4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a clear darker gold with a one finger white head. Really good head retention with decent lacing.
Aroma is much better than many other IPA’s I have had. Lots and lots of pine along with a touch of citrus. Really a nice blend of earth and citrus here. A little bit of light wood too with pinecones.
The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. More pine than citrus but not nearly as strong as was present in the aroma. Moderate to high bitterness throughout along with some more wood and pine resin. Finish is moderately sticky with bitterness lingering long after all flavors have subsided.
Overall, a better than average IPA. It is definitely hop-centric with malt being nearly undetectable but the hops in this really work well. One to pick up every now and then.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz single bottle on sale at Supermarket Liquors. Orange and light hazy appearance with a sticky head. Old, musty aroma with notes of cardboard and fruity esters. The flavor adds medium hop bitterness, light sweetness and oxidization. A little harsh and hard to drink. Meh.

Rated based on notes taken 29 July 2012 -- A nice brew. More of an earthy IPA than the citrus I prefer.
