4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wet hopped version enjoyed November 5, 2015 on draft in a snifter.
Look - Orange gold. See through. Nice finger of ivory head. Medium bubbles. Great lacing.
Smell - Mango. Grapefruit. Orange. Dank musty hop.
Taste - Nose. Dank mustiness is there but not for long. Finished with bubblegum.
Feel - Drier finish than expected. Medium feel slightly creamier than water. Sits well. Burns tongue with hop.
Overall - I had regular trail head and it was average. Wet hopped trail head is great. This is a very good rating for a regular IPA.

A hazed golden IPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity biscuit malt with resinous piney hops, nice and smooth, classic California IPA. In mouth, a sweet fruit biscuit malt with citrus, resinous and floral hops, pink grapefruit, nice and balanced. Can from Matt in Ottawa. Merci Matt.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can to teku, red-amber pour with sizeable head. Nose of sweet malt, citrus juice, a bit of spice and pine, floral notes playing with smooth lemon on top. Flavor has a more pronounced pine, evenly matched with a clean yet sweet malt presence. Citra notes and flowers tag along closely behind. Well-balanced, soft carbonation, clean finish, a true representation of the surreally-cleansing, bright, and sweet trails of the Metroparks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery in Portland, RBSG. Medium gold body. Piney hop profile with grapefruit too, clean pale malts, low sweetness, intensely bitter finish. This is the kind of beer that could easily be an IPA instead of an APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty decent pale but too malty for my taste. Citra is muted, somewhat generic bitterness. Iíd be happy to drink this again but wouldnít seek it out.
