2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at The Weed Alehouse / Mt Shasta Brewing, pours a crystal clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out syrupy caramel and floral hops - hints at a cloyer. Flavour is very over-malted, bringing out syrupy sweet caramel malt and restrained floral hops. Way too much malt here, giving out a cloyingly sweet mouthfeel. Not a good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thin head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice lemon and roasted malt mixture.
The taste is a moderate pine bitterness, sweet candy, then a moderate bitter lemon finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable IPA with some bold flavors.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Easy-breezy IPA, which borders on an extra pale ale. Nice full-flavored maltiness, and an equally nice flavor infusion of pine and floral notes from the hops. Just good tasting all the way around. Ends bitter, which is the only indication really that you're drinking an IPA as opposed to an EPA. Good. B

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a brownish orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light citrus. Taste is an earthy and light citrus bitterness with a caramel malty backbone. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation leaving a nice sensation on the palate. A decent IPA that is highly recommended.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Naked City, Seattle
Beautiful amber color. Very nice aroma, fruity, apricot jam and Citra hops. Lean body, with good mix of flavors: malt, caramel, jam, mild resins. The bitterness is not too high; the final is drier.
Fresh and very pleasant.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh earthy hops along with some roasted caramel on the aroma. Standard copper with a medium sized foam top. Decent, sweet caramel malts shade a light. Overall, very thin and flavorless and somewhat watered down. Not a memorable IPA in the slightest. D rating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with a modest head, ok retention and nice lace. Citrus and grassy hops aromas that feature pineapple and grapefruit. Hops bitterness accompanied by with bread/toast malt sweetness. Light to medium body, lots of carbonation, a smooth on the tongue, and a crisp finish. A good example of the difference between an East Coast IPA and a West Coast IPA.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a very thin, oily off-white head. Aroma of grass, hay, a little malt and not much hops at all. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops with a hint of resin and a little sweetness with almost no body or malt showing. Aftertaste is pretty much all light hops, unsupported by malt or anything else. Overall, a one-dimensional IPA that doesn’t have any body or malt - a few hops and mainly a herbal and grassy flavour on a thin body with no complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased on 03-February-2012 from Total Wine in Tustin, California for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 22-March-2012.
