3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clean amber slightly red, not much head to speak of. Lots of floral hops in the nose, some malt. Not too much hops in the flavors, more malty. Smooth IPA.

Cleam and refreshing. Not overly hoppy and has a bit more body than first expected. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at the brewpub in Seattle. Excellent IPA in the true west coast style. Has a light copper color appearance, sticky off-white head with good lacing. Has a good mouth-numbing grapefruit flavor that I crave for every so often. Stays strong to the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Standard amber color with typical head and lacing. Clean dry hopped aroma, very floral. Good balance with a sweet dry and bitter finish. Not the best IPA but metter than most macro ipas. I'm spoiled with one of the IPAs here at a local brewpub.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A crystal clear amber color on the pour, the head monstrous in size, creamy in texture, a winsome light tan in color and the lace a velvety sheet to conceal the glass. Sweet malt, the aroma of hops, citrus crisp and a real treat to the old schnozzle, start sweet and malt laden, the top is light to middling in its feel. Finish is delicately acidic, the hops are prickly in their spicy bite, a mid-range IPA, not overpowering, just plain drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light straw color with a nice frothy head. Nose of dry hops with a taste to match. VERY DRY! One of the driest ales on planet earth. I love hops and this was not in the least too much for me but it needed more balance.

Barepaw? go back to the jungle. The idea of IPA is bitterness. This is about as mild as an IPA gets. Excellent stank..solid beer smell. She give good froathy head...orange brown with hints of some of some of the good stuff floating around in the bottle.
