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.

Picked this 12oz can at the COOP a couple days ago.. Pours with a decent white head that shows okay lacing atop a clear golden brew.
Nose is nicely hopped... tropical fruitiness and onion/garlic.. weird combination but the allium notes are not overblown.
Good hoppy bitterness that is balanced barely by a decent amount of residual pale maltiness... Not a big fan of the onion/garlic hops but they work in this stretch and arenít overdone.
Body is light/medium... carbonation could be a touch higher IMO.

Sweet, flowery, and overflowing with tropical fruit aroma. Clear amber with a thin creamy head. Sweet fruity taste with a nice bitter finish.

This seemed like a well balanced and classy IPA. And it gets to the point where there is very little to distinguish between all of these craft-brewed IPAs. There are so many of them and most of them are quite good. I would have rated this one a little higher but there remained a slight off-putting note in the finish. I really couldnít tell what it was. Cardboardish? Stale?

Serving: Draft. It pours a light amber color with a white head. Fruity nose with a light maltiness and pine. Well balanced bitterness in the flavor. Malt, light caramel, pine, and apple notes. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orangish gold with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, pine, fruity esters and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, pine and the bitterness is a bit astringent on the finish. Overall this is a big hoppy ipa which some may like but itís all about balance in my books.

On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Slightly hazy, medium amber-copper with a creamy off-white head and lacing that starts out great but slides back quickly, leaving a few traces.
Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus and grass with the hops and malt in almost equal balance.
Taste of pineapple, caramel, citrus and pine.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
