3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample. Clear copper in colour with fairly strong carbonation. PIne lumber upfront in the nose, backed by sme white grapefruit, nutty malts and faint caramel. More pine wood in the mouth, but it takes on an additional sap quality as well. White grapefruit shows up a bit more here too. Solid chunky black pepper bitterness. I didnít get a whole lot of Amarillo notes out of this beer, but Cascade and Centennial are here in spades. A solid (somewhat safe) IPA overall. Good.

Bottle. 2nd time Iíve had this. Aroma nothing special. Flavor is really nice though. Has similar hop to that in north coast white hawk ipa. Really like it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 IPA glass. Pours a cloudy bronze with a thick foamy white head. Really tasty smelling, hints of hops and sticky pine. Good but not great tasting, the initial taste is a bit watered down and the flavor hits towards the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and pine notes. Flavor is also very hoppy with citrus, pine, earthy notes and some spices. Medium body with medium carbonation. A very bitter, tasty brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Mostly clear / slightly hazy amber pour. Nice fluffy white head that dissipates rather quickly. Pine resin nose with a touch of citrus. Taste is pine, citrus, and some earthy elements. Quite hoppy - and Iíd say a touch unbalanced.

this was a pretty good IPA, although iím not really sure if it is truly a micro or not. Has a nice hop aroma as well as taste and a good bitter finish.

Sample at Nashville beer fest. I think this is my first NE beer, Woo! Sweet orange flavor and a little pine bitter finish. Beautiful orange color and frothy white head. Pine and citrus aroma. Pretty tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark copper color with a large head that falls rather quickly. Initially a strong citrus hop aroma, but now way more dank than anything. Strong bitterness. Plenty of resin/pine/dank. Light caramel and biscuit notes, but not enough to distract from the hop centerpiece. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty tasty!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 twist off bottle, purchased somewhere in Lake Okoboji, Iowa, enjoyed on the boat. Pour is a darker copper, mostly clear with a one inch light tan head. Aroma is resin, caramel malt and a pleasant earthiness. Taste is nice bitter, resin, touch of dank hops along with a significant caramel malt backbone. Clean. The palate is medium bodied, dry resinous finish. Nice one.
