Deep amber color. Very sharp piney nose with grapefruit and candided apples with a hint of caramel. The mouth is medium but lacks a bit of balance. Needs a bit more malt. Moderately aggressive finish.

Solid hoppy ale. Very resinous and quite bitter. A little sweetness goes well. Loads and loads of grapefruit and citrus. Good without being amazing

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Uber fruity IPA. Lots of juicy fruit type flavours along with the traditional citrus. Lacks a bit of oomph but a fun beer none the less.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It was difficult to know where to pigeonhole this beer as it was dark, but not as dark as a porter. It was strong, but not Imperial. It was hoppy, and too hoppy to be a Scotch Ale. I hope the classification suits. Aromas of the classic Pacific Northwest hops. spruce and citrus, along with long resinous bitterness. The beer was served too cold to truly so it justice, but I would estimate this beer would be felt in the mouth for a good half an hour after the liquid had disappeared.
