3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden pour. The aroma is of light pine and some fruit. Kind of similar to the Got Hops. A touch of apricot and some spice. The spice comes out a bit more as it warms. Assertive bitterness.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Draft. I had about six.....teen high lifes before this so my pallette is thoroughly destroyed but I think it?s a pretty good IPA. Definitely some citrus hops going on here. Tasty, but what wouldn?t be after so many high life?s. Update: revisited this on a clean palette. Better then the first time encounter.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a mostly clear golden orange color with a small amount of head. Aroma is a nice mix of malt and hops. Getting oranges, grapefruit, flowers, pine, caramel malt, and bread. Taste is not as good as the aroma though. It is extremely dry and it hits right away. Still taste all the aromas nicely mixed but the dryness interupts it. Moderate bitter hits in the finish. The finish has a soapy taste, not good. Overall just ok. Amazing aroma, everything else was disappointing.

10oz pour @ Baileys Taproom. Pours dark urine-y. White head and good lacing. Aroma and flavor are hop-tastic, through and through. Bitter finish. The hops linger. Straightforward but good!

A gold pour and thin white head. Piney, earthy, citrusy, with a little grapefruit flavor, very tasty. A nice hoppy IPA.

Draft. Classic NW IPA floral and resiny nose. Hint of malt sweetness. Superior lacing. Bitter flavor that builds through the finish. Hop heavy and not too sweet.
