October 6, 2012 ; 6% abv, 750 mL bottle, BBD Oct 29/12; rock glass
Citrus hops dominate. Pours a caramel colour with a nice tan head. Good looking beer. Balanced caramel malts with grapefruit citrus hops. Resin finish is lingering. A little thin in the body but overall, clean character. Highly drinkable, which isn’t a great thing for an IPA (I think). Resin bitterness is a bit too powerful.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma includes notes of malt, grapefruit and mango. Tasting notes include caramel and buttery malts, and citrus and pine hops, and finishes with a crisp bitter bite. Not bad! I think they found a great mix of malt and hops in this one!

Light orange/amber body with foamy white head and nice lacing. Citrus and warm malt aroma. Taste is not crazy bitter, but nice hoppiness and a bit of nuttiness. Medium palate. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml brown bottle. Deep golden, clear. Low sitting white cap with a creamy bead. Nose has some grapefruit, orange and is a bit woody and piney. Taste has light caramel base malt, pine and woody notes than blend into a bright grapefruity and fruity finish. Aftertaste has grapefruit and leafy hop. Bitterness is light. Actually a pretty good IPA from a brewery that usually doesn’t impress me too much.

I thought this was nothing special. Aromas of toast and dark malts. More bitter toasty malts in the flavor... Maybe some hop finish... Otherwise average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml capped bottle pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with herbal notes. Taste is predominantly herbal with some grapefruit and pine hop bitterness balanced nicely with a light roasted caramel malty sweetness. This is a unique and interesting IPA and one that is definitely worth checking out.
