2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark golden/pale brown with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a little off with some light grassy hops, some cereal/caramel notes, and some earthy musk hints. Pretty odd. Decent mouthfeel with solid carbonation. Taste is odd again. Slight hop bitterness with a quick hint of sweentess on the finish along with an out of place nutty quality. Reminds me of a slightly hoppy cream ale. Not good for an IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
More malt and earthiness than most IPAs, caramel nut flavor leads to a skunky dirtiness and a hoppy finish. Not a standout IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
cloudy dark yellow appearance. pretty good aroma though. bread, hay. leaves a dry taste in my mouth. A better than average beer. Not much of a citrusey flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slight citrus with a hint of spruce aroma. Light mouth feel overpowered by bitterness with only a slight hop cut to it. More of a lager with more hop than your run of the mill mainstream beer.

Put one of these down last trip to Seattle. Not really what I’m looking for in an IPA - no hop punch

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours translucent dark straw with splotchy off-white head. Nose is very spicy, with white pepper, earthy florals, pale malt, noble hops. Tastes hoppy, in a noble sense, with a lot of bittering flavor, white peppery spice, pale malt, and a big IBU load.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tannish colored and clear, some rising bubbles, 1 finger head and pretty good lace.
Aroma is a bit subdued but pleasant. There’s a mixture of hops and bready, caramel malts.
Flavor is more pronounced. Malts are forward, caramel, bread, toast, with a nice balance of citrus and floral hops.
Body is medium with smooth carbonation. Bitterness is clean but plentiful, with a lingering bitter finish.
Overall it’s tasty, if not outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance has a golden orange color supporting a thin dissipating head and little spotty lace. Smell of citrus with nothing complex involving the hops and malt. Taste of the grapefruit bitter, soft caramel malt with a good dose of hops that survive to the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a light medium with good carbonation. A faily simple IPA.
