3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Smokin Joes. Pours clear burnt orange with a white head. Aromas of caramel and some pale malts with some light citrus and a little pine. Flavors of pine, grapefruit, little orange, and some malty sweetness. This one is fresh and packs nice bitter punch. Surprised by the low ratings as this is a nice solid IPA. Can’t wait to brew with these hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Split a 12oz bottle with friends. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was earthy hops, lightly roasted malts, some light fruit characters. Flavor had caramel notes, earthy malts, some bitterness. May not have been the freshest, because it was lacking in the grapefruit and pine notes.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a orange-amber color with lots of floating sediment. I thought I was careful with the pour. Pungent herbal, floral and spicy aroma with some fruits too. Taste is weird though. Very herbal, very dry, and stale hops. Too much caramel malt too. A little pine in the finish. After a solid aroma, the taste is very disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask @ Spinnerstown] Amber color with no head. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, grass, and grapefruit. Taste of bitter chinooks, light sweetness, some pine, and bitter grapefruit in the finish. This cask seemed lifeless and overly bitter.

Nice big hop aroma, pours a hazy reddish-amber with a thin off-white head. Clean hop flavor, with a touch of malt. Long lingering bitter finish. This is a nice solid IPA.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Wexford, PA. Pours a hazy bronze color with floating particles and a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, resin, pine, candied citrus hops and caramel malts. The taste is intense pine, resin and citrus hops with mildly toasted caramel malts. Medium bodied.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is a very light pine scent. Flavor is very much grapefruit and pine with a bit of spice. Really like this beer, a full chinook hopped beer seems kind of crazy but I think this turned out solid. Glad I got this in a trade, I would get this again. Very balanced Ipa!!

Intriguing but muted aroma with a dirty yellow pour, complex taste with a lingering mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought, what I think is a fresh bottle. Golden orange pour with a 1/2 finger head. Strong "hoppy"aroma. Taste matches aroma. It is very bitter and dry, but enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised and would buy again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a cloudy golden color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and hops. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, roast malt and a touch of caramel. Medium bodied with flavors of hops, grapefruit and a bit of malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
