3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, the bottle is highly carbonated, had been in fridge 2 days 0 movement and the beer foamed immediately upon opening. The pour is yellowish Orange very cloudy with sediment at the bottom with a thick off-white head. The aroma is yeast sharp Hops and citrus. The aroma smells like the Imperial has been aged. The taste is a really hoppy with notes of raisins, a little bit of citrus and almost a little strawberry lightly in the background. The mouthfeel is thick and strong carbonation but rather smooth. The finish is citrus and dried fruit reminiscent of prunes.

Too bitter hoppy (not malty enough) for an imperial ipa. A solid west coast regular ipa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper.

22oz bottle - pours a cloudy orangey gold with a medium fluffy off white head. Good layered aroma of pine resin, juicy citrus peel, a touch of sweet caramel and bitter grass. Very satisfying IPA flavor starts with citrus, pine, bitter vegetal and some sweet malt. Smooth bitter aftertaste.

on tap at nwipa during a new mex tap takeover. great swampy arom, ike fresh hops and not quite pine or resin but related, some toffee. and this carries to the flavor--green, expansive, enough malt to keep balance. expected oily palate but real clean, hoppy swampy finish.
