Bottle shared by Tmoney99 pour hazy orange gold with thin white head. Nose initially dank and earthy hop light vegetal but not in a bad way, some caramel malt. Taste up front again earthy and dank with moderate bitterness. Lingering bitter from mid palate through the finish. Some grainy malt late.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask with a hybrid strain of cascade and chinook grown on the mother earth farm sampled at ACAT 2015. Light copper with off-white head, big hop presence on the nose and palate, but nothing all that exciting really. Malt falls short, no real bitterness or balance.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, at home. Pours pale amber with slight haze; some particulate matter in bottle, most of it left behind with careful pour. Aroma is hop and orange zest, light fruit notes. Mild bready, malty beginning opens into powerful, resiny hop flavors. Not quite enough malt there to balance the hop flavor. Dry, lingering, bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Very hop forward brew. Not bad, but I prefer a more balanced IPA.

Bottle from Trio. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma is floral, grassy, but has nearly no citrus character. The taste has a mild bitterness, sweet orange and apricot, and a bit of extra sweetness on the finish.

it pours a golden orange. It has a standard piney, floral aroma that is not too powerful. The taste is mostly hoppy floral and pine elements with bits of citrus in it.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp, very hazy bronze coloured body with a decent two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh grassy and bready hops with a good yeast and malt nose, some alcohol and a touch of citrus and sugars at the finish. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and dry note up front with a good hop flavour but no malt backbone to speak of at all, just a PNW hop kick at first but nothing supporting it and no depth at all. Aftertaste shows a subdued grass note, hints of the hops but little else - no complexity and no depth here, which is too bad. Overall, a good smelling and nice tasting beer initially, but this fades fast and only a shell of a beer is left. Decent to try, but there are much better examples of the style to try than this one. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 27-July-2014 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 18-August-2014.
