3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle. Phenomenal citrusy, almost tropical, aroma. The first 6 oz. were lively, hoppy, and tasty. The last 16 oz. were just cloyingly sticky and sweet for my palate. The finish was syrupy and a little long for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden brown from the bomber with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of resinous piney and floral hops with a bunch of caramel malts behind it. Taste follows, a hint of oxidation, solid clean bitterness, good balance. A decent old school west coast IPA.

Aromas of grapefruit, pine and hay. Cloudy copper with small white head. Assertive bitterness, that is surprisingly smooth and pleasant, is married well with malty backbone and alcohol. Lingering sweet bitternes on the tongue. Overall great ipa. ??
