3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good IPA courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks! Aroma was average. Could pick up some floral hops and grass. Wasn’t very strong. Pour was a nice bubbly dark gold with a one finger white head. Taste was much better than the aroma. Fiercely bitter with notes of passion fruit and ginger. The hops really drown everything else out which is fine by me. Nice carbonation round this beer out. If you don’t like one dimensional hop bombs stay away. For the rest of us, enjoy!

330ml can @ Chez Sophie. Pours a misty amber, off white head. Aroma is caramel, pine. Taste brings crystal malt, pine, resin, marmalade. Would’ve liked more of the Nelson hops promised. Not Mother Earth’s finest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy orange with almost no head at all. Aroma is some tropical fruit hops with a bitter dankness. It’s not jumping out of the glass bit it’s there. Flavor is the same as the aroma. Light fruit with dank bitterness and a barely there caramel malt. Decent but ultimately kind of a generic IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Boise Co-op. Pour from can starts off rather average, aroma kicks it up a notch with some nice flowery hop notes. Taste elevates the whole with very pungent, flavorful, floral, piney hops, carried on a slick, viscous body. Hoppy and tasty, overall feel is wonderful.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden amber color with a cream colored head. Floral hop, pine, caramel, fruit and biscuit aroma and flavors. Medium body and somewhat lively carbonation. Pine, caramel and biscuit finish. Not bad, just a little boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
20 day old can purchased from The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this has notes of pine and herbs and grapefruit. Light tannic notes, too. Transparent copper-golden body with a medium, whitish head. Fair lacing. Starts with an herbal hop flavor before this becomes mildly sweet with a chewy caramel body in the middle. Finishes with herbs, earth, and onion bitterness. Rather bitter, but not overly so. Balance is good, but I am not a fan of the New Zealand hop flavors.
