3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From can. Light amber, foamy white head, irregular lacing. Aroma is citrus, some pine. Sweet malt aroma also present (like a lemon jolly rancher if they make those). Moderate bitterness (on the light side for a northwest IPA), somewhat floral, nice malt backbone. Medium body, appropriate carbonation. Overall: very drinkable. The balance is to my liking. Nice lasting bitter finish, but with enough sweetness coming through that the aftertaste is pleasant.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear light amber color with very little of a white head on it. Nose is really strongly hoppy, in a really pleasant way. I get slight bits of floral elements in there, but a strong bit of grapefruit. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with some subtle fruity elements. Very drinkable and pleasant beer. Glad I picked this up.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can 6 weeks old. Pours pale golden with an impressive soft white head and lace, fully lasting in an IPA glass. Aroma is soft fresh grain and a modest bouquet of hops featuring cedar and not ripe tropical fruit. Flavor is similar with a grapefruit bitterness pronounced but not dominating throughout. Body is medium, carbonation is soft, and the feel is a bit gritty. Very much an easy and classic quality IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a clear bronze with a large white head. Aroma is of fruity hops and not much else. Seems real fresh. Flavor is decently hopped with a bit more malt presence to back things up. Finish leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue. A decent, hoppy no frills IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle with thanks to Eric! Pours clear neon orange with a small creamy off-white head that leaves pretty decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is spicy caramel, grain, pine, floral notes, perfume. Flavor is about the same, some sweetness underneath a rather bland hop character. Lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is a bit watery as well. Might have some age on it , but what looks to be a bottled on date on the neck is unintelligible, so be it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, citrus, hop oils. Flavor of hop oils, caramel malt, citrus, with lots of hop oils in the finish. A bruiser for sure but still drinkable. A touch astringent.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iíve had several varieties of this but my rating is the original from the can. Aroma is very pleasing, the Chinook and centennial come through nicely in my opinion. Appearance is standard, taste is rich and nice, sweet, fairly thick, full flavor and body. Easily a better-than-average flagship IPA. Try the original first and then compare it to the various Randallized versions.
