3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via trade, got it as an extra along with some TREATS. Pour a deep amber shade with very small head and not much lacing. Aromas are nice: grass, caramel, pine, and citrus fruit. Taste is most of the same with average mouthfeel. Good amount of Simcoe in this guy. Finishes bitter and a little bit dry. Glad I got to try this one.

Pretty nice IPA from MS. Malty and medium sweet with good bittering and heavy herbal grass hops with light citrus as well. A bit more malty then i expected but good.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit rind, pine, caramel, and hints of cranberries. Flavor is ruby red grapefruit, cranberries, caramel, and pine sap. On the palate the beer is medium-bodied with just the right amount carbonation. The beer finished dry on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from 5000. Thanks Andre! It pours a deep amber color with a lasting, creamy, tan head. The nose has slight plastic notes with a good dose of pine. The flavor has a medium maltiness with aggressive bitterness. A bit aspirin like on the back end. Light biscuit malt notes and an abundance of pine. Definitely west coast oriented. Medium to full body. Curiously drinkable and the aggressive hopping keeps you coming back for more. Pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Little to no head. As for the scent, it is a little tame. I smell slight carmel malts, hops, and pine but nothing overwhelming. As for the taste I noticed citrus bitters and malts primarily. I also taste some type of spice. Its a nice additive. Overall it is a good beverage. I’d buy this again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a firm patch of foamed head where as the liquid was a light tea brown hue. In the nose, there was a scent of pine and citrus styled hops that dominate the aroma. The flavor is piney too with a taste of sour yet sweet grapefruit and really dives right into what the west coast IPA’s are all about. Also has a nice balance with the caramel malts.
