4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours bright golden orange with a small white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of dank weed, citrus, pine resin, and some light sweet malts. Taste is of fresh citrus juice, pine, freshly cut grass, dank weed and some sweet malts in the background. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, refreshing, juicy finish. overall, a super tasty, refreshing, and drinkable APA that is a great session ale.

Gotta love the artwork reminiscent of the old comix. Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours amber/copper with a 3 finger creamy/foamy off-white/beige head. Authentic cat pee aroma. Makes my nostrils itch. Med body or better. Flavor is extremely citrus, followed by some woody? roasted malt. Fits the style but is way out in front on use of ingredients. Comes across hoppy, dry, smooth, mellow, hoppy! Just excellent.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A forward-thinking west-coast style pale, I can see why many people think it should be called an IPA. The aroma is pungent and floral with lots of hops. Has a slightly hazy golden color and pours with a big white head. Tastes almost like a single-hop, very pronounced hops and citrus, slight grassy flavor and a dry clean finish. Slightly sticky on the palate, overall a damn fine pale, but for me a little more grain presence would raise this brew to the level of the best pales around. Looking forward to more from Ironfire!

On tap. Pours with a clear golden hued body with minimal head formation. Aromas are of DMTS (green onions), grassy, and tangerine. Low malt, pretty clean. Flavors are bitter, dry, grassy. Light malt character. Very clean. Low carbonation. Bitterness is a bit strong and lasts on the tongue. Not bad for a brand new brewery. Iím looking forward to trying more beers from these guys despite the low number.

light orange color. Citrus nose, but not overpowering. Piney hop flavor, but the malts play a part as well. Some lasting hop sweetness and bitterness. A pretty good pale ale.
