A solid XMas IPA probably just a bit past it’s prime for this tasting. Very mild aroma. Clean crisp and bitter with only soft hop flavors and slightly nutty malt notes in the mix. This reminds me a little of Port’s High Tide but with amped up malt flavors from something like Marris Otter or Victory.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at Black Bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, grass, hints of orange peel, lemon into a bit of caramel, biscuity notes, slight spice in there as well. Taste was a mix of grass, pine, spice and floral notes into some orange, grapefruit and lemon peel, caramel, toffee come through, finishing bitter, dry.

Ok tap @ Noble Fir. Been wanting to try this one for a while. Pours slightly cloudy dark reddish amber with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and a decent amount of earthy floral hops. Taste is big caramel malt, pretty sweet, followed by a hugely bitter hoppy finish. Some nice earthy hop notes but honestly dominated by the bitterness. Works well with the big sweet malt though. A bit odd, but I liked it.

Awesome IPA! Has that unfiltered look, which rocks. Hits in the palate, but doesn’t over do it.Finishes clean with a chalky end.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy slightly orange-brown with a thin, but hearty, foamy, off-white head. Nose is citrusy with some floral notes. Hint of tangerine. Taste is mildly bitter on a backbone of bold malt. Medium body, mild carbonation. Nice brew.

A nice west coast ipa with nice simco flavors. Hoppy enjoyable grassy with light sweetness. Mouthfeel could improve slightly. Nice though.

On tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a murky copper appearance with a creamy light brown head. Quite spicy, piney, resiny, mild caramel aroma. A bit sweet and goopy, toasted caramel malty, piney, dank, resiny flavor. Not bad.
