3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, no dating on the bottle that I could find. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells mostly like pine and citrusy (orange peel, grapefruit) hops, along with some bready malt. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some wheatiness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s coating and a bit creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I liked it OK, but I didn’t think it was one of the better IPA’s I’ve had. Since this bottle was given to me from one of my friends, I really have no idea how old it is. I’d like to try this again in the future.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Pours a light amber with a very frothy head. Aroma is hops, hop resins, earthenware, something chemical / moth ball-y. Taste is moderate bitterness with a bit of metallic / tinny taste. Wonder if I got an older bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at Elevated on S. Mpls. Consumed in pint glass. Golden orange with minor off white, maybe tan head. Huge aroma of hops and pine. Leads into a hop forward IPA with some caramel malt balance. Slight pine and floral. Aftertaste is resiny and slightly bitter. Coats the mouth with an oily presence. Easy to drink and enjoyable although not as unique as expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice enough IPA. Clean sweetish caramel malts but not too much, bright fresh citrus and floral hops, good balance, semi-dry at the finish, almost creamy mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice beer. Good copper color and fruitful head. Hop palate is not wrecking but enough to know what you have. Decent alcohol carries.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, golden amber color with white head. Aroma notes of tropical fruity citrus/piney hops and caramel malt. Taste adds bitter grapefruit, resin, citrus zest, some dankness and herbal notes. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with lingering grapefruity/pine hop bitterness. Wonderfully complex IPA.
