3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is fruity with hits on malt and hops. Amber/orange cloudy color with good lacing and medium tan head. Flavor is good but has somewhat of an odd aftertaste. Not a bad IPA just nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
O-town throwdown III 2007. Bomber shared by hopscotch. Pours a hazy peachy amber with a thin head. Aroma is loaded with DMS- tons of cream of wheat doughiness, yeasty dirtiness, grass, chalky and mineral with stale cheesy hops. Flavor is more doughy yeast, corny dms, wheat dough, pastry dough, grass, stale cheesy hops, light toast and a light bitterness- lots going wrong here. Sucks cuz it seems they have probably fixed these problems. My notes are from 3 years ago, but hey are pretty detailed. Ill try to find a bottle and re-rate.

Great sessionable IPA from NorCal...had a few bottles while spending some time in the mountains near Weaverville. Light, flavorful, and priced right!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
very bubbly, clear golden color, decent white head. unfiltered, floaties at the bottom of the bottle. smelled hoppy and floral. taste is sweet, mildly hoppy, yet strong at the same time. as they say with altoids, "curiously" hoppy. not enough to make your tongue curl up, just a tease. pretty good!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by puzzl. Pale amber beer with a nice clean crisp hoppy aroma. Orange and grapefruit over a fairly clean malt base. The aroma is more impressive than the flavour and the beer doesn’t taste nearly as hoppy as it smells. Light breadiness. Still, quite good, if indistinct.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by puzzl. Gold / amber pour, some haze. Aroma is nice, citrus hops, fresh, some caramel malt. Flavor is decently balanced, medium bitterness, same citrus and malt presence. Good but nothing to set it apart.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice IPA. Pours orange with a small head. Aroma is sharp citrus in nature. Taste is full in the mouth. Very prominent citrus bitterness that finishes cleanly.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange color with nice sized off-white head. Nice nose of citurs and pine. Flavor is more hoppy than the nose leads on. Big hit up top, then the slight malty flavor rounds out this medium body brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is citrus, pine, some wood, some grass. Medium bodied, moderate to low bitterness. Somewhat light, doesn’t bring the big hop flavors I expect from the C hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Nose is nice citrus hoppiness. Decent looking beer with a full head. Flavor is a good blend of the pineapple hops and a sweetness from the malt, that subsides to a clean bitter finish.
