4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fruity, citrus, danky, resinous aromas. Pours a clear golden/orange color with a white head and good lacing. Nice carbonation the bitterness lets you know it’s there, but never steps over the line. Many subtle flavors really enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The kind of IPA I like. Smooth and balanced. Beautiful and full-flavored malt backbone, complemented by hoppy flavors and --importantly -- just the right amount of bitterness. You know you're drinking an IPA, but this is not bitter for the sake thereof. A-

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little sulfur on top of caramel, grain, herbal and citrus hop notes. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of grain, caramel, citrus hops, a little herbal and danky, but with some sulfuric yeast presence that ruined it a bit for me. Nice carbonation, smooth and drinkable. Not a bad beer at all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 oz can. The first aroma to hit these nostrils after cracking this open is a resinous hoppy dankness wafting out of the canhole before I even poured it into my Duvel tulip. Pours hazy golden with a large white head with good retention. Taste is bittersweet and not quite as nice as the aroma let on. Nice hoppy flavor but not quite what I was expecting considering the aroma. It has a pleasant candy sweetness without it becoming cloying, though. Prickly carbonation, medium body. Nice IPA overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz single can from "Lifesource" Salem OR.
Cloudy orange IPA, with a large thick,tight bubbly off white head.
Spicy ,resiny,grassy hop aromas..quite fresh or so it seems.
Taste is the same but with dank resiny hop taking the forefront.
Slight lemon aspect also.
Good thick yet drinkable palate..low carbonation.
Nice enough IPA typical of the PNW style

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can, consumed at home alone after fighting with my toddler to just go the hell to sleep -- a bitter IPA is just what I’m in the mood for. Pours hazy orange-ish amber with creamy head, leaving behind loads of lacing. Aroma is hugely piney. Some pineapple/grapefruit citrus in there for backup, mingling with just a bit of caramel. Taste is an explosion of resinous bitterness with just enough malt beneath to remain pleasant. Big lingering dry, bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: This is a clean, big and bitter resinous IPA.
