3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light straw and maze color under latte froth head (bottle). Had this one at beer fest in MT and was not terribly impressed. Forgettable IPA: hoppy, but unfortunately balanced. Palate/mouthfeel is nice and full, sort of mealy but bright citrus refreshes. Fine IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper appearance, decent head faded. Nice upfront aroma of grapefruit as the Cascades introduce themselves. Grapefruit is also the dominant flavor note, with a tiny bit of toffee and biscuit to balance. Tiny bit of medicinal touch creeps in at the very end once it is warm. Could have been more full bodied, but all in all an enjoyable beer.

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.

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.
