3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
they keep changing the label on full sail. i guess i like what they have decided on for now. country scene of nature around the neck of the bottle is nice. this poured golden brown with a small white head that didnt realy develop or last. nose of thin hops and cut grass. flavor spills over into mostly hop flavored water that turn metallic without the appropriate amt of roasted malt to compete.. thin backbone. but easy drinkn beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This red tinged golden brew throws up a tall head of creamy white that sticks around for a good bit before easing down.
The aroma is fruity with a bit of yeast and a subtle blend of malt and hops.
Dry palate in which the malt never blossoms with a long bitter finish. A bit out of balance.
Thanks to droopy49 for this.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
For a decent brewery, this is a pretty mediocre IPA. Lack of complexity and something just off about it. Pretty hoppy but not in a good way.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An okay IPA. Orange-gold pour with a good head. Claims to be very hoppy, but doesn’t follow through. Its all there, just not that strong. Dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful rich golden-orange color that almost glows. Aroma, taste, and mouthfeel are all a bit light, which is dissapointing after such an eyeful. Overall, not the best IPA, but a very drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Orangy, citrus aroma. Clear and deep golden. Zesty, peppery. Smooth with a long crisp drying.

Pretty weak for an IPA compared to any of the ’big’ IPAs like Stone, Alesmith, Great Divide, Dogfish, etc. But still, not a bad IPA, not too expensive. I could see ’beer newbs’ breaking their teeth on this before stepping up to better beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Is this an IPA? Certainly much weaker and bitter than almost all ofther PNW IPAs. I found the flavor to be average and lacking any distinction and the it seems they went light on the hops. An IPA made for people who don’t like bitterness or hops in my opinion. Second rate.

clear light amber pour, frothy white head. lots of pine/grass hops in the aroma. very clean tasting with some good earthy notes, with crisp hoppy finish. a great IPA.

Golden amber color. Orange and lemon aroma. Slightly grassy in the malt department. Insane hoppiness. For the money, theis is an outstanding IPA.This stuff rules.
