2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some retention and great lacing. A rather weak aroma. Smells of citrus hops and a slight sent of sweet malt. Tastes of stale hops and malt. Not the most enjoyable IPA. Hopefully it's just a bad batch.

A good strong standar IPA, goes beyond the standard, pushes the envelope toward an Imperial with a good IBU rating and robust aroma.

Solid IPA, nice floral & citrus hops with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Poured from a can tonight, but even better on tap.

On tap at the Wilson taproom/brewery. Brilliantly clear with low head. Very fruity esters and citrusy hops with low alcohol sweetness. Malt is low but balances decently. Slightly resinous finish. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can. It pours an orange gold color with a thick white head. The aroma is strong with citrus and pine with noticeable toasty malts and a decent amount of caramel. Pretty classic old school West Coast IPA aroma. The flavor is the same. Very fresh citrus and pine followed by a caramel malt backbone. A bit more than I like, but certainly not overdone. Good subdued bitter finish. Very tasty and drinkable.

On tap in Sedona. Pours clear yellow/orange with a small white head. Nose is citrus/grapefruit, malt. Flavor follows with pine and bitter hops. Medium body, good carbonation, nice balance. A nice surprise.

clear golden hue, citrus, light pine, and caramel aroma... nice hop- pine and some citrus- flavor, smooth with a medium-intensity malt backbone and a very slight bitter finish... a nice beer!

Average ipa with nice grassy hops with some light grapefruity bitterness and sweet caramel malts. Not bad at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick, rocky fluffy off-white head that leaves some chunky lace. Nose involves some pine and floral notes, prominent sweet barley, some peach, fairly muted. Somewhat sweet flavor, with a fair bitterness. Medium-full body, quite soft, quite grainy, oily, with a lengthy twangy bitter and nearly tart exit. No clue on freshness, though it was purchased about 5 months ago, but it’s canned so you figure it would hold up a little better than a bottled version. Hops definitely seem faded, and the malt isn’t prepared to carry the load. If I can ever land a fresh version, I will rerate.
