Clear, deep, rich gold. Small orange head. Nose of citrus and pine, typical PNW hopping nose. Taste of sweet amber malts, orange and pine, plenty of bitterness but good balance, bitter and slightly caramel sweet finish. Slightly cream in the mouth. Good IPA, one of my favorite styles.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium dark golden/orange pour with strong aroma of citrus and hops. Palate is real smooth with a creamy hoppy character. Alcohol is hidden real well. Has a bit of a citrusy aftertaste with hints of orange. Pretty good IPA. Might buy again.

(bottle) Pours out dark amber with a white head. Aroma is fairly strong with as OSLO mentioned, strawberry jam, light mandarin orange, pepper, and some caramel malt. Taste is quite sweet with caramel and a hoppy citrus peel bitter finish. The mouthfeel was medium, not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Pours amber-red with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is alright, strawberry jam, floral hops, light maltiness. Taste is largely malty up front, then a good deal of grapefruit-rind bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, decent finish. A good beer, but not the best IPA I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Decent standard IPA. This is a lot like Hazed and Infused except with more hops. The dry finish is the same which is ok. Slight bitterness, but easy to drink and overall a crisp finish. The aroma doesn’t really have much going on with it. This beer is a basic middle of the road IPA.

Thanks to Acknud for this gem. Pours out a nice deep amber with a thick white head. The huge floral bouquet of earthy citrusy hops is the first thing I take notice of, but once the head settles, a thick caramel malt body is there to balance it. Taste is mild and smooth, lots of malt with nice accents of citrusy hops. The balance is very nice between the hops and malt, its only deep in the aftertaste do you start to get some hop bitterness. Very nice.
