3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An attractive appearance, but the flavor seemed to sit with leaden deadweight. One of the team felt it was almost sour without the crisp hoppiness that you should expect. An overall quality, but average, beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head which leaves some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malt with some earthy and citrus hops. Taste is bitter earthy hops with a bit of citrus and a caramel malty sweet backbone to balance things out. Medium body and light carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty decent IPA.

Dark amber body, off white head. Loads of dark hops, but not bad ones. Caramel malt, some citrus. Flavour has woody notes, very bitter. Really resiny hop flavour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Coppery amber colored in appearance with a half-inch of foamy white head. Lots of sweet and citrusy caramel malt and herbal hops notes in the aroma that slightly resemble a Barleywine. The taste follows the same formula as the aroma with the addition of some grapefruit and earthy hops bitterness. The body is adequately carbonated with a clean, bitter finish. Nice interplay between the caramel malt and aggressive hops characteristics. Definitely holds its own against other quality Pacific Northwest style IPAs.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour was a little surprising and on the brown side. Unfortunately I think this one was infected. Getting a lot of buttery aromas and flavors and it is totally overpowering the hop. Only letting a little malt body come through with a bit of caramel sweetness. Hops are totally gone here. Either old or infected so someone please send me another bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid IPA. Pretty big pine and citrus going on. Pretty good balance tending more towards the hops. Drinkable and easy to get ’round these parts.
