2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden with a blanketous white head. Stinky fruity, hop aroma. Flavor is really on the malty side of an IPA but has some bitterness. The german influence isn’t helping this one. It is more.traditional though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Columbus location. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of hops, grapefruit and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Gordon Biersch-Columbus. The waiter called it "Northwest-Style IPA" or some such business; it was their seasonal selection. Pours a clear copper with a small, lasting eggshell head. The aroma did suggest northwest US hops, with citrus and pine, caramel malts, toasted sugars, and crackers. The flavor followed suit; resinous and citrusy hops, earth, toasted and caramel malts. Not bad at all. Light-medium bodied, with subtle bitterness and moderate carbonation. I enjoyed this.
