4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super nice, very hazy bronze coloured body with a bright orange glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan creamy head - this is an amazing looking IPA! Aroma of floral and very piney hops with a nice sweet smell and a good amount of malt and alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and resinous hop flavour at first with a good malt backbone, some subtle sweetness and then fades to some more hops - this time a bit more earthy and perfumey. Aftertaste shows a nice complexity from the hops with some solid malt flavours and a good level of alcohol. Overall, this is a well crafted IPA with a nice balance of malt and hops and an even better complexity from hops. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 10-February-2013 for US$3.50 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 30-June-2013 in celebration of my birthday!

Can. Light orange, quite hazy, with a creamy orange-tinted hed. Hoppy nose, lots of green notes here, some underlying caramel. Coniferous hop profile, some earthy undertones, caramel malt adds some sweetness. Solid bitter finish. A nice little canned IPA.

Clear green-tinged gold woth little white head. Complex, green aromas on the nose-fresh hops, earth, grass. On the front o the palate, thos beer hits you like its going to be an over-hopped bomb...very hop forward. But then...its not. It mellows into a very even, blanced, fresh and sessionable beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Aroma is musty with lots of citrus hops. Oranges, grapefruit, and flowers. Taste has very little sweetness and an extreme bitterness. Very dry bitter citrus taste. Overall, too bitter, even for me, but the flavor is decent. Wouldnít drink this again though.

Stimulating and powerful start with smoother citrus and light finish. Itís a beer that grows as you drink it. A grass more runs throughout and connects the beer from beginning to end. Recommended if you are looking for an ipa that wonít destroy your tastebuds.
