3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled on 06/20/12
Tasted on 8/14/12 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours clear orange with a thick and fluffy white head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is dried citrus peel hops with some resin and a bit of caramel/bread malt. The flavor is the same, very dry and bitter, herbal citrus hops, with a light bread and caramel malt backbone. The body is fairly light with average carbonation and a long bitter herbal and citrus hops 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.

12oz bottle pours a hazy gold with an off white head. More malt than anything. I might have gotten this to late.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cedars in Penn Quarter in Washington, DC.
Hazy amber with an off-white head and very good lacing.
Aroma of malt, light fruit, caramel, floral hops and light citrus.
Taste of caramel, intense floral hops, light fruit and mild citrus.
Medium body and medium/low carbonization.
I found this to be an odd IPA. It was very bitter, but without either the citrus/pine intensity nor a tropical fruit hoppiness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a big fan of this IPA. The bready malts and the metallic fruits were confusingly mingled. Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.
