3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Pine Bar. Textbook visuals for an American IPA -- rustic amber, with a firm white tan foam head. The aroma is caged, but this drinks with a nice creamy mouthfeel, and the flavors are artfully balanced. Carries plenty enough woodsy hoppiness to satisfy the hopheads, but is also well founded in a firm, malty base. (#5076, 6/25/2013)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours from the its aluminum container a delicately hazed, golden-orange body with a sizable, whitish, sudsy head.
Smell: Pale malts, with middling bready, grainy characteristics and a sweet-scented element to it a bit like caramel or toffee. Lightly floral, adequately citrusy hops, with some grassy hints to it all.
Taste: Bready pale malts, somewhat grainy in taste, with a caramelized sugar sweetness. Floral, lightly grassy, citrusy hops (lemon, orange) with a moderate degree of bitterness delivered.
Mouthfeel: This one falls just shy of medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Not bad. It has some nice flavors and an easy-going body to keep things mobile.

On draft, pours a deep amber color. Head has a very earthy nose, smells like wet soil. Strong floral taste. Medium hoppy flavor, with slightly dry finish. Overall a solid IPA but not the best choice out there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really tasty IPA which has a good crisp caramel flavored malt backbone, but heavily hopped with earthy, resinous, and citrusy hops. Leaves a bit of an earthy bitterness aftertaste, but overall very drinkable.
