On tap at KSBF ’08. Dark gold body with a lasting head. Pine, caramel, and citrus are present in smell and flavor. A little sweeter than I like my IPAs but very solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Poured very clear, golden caramel copper. The smell was a little dusty, with pine hops, citrus, caramel, raisin, and sesame all dancing around. The taste was a well balanced hoppiness, with a little pine and malt, but no fruit.
The mouthfeel was just a tad flatter up front than average for the style, with a nice kick in the back.
All around a great IPA!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Straightforward IPA with little about it to make it memorable. Frothy head that lasts. The body is amber and clear. Aroma of grapefruit, resin, grain and cookie. The flavor is a little less than moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Both the sweetness and bitterness carry through into the finish, though even in the end it is a little more sweet than bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper orang with off white head and lace. Citrus/evergreen hops presence on the nose. Large maltiness followed by a solid hops bitter. A tad foamy on a medium/full bodied beer. Pretty damn nice drinker.

Pours a translucent copper gold with a two finger frothy white head. The aroma is citrusy, hoppy, sweet, some piney floral hops. The flavor is hoppy, fresh, citrusy, some alcohol, sweet, nice flavor, not as much bitterness. The palate is easy, needs more to it, mild bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(On tap) Clear amber golden with a small off-white head. Lightly citrusy nose. Surprisingly light-bodied with a discreet malt base and hints of fruit and a little caramel. Subdued bitterness. Very disappointing from this otherwise decent brewery. 180908
