Bottle. Pours a nice clear gold with white head. Aroma is floral, leafy, hints of fruit esters with a balanced maltiness. Flavor is very much the same with a nice balanced bitterness, hints of caramel, crisp. Mouthfeel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, nice, simple, enjoyable IPA.

Honestly, I donít smell much of anything. Odd. Has a nice, clear color between gold and copper, and a tiny white head. Mostly bitter taste, with just a hint of sweetness. The sweetness gets a bit stronger during the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, Oct 24 11 EDT- Pours orange autumn with a one finger creamy head and lots of carbonation bubbles rising to the surface, lace is also good, it creates a thin blanket on the glass. The aroma is Northwest piney hops and a little citrus, and maybe some pepper. The taste is where this beer kind of falls apart, there isnít much taste, there is a mild bitterness, but overall really bland. Body is thin, carbonation is high. Overall this beer started out nice, better than expected, but the taste and palate was the downfall of this beer, if only they could make it taste like it smells.

12 oz bottle into tulip. Bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours a clear deep gold with a medium off-white lacy head with great retention. Aroma is cat piss, metal, sticky buns, grain. Taste is bittersweet and sour. Has a grainy aftertaste. Highly carbonated with a medium body. Very simplistic, but very drinkable. Really good for a Henryís.

It was OK. Okay taste, a bit too much of whatever that flavor is that I donít like that I still donít know what is. LOL I wasnít much into drinking it at the time and left half of it in the fridge for a few days. It wasnít that great a few days later.

12oz Bottle Ė Gravity Beer Market Ė Olympia, WA
Golden in color, cloudy with a thin white head. Slight hops aroma. Very light hops flavor this was more like a pale ale. Nice malt with a dry finish.

12oz btl. Pours clear amber and lightly fizzy. Palate is full bodied and lively. The taste is somewhat short and bitter and falls a little flat. Drinkability is better than average, but most IPAís Iíve tested are far superior.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean IPA, though it lacks depth. Hops are pleasant but a bit one-dimensional and could use more aromatics. Malts are light, bready and cracker-like. Bitterness is mild to moderate and balanced. Finish is dryish and underwhelming. Overall, itís a very affordable and easy-drinking IPA, but itís vapid.

2008 Bottle - Honestly one of the best big batch IPA’s I’ve had...pours gold with a moderate white head...bright aroma of citrus, flavour is hop forward and lightly malted, very dry...way more enjoyable than I expected..
