Horrible. Tastes like a bottle of granny perfume. Super flowery. Wrong. Just wrong. I’m gonna dump the other 5 in my neighbors yard.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 8/15/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big orange, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, floral, herbal, and light pine. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of orange zest, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, herbal, floral, bread, and light pine. Moderate amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, peach, pineapple, herbal, and light pine on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of hop flavors with a good bitterness/sweetness balance as well. No cloying flavors after the finish at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. Well balanced with nice hop flavors; extremely smooth and easy to drink. Really enjoyed this.

Tap. Pours clear amber with average, fizzy white head; decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is heavy floral and grassy hops, orange peel, cereal and caramel malts, citrus, light pine, and some wheat notes. Flavor is initially sweet malts followed by good floral hops (light bitterness) and light citrus esters; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty standard, average IPA other than its emphasis on malts. This is a malt forward beer that forces the hops to wait their turn. Served ice cold at the Davenport Tower bar in Spokane, WA this IPA has fantastic lacing. Sweet malt on the nose which blasts you when it hits your tongue. Nice, light sweet malt with a touch of hoppy citrus. Run-of-the-mill IPA which stands out due to its malty goodness.
