4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the tap at the SE Brewpub. Color is that of a red. Aroma is your standard IPA aroma. First flavor is peach and finishes with a bitter peach skin type flavor. Additional sips yield a bit more pine and grass. Very interesting beer. Definitely lots going on here!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a sampler glass. Tropical, citrus orange, and toast with marmalade aromas are noted. The pour is a clear, effervescent, oily gold color topped by a soft, medium ring of dense white head with a filmy, floating island. Lots of lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and medium / medium light bitter blend. The smooth, light bodied beer is accompanied by a light, fuzzy carbonation. Tropical fruits start the mouthfeel and bitter rinds finish it. Bread crust comes forth in the aftertaste with a slightly burnt and slightly waxy characeter, as well as hints of citrus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, bottled about two and a half months ago--hopefully still good. Aroma is perfumy, floral, light grapefruit. Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head with good retention; laces a little. Taste is thankfully better than the aroma let on; it’s average IPA territory, though, bittersweet with a light tang. I think I need a fresher bottle.

"bigger floral aroma and bigger citrus flavor than expected. this was a pleasant surprise, a nice fragrant and flavorful ipa that was very obviously fresh. well balanced but leaning towards the hops. good enough to want more from this brewer."

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle acquired in a trade with a friend in the Northwest. Consumed at home and poured into a goblet. It pours a little hazy copper with a nice head. The aroma is a mild citrus with hints of resin and tropical fruit. The taste is quite balanced with the main properties of the hops evidently coming from late in the boil and dry-hopping. The finish is clean. Great beer. I wish we could get this out here on the East Coast.

Bottle from Haggen’s Grocery, Burlington, marked 8-13-14 (less than one month old?)
Cloudy copper to light amber color with generous compact head. Nice aroma, mild, hoppy, a bit animal. Lean malt and caramel flavor, with very moderate residual sweetness; strong hopping, very resiny, citrusy, zesty; a bit caramellish in the final.
Fresh and excellent, almost a Double IPA.
