I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

16 oz tall boy, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours dark amber with a large white soapy head leaving layered lace and a ice cream float head. Aroma is earthy malts, some pine, pretty subdued overall. The taste is caramel malt, rye, bready, spicy hops, grain, thick and chewy with a thin mouthfeel. Not bad.

16 oz can from a four pack bought in Thompson Falls, MT. Canned a month and a half ago. Pours filtered copper with a large off-white head with great retention and lace. Aroma is pretty lackluster with vague caramel malt, chalk. Taste is kind of dull as well--medium bitterness, kind of sweet. Like the pale ale, no real hop character other than the bitterness. Not bad, but it’s boring.

16 oz pour from chilled can into nonic pint. Orange and hazy with a solid head. Full bodied and creamy. Fruity and citrusy. Just the right amount of sweetness. A great IPA. Hides the alcohol well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a billowy white head of two finger height. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is mainly a blend of a citrus grapefruit hop aroma and a bready and slightly doughy smell. Along with these smells comes some other aromas of a tropical fruit natures as well as some nice pine hop smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather strong bitter grapefruit flavor mixed with a drier cracker like malt bill. As the taste advances the grapefruit remains relatively constant but is joined by other hop flavors of a more pine and earthy nature. The little bit of a fruit and caramel that are present upfront, quickly fade with the hops really taking command of the taste as the flavors move onto the end. All in all, due to the loss of the sweet and the increase in the hop, as well as the drier malt and a little bit of booziness that sneaks it way into the later portions of the taste, one is left with a dry and bitter taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner side for a brew of 6.5 % abv. with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body is actually quite appropriate for the very dry flavors of the brew adding a dimension of crispness to the overall feel.
Overall – A decent IPA overall that is a bit on the crisper side. While decent, it really is nothing all that out of the ordinary. One to give a go to, in order to see what you think. But for me, its just sorta standard.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep, clear golden color with a nice sized light head. Fairly dark color for an IPA. Aroma is fairly nondescript. Not a whole lot of whop aroma or anything else other than maybe some sort of sweet smell. Slightly sweet flavor with just a hint of hop bitterness. I’ve had this been a number of times before and always thought it was better than the can I am rating. Maybe this is an off batch, but this doesn’t taste so much like an IPA as it does maybe a red ale.
