3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark amber colour with lots of foamy white head and lacing, three fingers of head. Hoppy malty aroma. Taste is a nicely balanced malty with some hoppy bitterness. Wow, my ratings are articulate and precise, rather than mundane and vague. Nevertheless, this was enjoyable, and my ratings are trustworthy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coppery orange, lots of bubbles, medium small light tan head. Aroma herbal hops with some pine and bit of malt. Medium body, lightly carbonated. Bitter pine and vegetal hops predominate but the bitterness overall is fairly restrained and there is a good amount of malt as well and a little sweetness. Solid if unmemorable IPA.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a translucent copper with a sticky white head of foam. Aroma is predominantly pine and citrus with some resinous dryness coming through. Taste is bitter up front with a slightly fruity sweetness eeking in and quickly moving out to make way for a dry, bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, medium amber with a 1 finger, soapy, off white head htat has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma of minty herbal, planty, citrus, and spicy hops. Caramel, biscuity and little licorice up front in the flavor, then some nice, cleanly spicy hops, citrus peel and evergreen bush. Light to medium body, neutral to creamy body, light, but sharp carbonation and dry, lightly astringent finish. Pretty good, unusual hop profile.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: The body has a very slight haze to it’s amber colored body with a thin off-white head appears for a bit before it settles into a thin coating with some lacing left behind.
Aroma: The aroma has a lot of hops with a grassy and citrus aroma, malts are light with slight toasted aromas coming through.
Taste: Malts are a bit forward here providing a toasted malt and caramel mid-taste, the hops come off as perfume like with grapefruit towards the end.
Palate: Medium body, oily texture, with some lively carbonation towards the end of the sip.
Overall: This is past it’s prime, but it was a gift so I can’t complain. I’m not a huge fan of this either way and I don’t see much to come through fresh to make me love this.
