3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours deep golden with a thin white head and lively carbonation bubbles, aroma is kind of grainy with some mild hops. The flavor is fruity grapefruit with a lingering bittlerness, this is more IPA than the Eel River Organic IPA I had before this, the hops are crisp and clean and very mellow bitter. I like this, this brewery never fails to impress.

A fun ale consisting of a golden caramel color and a nice light tan head. The flavor has a nice extra bitter/hoppy combination which I enjoy as a double IPA drinker.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head that fades. Aroma of is malty, a bit of a noble hop like earthy/spiciness, a little bit of fruit-leather-rollup. Toffee. Taste is bitter, a bit astringent, husky, hay. Really a lot of lingering bitterness. Lively bubbles. Dry.

22 oz bomber. Pours a cloudy golden orange. With a pillowy head that laces the glass. Quite enjoyed this one, malty start and a metallic hoppy finish. Quality seasonal from a brewery that is quickly becoming one my favorites.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a red color. Flavor is hoppy - but not overly so. Flavors of dark to light malts mix with light to heavy hoppiness. Make sense?

If I had to choose on word to describe this beer it would be skanky, you want to like it, all the right pieces are there but everything I just a little off and trashy. The hops taste oxidized, the malt character tastes burnt. I really want to like this beer but it just can’t.

Draught at some movie theater where my friend wanted to stop for an espresso. Hoppy and crisp. Not intense but in a good way. Good balance of flavor. Not a strong malt bill.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 7/23/2010. This American Pale Ale pours a medium copper color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is grassy and herbal with a nice caramel malt note. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, grainy and semi-sweet. The hops are floral, herbal and slightly citrusy. The citrusy hops are most noticeable at the finish. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Interesting beer, the malts are a little more grainy and a little less sweet than most APAs. The hops are a little more citrusy than normal. The dry hopping (Liberty hops, nice) really adds a whole lot of dryness to the finish. There is some additional sweetness as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
