2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Huh. I bought four bottles of this in a mix-your-own six-pack at the supermarket because I could swear I remember someone telling me itís a nice big IPA,. Either II remember wrong or whoever told me doesnít know IPA from pinot noir., Itís not a bad beer, mind you; itís just not anything like I expected. Seemed a lot maltier than it did hoppy. No hops on the finish, which IMHO is weak. Rating would be higher if it wasnít masquerading as an IPA. Would drink it if I was working in the yard in the summer...but it just doesnít have the oomph I anticipated. .

Bottle. Drank this straight from the bottle, I suppose this pours regular ipa style. Not sure about colour though. Aroma is malty and has touches of grapefruit and orange zest. Flavor is very mild bitter, juicy hops and malty sweet aftertaste. Medium carbonation, long light bitter aftertaste. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty, slightly minerally nose, medium light body, nicely balanced bitterness and maltiness. Nice hop flavor, with a moderately bitter finish. Reminiscent of an English pub bitter, but at 6%, is too strong for its body and complexity. Would be an excellent session beer if they could get this flavor into a 4% ABV beer.

Solid NW IPA. Very citrusy, I want to say grapefruit, on the nose. Refreshing. Quaffable. Good middle of the road bitterness and doesnít linger on the palette unnecessarily long.

355ml bottle. Pours a slightly golden orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of grapefruit, peach, tropical fruit, caramel malt and grass. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, peach and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured out Amber. 12ļSRM.
Nose has wet funky malty aroma. Pineapple and citrus and dank, moist, humid aromas.
Mouthfeel is thick soapy. Palate has full-bodied malt with a nice thick graham cracker and barley toast flavor. This is a perfect platform on which to appreciate the hops which are citrus, pine, grapefruit peel, bitter melon. There is a slightly spicy but bitter component to this, so Iím going to say hyssop.
Finish is admirably and luxuriously long. Bitter melon, resin, raw pine needles, sap and a pleasantly floral component suggesting freesias.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin head and minimal lacing. Smells woodsy and fruity. Has a very light taste, rather watery, but is very well balanced overall. Decent bitterness and very good aftertaste. Best on a hot day.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In a bottle in Miami Beach 060316 11:23 code. Clear light amber color, smell is sweet malt and English hops. Metallic taste detracts significantly from an otherwise nice light British style IPA. I wonder what their dO2 is at bottling; this is oxidation. A shame, it is otherwise pretty tasty.
