4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Found a sixpack of this in a little mom & pop store along the "Avenue of the Giants" in the redwood forest of northern CA. From a 12-oz. bottle, this pours a clear ruby-amber with a nice initial, off-white head. Good lacing. Fairly strong malty & citrusy aroma. Good caramelly malt base with a nice whack of hops in the foreground as well. Some fruitiness shines through. Lingering hoppy follow-through. The hops are different than the usual northwest cascade variety; quite refreshing. Lovely beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had in Eureka, CA on Tap
Copper color with a thin white collar.
Nose was caramel, pine and grapefruit. More of the English style IPA with a higher ABV. Malt really stood out.
Taste was Caramel, biscuit, pine and grapefruit. More malt forward than anything else.
A bit thin for the ABV but workable. Medium feel light and medium carbonation. Translates better on tap than in bottles that have made it to NZ. Nice beer actually.

Overall, not a bad IPA but not in the top notch class. Weak for the ABV and not that great hoppy aftertaste. ...but organic so a big plus for overall.

Slightly hazy amber appearance. Hoppy sticky scent. Nice hoppy pine bite yet contained and fades enjoyably away. Leaves mouth moist.

Smells hoppy with a bit of malt. Dark amber color with a creamy thin head. Tastes creamy also! Also a bit of something rich like coffee or chocolate. Pretty damn good.
