3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours hazy copper with thin, fizzy white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is floral and grassy hops, oranges, straw malt, lemon, and light herbs. Flavor is balanced hops (light bitterness) and sweet malt with strong orange towards the end; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a very nice, lasting head. This is a no-nonsense PNW IPA. The nose is crazy hoppy with fresh grapefruit and evergeen. I haven’t had a pure, straight up IPA like this in a while. Man, is it good. The flavor is clean and satisfyingly bitter. Fresh, sharp grapefruit and pine notes bombard my palate. Finish is lovely. This will take care of any IPA craving I might have.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tangletown. Awesome mango, citrus atoma. Quite pungent. Flavor is a little disappointing for the aroma. Quite boozy, would have expected a double ipa. Citrus hops and bitterness. Average appearance and palate.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful fresh hop aroma. Floral and citrus together. An excellent beer. Good hops but not real overpowering, If anything, this could have just a tad more strength.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Cloudy copper-gold with small ring. Little lace. Mild to medium carbonation. Quite cloudy and hazy. Aroma is a little fruity with hint of citric hops. Body is on the lean side. Taste of slight malt sweetness with hint of citrus and straightforward bitterness. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Quite good but not quite great. Goes well with spicy food.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ brewpub. Muddy brown-orange. Luscious thick head leaves substantial lacing. Aroma is quite balanced with earthiness and sweetness and even a touch of funk as if it’s from a barrel. Also subtle, slight diacetyl. Tasty stuff. Straightforward with earth, trees, leaves and mulch. Has a masculine quality. Unfortunately, the slickness in the palate and burnt butter emerge as it warms.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tangletown. Pours a hazy dark amber with an off-white head. Has a mild citrus aroma and a little bit of butter. Flavor has strong hop grapefruits but the mouth feel is slick. Is there a slight diacetyl contaminant? If so, it’s well hidden as this is a really tasty beer.
