On tap at RnH, 8/6/2010.
Strong floral fresh hop aroma, like a muted Pliny. Taste less distinct--expected hop flavors, without as much freshness as the aroma. Still very good, a quite above-average locally produced IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Hazy golden pour. Thick, pillowy sticky head. The nose is quite piny and resinous with a touch of light citrus. Very bright sticky hop nose. Tooth-coating hop oils and a nice sticky hop character. Really quite fresh. The malts are definitely here but they don’t really interfere with the hops at all. As it warms up the hops fade a little bit leaving a more juicy orange-citrus from behind the bright pine resin. Nice, solid well-crafted IPA

Appearance: Pours an orange color with a white head
Flavor: Taste is resiny as well, mild sweetness, medium bitter

Overall, this beer is pretty nice. This is my first Kelso beer, though I have had a bunch of the Heartland stuff, and I now see they are related through Greenpoint. Anyway, I liked this beer, a very solid IPA.
