3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at brewery, pours amber/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of funky citrus and resiny pine. Taste is full bodied vanilla and caramel riding nicely on top of a bitter resinous pine. Well rounded with the oak and IPA characteristics, nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange-amber with white head, aroma has nice notes of pine, grass, some earth, oak, some caramel as well. Taste is a nice balance of bitter pine and grass, some sweet caramel and vanilla, dried out by the oak and finishing nice and bitter. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper color. This off white head that lasts with some nice lacing. Aroma is smokey, wooden and dusty. Creamy mouthfeel. Subdued bitterness and hop flavor. Mild bitterness. Well balanced. More body than most IPAs I have had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fun alternative to a normal IPA (the Titan perhaps?). Pours amber with a medium off-white head, slightly hazy and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, oak and a very balanced and light citrus and pine touch. Not as extreme as most american IPA:s there. Taste is malty caramel and sweet to begin with, then the hops kick in for a nice citric bitter finish. Body is rich and creamy, very nice!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aroma of oak, caramel, vanilla, citrus. The appearance is a nice deep amber, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, malt forward, caramel, oak upfront, citrus blending in nicely. The finish is citrus and pine hops. Medium in body, creamy mouthfeel. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of wood, citrus, and a bit of hops. Flavor is more malty than expected for an IPA-citrus, pine, hops, and definitely wood. Very well-balanced beer. Nicely done.
