2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Wilburs poured into tulip - Pours amber with a 2 finger off-white head; A sugary sweetness, malt, and a good dose of hops both grassy and floral to the nose; A sour bitterness on the initial taste with TONS of floral hops and a weird malty note; Very bitter hop aftertaste; Medium body that fades to dry; Carbonation is present but doesnít jump out at you; Didnít like this much at all. Sat in the cellar for a month. Pretty disappointed. No citrus at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow orange hue, pine and hops aroma. Heavy pine taste and a hint of peppers? A different taste but sometimes different is good. Seems a little too carbonated and light bodied though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super nose with sweet bananas and light floral hops. Decent color that leaves little lacing on the glass. Fairly sweet and grassy up front with a good balance of hops and malts. Very refreshing sessionable ale.

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with white frothy head. Aroma is floral hops and sweet caramel malt. Taste is slightly bitter with a good balance of hops and malt. A slight aftertaste. Light sweetness. Overall not too bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at 99 Bottles in Federal Way. Grassy aroma. Sweet grass and hay flavor profile with just a hint of hop-citrus bite. A very middle of the road IPA. Although the info here indicates 6.5% alcohol, the in-store literature read 5.5%.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2006 This is a decent English style IPA but I prefer the West Coast style. Fruity aroma with a clean off white head. Nice legs hold to the glass. Taste hits you with the malt then comes on with a soft hop flavor and leaves you with a subtle bitterness on the tongue. Not my favorite but good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 Very light amber with lots of bubbles that cling to glass. Strong fruity aroma. Barely bitter, slightly skunky start with a fruity finish that lingers bitter then fruity. Strikingly smooth, clean feel. A favorite from this area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy blood orange, with a one-inch head and nice lacing, hoppy and citrus nose, medium-bodied malt backbone, slightly lacking malt depth, finishing a bit dry. All in all, a pretty good beer and true-to-type in the APA style.
