3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled: unk (rubbed off)
Itís a lightly toasted golden raisin with a solid sheet of fine whipped toasted cream foam atop. Smells of resin, pine, some grain and a little metal. Nice and assertively hoppy on the nose, has what I consider a classic PNW smell. Flavor follows suit with resin, pine and some body oder...Maybe a bit of grapefruit pith and a solid amber like malt character with a bit of biscuit. Medium bodied with slightly soft carb and an off dry finish. The beer reminds me of Bitter American from 21st Amendment, and since itís on the shelves around me, and canned, it would be my go to over this one. Good though.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a nice, white laced head. Light, sweet, hoppy aroma. Smooth taste with a light hint of hops. Slight tart flavor. Aside from that, nothing spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour, thin white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and malt. The flavour is fruity, with grapefruit and malty notes, and a dryish bitter citrus-hoppy finish. Very good, especially considering the low abv.

Aroma sensacional frutado, clássico de uma bela IPA. Amargor marcante, mas um pouco mais suave que da maioria das IPAs que já provei. Belo conjunto, com boa drinkability.

Sampled at Boulder IPA fest whenever I needed to tone it down a bit. Grainy, hoppy, clean aroma. A superior thirst-quencher. Absolutely top-notch. Very happy to see this at the fest.
