2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a small head. Nose is a bit of caramel malt, musty, and something not too pleasant. Palate is a bit thin. Taste is citrus, mild malt - not overly complex. Tastes better than it smells.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky amber pour with lingering white foam. Smell of hops, fruit, roast, grass, pine, caramel and honey. Smooth and medium body with lots of bitterness and a slight creaminess. Lots of roasted hops...nice staying power of hops in the palate. A complex brew. Nice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a finger of white head. Aroma is very thin and had some citrus.. Almost orange. Taste is lightly bitter and resembles an American pale ale more than an ipa. Alcohol is will hidden but a poor showing In the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notes/headache only. Strong hop aroma, probably the standard centennial/amarillo. Surprisingly light-bodied for an IPA; not especially bitter. I think it was good, though. Or maybe not. I don’t remember.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a murky caramel color with a thick lt tan head...good lacing and retention. Aroma is musty and bready with a lt off aroma of vomit...slightly vegetal. Flavor is bitter and tea-like with some bready malty notes. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly lifeless with a very bitter earthy/dry finish. Just an awful beer...id rather drink a miller lite...it would more predictable and less offensive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle: This one pours a cloudy, somewhat orangish color. there was about a 1/2 finger of off white head. It didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Nice blast of pine hops to the nose. A touch of grapefruit also with maybe some caramel malts lurking in there. Decent enough taste. Fairly bitter, but not overly so. Piney taste, with a decent caramel malt body behind it. Somewhat dry finish. A good IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Deeply hazed orange brownish color. One and a half fingers of off-white, creamy/frothy head. Retention is a touch above average and plenty of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Pine and grapefruit hoppiness is the strongest aroma. A touch of earthy and herbalness as well. Bready malts and yeast with a slight caramel undertone. Clean overall, especially given the yeastiness.
3.5 T: Mild bitterness. Lots of pine hop flavor. Grapefruit, earth, and herbs to follow. Orange citrus after that. Bready yeastiness. Caramel to round things off.
3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation is moderate in amount and slightly biting. Lacking creaminess for the most part.
3.5 D: Decent beer, but as far as IPAs go, this isn’t too special.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Very aromatic IPA. Grapefruit and citrus aromas. Amber orange pour. Full pint makes great beers. None I haven’t liked. Make sure you get it fresh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark copper body with a one finger fizzy white head that left some light lacing. The nose is nicely hoppy and fresh smelling with a hefty amount of Chinook. Just a bit of maltiness peeking out from under the hops. The flavor is a bit catty and too green tasting from all the Chinook though. I think that this is a hop that can use a little enhancement from another variety or two, less well suited than many varieties for single hopping. Some light caramel maltiness, especially on the finish after the slight piney hop flavor fades. Medium bodied without being sticky or cloying. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent overall, but I’m not loving it. More of a personal preference thing though vs. any kind of flaws.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper bodied citrus aroma IPA. Chinook hops are evident not overbearing. Stronger in alcohol and weaker in hop profile than I expected.
