)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled on 07/28/16.
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a crisp transparent burnt orange color with a thin white foamy head. Dissipates nice and slow. Messy thin cap of a somewhat sustaining head with lacing.
The aroma starts off with some sweet citrus pulp and then bitter rind. Subtle herbal/grassiness slides in nicely.
The flavor takes the previously mentioned aromas to try and combine but the bitterness comes forth a bit more than expected. Lingering grassy hops aftertaste with finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation feels fine.
Overall, it’s a decent AIPA that could come back to if I saw it, but might seem out some others before this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft in Merced. Orange pour with a thin head. Decent lacing though. Aroma of pine and floral and maybe caramel. Flavor the same with a sweet and somewhat astringent base. Herbal notes underneath. Some citrus. Mouthfeel moderate. More carbonation may have helped.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy (good resinous dank look) orange straw color. White dense head. Piney hop flavor that goes on too long after initial tasting. Some sweet grain huskiness as if mashed at too low temperature. Not unpleasant, just noticeably unique for an IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle, in Nevada City, probably from Costco, Sacramento.Deep golden to orange colour, white head. A typical West Coast IPA with citrussy and piney hops, but not as extreme as some. The hops are fairly well balanced with the malts. I really liked this one.
