2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy medium orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and dank hops. Taste is heavily bitter. Like licking a pine tree...very one sided. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Very soft carbonation and a very long bitter finish. Overall, ok. Its just very bitter and not at all complex.

Midweek, humpday blues and all I had this. It’s really quite nice, despite the IBU number being 92 it’s not bitter and there is a big overhead of sweetness. Added to the ’full’ or ’fluffy’ mouthfeel this is a beer that had a start, middle and end. The end is in a dryness. A fair amount of ’flavours’ also, like grapefruit, lemon maybe and a tad of grass, it’s all a bit of a dance. Could you go two? probably not, but this would be fantastic as a part of course drinking, entree, main or finish. In summary - made me smile :-)

I would definitely buy this beer again. Solid IPA with a stiff grassy aroma. Good thick mouthfeel leaves the palette satisfied.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 9/18/13
Aroma: The nose is full of orange juice, grapefruit, hops, and some caramel/toffee
Appearance: A total and complete gusher: pours a hazy orange color with a frothy white head
Flavor: This one tastes hoppy and a little sweet, it is juicy and citrusy as well
Palate: Lighter body, with a clean/crispness, a long, dry finish, and way too much carbonation
Unfortunately this was such an absurd gusher that I lost a good 25% of the beer. What a waste! Anyway, this one is pretty good, but that carbonation does hurt the drinkability. As a fruity/juicy IPA though, I enjoyed it.

Lovely. Amber pour with a dense white head. Body is incredibly rich and creamy. Starts out sweetish with grapefruit and hay, nice malt backbone. Ends up very dry and moderately bitter.

This copper ipa has great hop characteristics without compromising the sweet malty flavors. Goes down real smooth unlike the ultra dry hopped ipa's out there.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Light fruity hops, lightly sweet toffee malts, and some flowery hops in a lingering medium bitter finish. Jesus, this is like some run-of-the-mill amber ale. Is the bottle out of date? No clue, because it’s not dated. I’d say pass on this one unless you’re positive it’s very fresh.

Had it out of a bottle. Pours a hazy copper hue with a creamy head and an uneven lace. Aroma is a mixture of pine and hops and the taste is of malt with a hop kicker.
