4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all about.
The smell started off with a big burst of citrus hops running over light piney notes and then a slight floral setting balances within.
The taste copied the smell to have a nice bittersweet burst of hops to malts, nicely balanced. A light piney to citrus aftertaste leads into a refined sweet citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right for an AIPA - slightly back to allow the hops to take the lead on the bitterness and harshness on my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

T: Piney, Crackers, Mild Bittering Hops

Draft at Standard in Portland, OR on 1 June 2013.
Poured a slightly hazy amber with a thin, but dense white head. Aroma of floral hops, pine and tropical fruit. Grapefruit hop flavours with bready notes and some caramel sweetness. Nicely balanced bitter finish of hop resin and grains.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. I successfully predicted a few of the hop aromas here - cascade and centennial. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, big and fruity sweet hop aroma with moderate caramel. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, a little too sweet for my tastes but really nice flavors here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark orange with yellow hues to it. Flavor is quite juicy and wet but no one particular fruit leaps to mind. Aroma is peppery and pine. Some of that underlies the flavor as well.

Six pack of cans picked up from the Amaco by my hotel. Once the can is opened, some foam comes out the top. Donít worry moní itís no infected. Could not tell u what it looks like since it was enjoyed in can form. Nose has light resin. Taste is balanced, maybe a small fraction to the bitter side. Some malt sweetness prevails, resin. Medium body. Well done.
