3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This appeared at my local Safeway. I’ve had the Fat Tire lots of times, so I tried it. First response: this is a M.F. Very hoppy. I like it better than Fat Tire. My current favorites besides this are Torpedo and Lagunitas IPA, which also really hoppy. I must have a hops imbalance in my bloodstream and this is making up for it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle promised citrus and pine and I am getting 1/2 of the deal out of this bottle. Aroma of hops and pine. Drinking out of the bottle. Taste of hops (cascade hops are very prominent here, and even though Fat Tire is just as mass produced as brands like Keiths it blows their piss attempt at using cascade hops out of the water), also strong notes of pine and some floral notes. I am getting almost no citrus whatsoever, but the flavors that are here are well balanced and tasty and pretty much make up for it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks cards04 for this one. Light apple amber colour with foamy white head and nice lacing. Slight citrus hop aroma. Taste is sweet malty with a touch of bitter hop aftertaste. Lightish palate. A starter IPA, but a decent one.

Fresh hop aromas, grass, citrus, pine resin, light peachy stone fruit, some bread and caramel. Clear orange with a mostly fading white head. Dry, bitter hops with a simple, bolstering malt structure. Light-medium bodied, crisp, clean, quite refreshing, some sticky, lingering piney hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is citrus hops with hints of clove. Taste is a distinct bitterness that is perfectly balanced and finishes exceptionally smoothly. Sweet maltiness manages to present itself through the bitterness which is impressive. Appearance is a clear gold body with a lace head that retains well.
