3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Have wanted to try this for a long time. Love the brewery. Now the beer.
A beautiful rocky head that clings to the glass in chunks. Golden orange and clear body.
Surprisingly some bready, nutty notes immediately apparent with the citrus and apricot aroma. Pleasant.
Taste is very balanced and smooth. Malty sweetness with average bitterness. Hops are grassy and fresh-tasting.
The texture is very soft almost pillowy. I was expecting a little rougher texture so I don’t know what to make of it except enjoyment.
The beer goes down so easy. But the memory of it lingers long afterwards. Body is medium-to-full. Not an imperial, but close. Excellent brew. I was not disappointed.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
8/6/14. Bottle. Just a really solid IPA. Nice nose and solid mouth. Well rounded. Not as up front as far west coast offerings, but that is OK.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy copper beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet grain and light pine and melon. The flavor is balanced, a little earthy, a little fruity, and a strong dose of bitterness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Light copper with a lasting head. Big piney dankness and a kiss of citrus on the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Starts hoppy with a rich malty sweetness carrying you back to a hoppy kick. Lots of resinous and citrus notes. Crisp. Quite enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle bottled Feb 19, 2014. Pours a near clear copper with a one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma is probably a bit faded. Slightly bready with a touch of caramel, citrus, resin, tropical fruits, and pine. Taste is bitter but balanced. Notes of resin, pine, tropical fruit, and a short, slightly alcohol finish. Medium-full body with with a medium carbonation. Slight syrup/resin texture in the mouth. Smooth and easy to drink. Overall really nice. I wish the bottle was fresher but still solid flavours in an easy drinking package.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a hazy and pale orange gold color with an off white head. The head has good retention and leaves lots of sticky lacing all over the glass. The aroma has a light mix of sweet malt and even lighter earthy hops. I thought this was a little odd for an IPA to have more maltiness then hop notes in the aroma. There is a good bit of fruity and bready maltiness up front here with just enough bitterness and earthy green plant like hop flavor to give it some balance towards an IPA. The body and carbonation are right on but I am finding myself trying to like this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the bottle! Clear dark gold with white head. A little grainy, then hops, delicate citrus and floral aroma. Bitter, hoppy, ripe citrus and rather mild taste. Medium-bodied, bitter and rather dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Super Deli Mart. Pours light golden copper with thin white head. Aroma is sweet fruity malt and a hint of dry hops. Taste is thick chewy sweet malt with nicely floral earthy hops on the back. Surprisingly malt-driven for an IPA, but quite tasty nonetheless.
