Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a bright hazy amber with a minimal layer of off white head. Aroma of hops and hints of grapefruit. Taste of upfront bitter that lingers.

The beer pours copper with a off white head. The aroma is balanced with the west coast hop aroma that is expected citrus, pine and grapefruits. This is balanced by some malty sweetness.
Tasting this has the hoppy bitterness you would expect, but its not overpowering. Overall its a nice IPA.

From bottle, pours cloudy orange, short white head lasts a good while. Aroma was muted but citrus. Nice malt caramel balanced flavor. A little pricey in our neck of the woods.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost brilliant coppery amber colour. Massive cauliflower bubbly head. Aroma is balanced and fresh pine resin, not too overpowering. Taste is deep bitter and malty resin, upfront, none of that poncy grapefruitiness and citrus. Pine and resin. But in a balanced way, not in-your-face.

Backlog. Similar to it’s name, this is just one of the many other good west-coast ipas i’ve come across, not enough to make a lasting impression though.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ambrée. Beau gros collet légèrement teinté. Un nez qui fait rêver. Très fruité. Agrume pamplemousse. Des houblon résineux. Un léger caramel en arrière plan. Je salive. En bouche on a une amertume franche et puissante qui persiste longtemps en bouche. Un filet de caramel est en équilibre avec les houblon qui offre des arômes de fruit tropicaux, d'agrume et de résine intense. Une finale sèche exige une autre gorgé, quoi?? Déjà fini? Ouvrons en une autre!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a slight red cast. Very strong head with exceptional lacing. The nose is a blend of hops - grapefruit and other citrus over a light pine resin overlaying a subtle malt sweetness. The body is almost medium with a nice smooth texture. Normal carbonation level. The outstanding flavor profile is complex and well balanced. Like the nose, grapefruit and other citrus lead with an earthy pine in the background. A biscuit malt sweetness appears in the middle, which rapidly flows into a quite nice tart bitterness. The finish is smooth and a nice tartness lingers. A bit more carbonation effervescence would accentuate the flavor of the finish and the underlying hop resin.

Very bitter. Like more bitter than the typical IPA. I like bitter but this was a little too bitter. I did like it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a big head that quickly dissipates to a thin wispy white layer of foam that clings to the sides of the glass. Hop dominate aroma with pine, perfume, citrus, and grassy notes. Medium to high hop flavor with sweet malt, citrus, grapefruit, pine, and resinous characteristics. The finish is fairly dry with just a hint of grapefruit that lingers on the tongue. Medium body and carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. A very good IPA that is clean and refreshing.
