4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 7/13/12 from a 12oz bottle. Pours clear, bright orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick and messy lacing. The nose is citrus and floral hops with tons of orange peel, a hint of grass, along with some hay and cereal malt. The flavor is a nice balance between the hay and cereal malt, with the grassy, floral, and orange peel hops showing some nice bitterness. The body is on the lighter side of medium with average carbonation and a medium bitter orange peel hops finish. This is a nice, easy-drinking IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, light amber with a thin white head. Glorious green hops on the nose. One you can sniff for hours. Medium bodied IPA with heavier malts than you might expect and a touch of sweetness before the hops take over the palate on the finish.
