3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 5/18/11 from a 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours hazy orange-amber with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a bubbly spotty layer of lace. The nose is hoppy with spruce, pine resin, hints of cinnamon and caramel, and a solid amount of caramel malt. The flavor is spruce and resin hops bitter along with a very heavy mid-palate featuring weighty vanilla, caramel, and cinnamon, and finishing with very nice bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long caramel malt and spruce bitter hops finish.

golden yellow, clear w/ steady bubbles
very hoppy nose. primarily nettle hops w/ some pink grapefruit citrus.
thin/med body and very fizzy
this is a pretty mellow and balanced hoppy IPA. it is primarily stemy/nettly hops with citrus grapefruit hop as a close contender.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A tasty brew that pours a dingy copper color with a lasting head. Smells fresh with some mild biscuiting. Medium nectar with ample effers. Tight in flavor with a light malty backbone. Hops seem acidic rather than citrusy. Finishes dry. Not bad but not great.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose smells of pepper, lemon, grass, and a little bit of alcohol. Color is orange and murky, with a slight greenish tinge. The promise doesn’t follow through to the palate. Very thin and little lingering bitterness. A very average IPA.

Hazy amber pour with a foamy head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and resinous and citrus hops. Flavor is a bit sweet with some hops coming through on the finish. A pretty typical IPA. Not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Short stringy lacing. Citrusy hops aroma with some sweet malty notes. Moderately bitter hops character with notes of grapefruit and caramel malt flavors. The finish is hoppy and lingers awhile. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp light copper coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, metal, light hops, pine and a touch of apricot sweetness. Medium-bodied; Strong piney and grapefruit hops come out with a good malt backbone, a dose of sugar, some light fruits and a good light finish with some minimal hops. Aftertaste shows a touch of bitterness, some light pine and a good malt finish. Not overly bitter, but perhaps a bit underhopped for the California IPA I expected. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo in Walnut Creek, California given to me by Phil (Haddon90) on 17-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 24-November-2010.
