3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL bottle. Gold, just a film of head, and lots of sediment. Which is unexpected in an IPA. The aroma is far more impressive, with a nice blend of citrus and resin. The flavour is more restrained, with the hop flavours not separating themselves until near the end. Followed by bitterness, which is perhaps a 4/10 for the style. Not much to look at, but a passable IPA. There are much better ones out there, however.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/11/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange zest, pine, homey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. No quite as boldly hoppy as I expected, but definitely a nicely enjoyable offering otherwise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, orange, slight yeast, hints of slight grassy, floral notes. Taste is a mix of grass, orange, grapefruit juice, touch of grain, finishing bitter, dry. Best brew they had.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle. Golden with one finger head. I don’t know where this one went wrong. I usually like the hop varieties listed on the bottle, but the flavors here are just dull. A bit boozy for the ABV. This is solidly below average in every way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10th rating for this brew, the make-it-or-break-it bottle. Nose of thin and lightly citric caramel, dough, earth, faint spice. Pours is overall golden, here leaning to orange, there to yellow, with a sudsy white head. Taste is strongly bitter but it’s rubbery and a little flat, though not too astringent; moderately dry with dough and caramel, light citrus and no fruit, but some smooth wood and light spice. Full, heavy body realized as a gummy brewpub offering.
