Pours an amber orange with a beige head and aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Well balanced, with sweet, toasted malt, bittering hops, citrus, caramel, straw, and bready notes with a slight bitter finish. Drinkable, solid ale

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice crisp amber coloured body with a copper glow and a two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright citrus hops with pine, alcohol, resin and a bunch more fresh hops - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh hop flavour with piney and citrus flavour, some earthy toffee and a great malt backbone. Aftertaste shows a great hop bitterness with a sweet finish from the caramel, a little earthiness, but a perfectly balanced malt backbone. Overall, a great beer and one that should be sampled by everyone - if you can get it, that is. I sampled this 12 ounce stubby bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 10-February-2013 for US$1.33 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 07-March-2013.

Cask served in an imperial pint at Capone’s in Coeur D’Alene. Pours a mostly clear gold-amber with a finger of soft off-white head. Aroma of sweet and bready malts, toffee, sugar, citrusy hops, and a bit of buttered popcorn. The flavor works better, with some good fresh citrusy hops, caramel malts, resin, tea, and nectar. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Nice hoppy amber.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber with a sepia tint. Hearty head and generous lacing down the glass. The nose is a mix of caramel and hazelnut. Medium to full bodied, this enters with some sweetish malts, but yields quickly to a heavy dose of hop bitterness. Clean, crisp mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Slightly murky copper-amber color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, sweet caramel and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, hops and citrus. The finish is short with an earthy malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

This is an IPA, I don’t care WHAT the brew calls it. It’s pretty bitter like most IPA brewed in America now, but there is absolutely nothing special going on with this beer. I guess it’s ok, but I’m just so bored with this over reliance on bitterness. Wake up America...there are better styles out there.
