4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - Light hoppy aroma,
Appearance - Clear Amber, light head
Taste - Nice smooth IPA; nowhere near as bitter as most American IPAs
Palate - Medium body, smooth finish
Overall - Seeing Northwest or Cascadian hops in the name often scares me but this is nowhere near as bitter; very smooth for an IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange with a moderate Rocky beige head. Caramel malt nose has a touch of wood. Soft toasted malt character upfront has notes of vanilla and oak. Subtle hops in midtaste have a peppery note. The oakiness comes through in the finish, but it is just an accent, not very prominent. Excellent IPA is eminently drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml bottle. Amber pour, large foamy offwhite head. The aroma is totally muted hop wise, heavy oak, vannilla, orange, spice. Flavor is orange and oak, vanilla, some plastic, still afirm bitterness which at this point just detracts. Just a stale ipa really.

Nothing exciting. I would put it at the middle of everything. Didn’t taste the oak or pine they mention. Tap

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Pours a medium clear orange and makes a small off while head. Good lacing down the glass. Aroma of vanilla, hops, oak. Tastes lightly of light hops, sugar, and oak. For those that have been put off by overpowering hop bitterness, you might want to give Rumble a try.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Slightly hoppy aroma. Dark orange, hazy color with a white head that fades, but leaves a nice lacing. Great Taste! Somewhat light bitterness, with a little piney taste first, then citrus, and a piney aftertaste that lingers a little. Well balanced. Wood aging is subtle, and not very pronounced. Somewhat full bodied. Overall, a great IPA more of what I consider "old school."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy dark orange with big fluffy white head that lasts and leaves some lacing. Aroma is not overpowering, but has floral and citrus hops, vanilla and perhaps oak. Taste is sweet and malty with bitterness coming out in the long finish. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. This is a well-balanced, subtle IPA well worth trying.
