3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from City Beer, San Fransisco. Clear orange pour, thin just off-white head. Aroma is fruity and quite spicy with a decent amount of hops. Slightly sharp and with some strange herbs, but refreshing and slightly different than most IPA’s. Flavor is bitter, clean and spicy hops with some resin and pine. Slightly messy though.

Sweet aroma and a overall bitter taste that I felt was too sharp for me to enjoy. If you like that? Have at

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear orange appearance, sweet orange juice and citrus hop aroma, pretty bitter with a grapefruit hoppy taste. Good by very harsh bitter which is accentuated by being well carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased from Bring On The Beer.
A- pours a clear bright 24k gold with a 2 finger head of foam, does well with the lacing.
S- strong piney nose mixed with that;s almost like a floor wax aroma. I can tell this is going to be bitter but in a good way or a bad way?
T- very piney bitter on first sip with no sign of any balancing malt. The more I sip, the more the pine off shoots to an aspirin bitterness. Again, no sign of any malt and that could have been a saving grace. Long lasting, on the nasty side, bitterness ensues. Oh my.
M- good body and carbonation so no complaints there.
O- Not at all an IPA that suits my fancy. Bitter for bitter’s sake? Me thinks so. No.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a moderately cloudy deep golden with definite amber highlights, thick and fluffy off-white head that stands for a long time like shaving cream. There’s a very straightforward hop aroma, grapefruit and lightly floral. Malt aroma is clean with a distinct addition of munich adding richness and toastiness to the nose. There’s a toasty note to the malt flavor and it comes across more robust than sweet. Hop bitterness is smooth and lingering, leaving a desirable aftertaste. Light fruity esters are evident, but not overpowering and definitely compliment the hops. This is a very good example of a Northwest American IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
STEVE! Thank you. Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours an unclear yellowish orange with a white head leaving some lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine, somewhat subtle, with some caramel. Taste is of sweet fruits, citrus and pine, with a solid caramel base. Medium bodied and sticky. Very nice balance with the sweetness from the hops AND malts, plus the citrus orange-y bitterness. Nice blend and good flavors. Definitely see the base of the Total Crystalization tap I had in Seattle.
