3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Post Falls, ID. Pours murky orange-brown, making it look more like a seriously unfiltered Belgian ale than an American IPA. Has a medium collapsing off-white head that leaves a ring and skiff of ugly big-bubbly foam. Aroma isn’t all that assertive, but it’s lemon citrusy, caramel malt. Taste is a little worty, chalky; lightly bittersweet. Palate is average for style. Not too impressive. I wonder how old this thing is.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle picked up at Yokes
Pours cloudy golden with a medium sized off white head, good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, dusty and pine. Taste is malty, sweet caramel, earthy and pine resin
A decent IPA, a little too malty for me though but it does have a nice pine resin bitterness in the finish to help with the malty sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at 192 lake trail taproom. From my notes. Pours a copper color with an incredible fresh hop aroma. This beer had me from there. Nice, hoppy IPA that’s simple to drink and very refreshing. Finishes slightly on the bitter side. Really enjoyed this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy amber to red/orange (tinted along the sides) color. There was a light half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing conveying itself along the sides of the glass.
The smell had a decent intrusive citrus to piney bitterness.
The taste followed the aroma in a nice way.
On the palate, this one sat right about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp and wanted to try to be invasive to pummel my tongue into submission but it didn’t.
Overall, this was a mostly decent AIPA that I think I could have again.

On tap at the brew pub. Clear amber pour with a white head. Smooth and creamy. Not really overwhelmingly bitter. Nice malty backbone. Somewhat bland and nondescript hops. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roll this beer if drinking from the bottle, as it was separated. Very dry and bitter on the bottom. Refreshingly did not have grapefruit profile that a lot of big IPA’s have nowadays.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice IPA. Tastes stronger than its ABV, like a double IPA. Reminds me of Silver City St Florian.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a rather hazy amber color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is light with some floral elements to it, though the smell is not overwhelming. Taste is bitter and quite dry, though somewhat long lasting on the palate.
