Bottle. Pours standard IPA gold. head is small and white, minimal lacing. Nose is hopy but not in your face, also it is somewhat sweetish. Taste is run of the mill west coast IPA. Nothing to complain or cheer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick off white well ratained head sits atop a light orange colored brew.
Aroma is moderately rich with some nice malt depth and a rather restrained piney hoppiness. Flavor also leans towards a rich toffee maltiness, but there is not enough hop blast bitterness
to qualify this as a top IPA. Enjoyable just not hoppy enough.

Light hazy golden brong. Carbonation stands out. Nice light foamy head. Smells of citrus and spices. Bitter taste, but smooth down. Not a bad IPA.

Tap@Eel River. Pretty good for an organic beer. Lychee/pine bitterness, texture is a bit milky or something, which was a bit odd.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light carbonation, light copper color with sticky head and lots of lacing. The aroma is citrusy and spicy like alligator pepper and coriander. The flavor is mild with a bit of hops coming through. Rather lacking in bitterness but high in hop notes, definately a significant amount of aroma/flavor hops and dry hopping. Good choice of hops though, one of my favorites, I believe Columbus or Chinook, but I could be wrong. Finishes a bit watery with a distant bitterness in the tail after you drink a fair amount and your palate gets used to it. Decent IPA!
