3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours copperish orange with thick lacey head that lingers considerably. Aroma is bright citrusy hop flavors and biscuit malts. Taste is sharp hops with strong notes of pine, citrus, and grass. Hops taste fresh even though this is an older bottle. Solid malt body with sweet biscuity flavor. Finishes bitter. At 7.5%, clearly not a DIPA, but a very nice rich standard IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is clear dark amber with a yellowish white head. Nose is bready and doughy, piney hops and resin. Taste is doughy, some bread crust, pine and faint citrus with gentle bitterness. Body is rather full and creamy, moderate carbonation and a semi dry finish. Some malt sugars of caramel linger through a shorter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bottle. Pours a very hazy light copper color, some head which dissipates fairly quickly. There’s a distinct graininess in the aroma, a little sweet doughy-wheat like which is then followed up by the classic Cascade hop aroma. Some citrus, but mainly grapefruit and old orange peel. Flavor up-front is medium caramel with some biscuit flavors, malty munich notes come through, some are rich and caramel-like, others more savory. There’s also a bit of a pastry-like and also nutty note to the malt. Finishes clean, not completely dry, but enough for the bitterness to balance. As early as five years ago I would have probably given this beer a much higher score, however because of the onslaught of new hop-variety driven iipas, it does not fare as well. Still though, solid.
