3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a clear, medium-dark, orange amber color with a thick, lasting head of off-white froth. Dense, sticky, sheety patches of lacing coat the glass quite well. The nose is based in fresh cereal grain malt, very crisp, with notes of lightly toasted toffee sweetness countering a potent grapefruit, orange, and pine hop profile. Likewise, flavors are very well balanced, with the bright and bitter citrus rind and pine resins working nicely with the fresh, clean grain and lightly sweet toffee. The hops really shine on the finish, fading from sharp and bitter into soft and fruity. The palate is substantial, yet highly drinkable, with moderate to lively carbonation and a drying, lightly sticky end note. Good, solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Fiery orange, heavy sediment makes it rather cloudy, large frothy off-white head, clumpy lacing.   Soft nop presense on the nose.   Accompanied by even softer citrus peel, pine, and oddly enough, spruce.
Rather tame on the tongue, bitterness is soft, rather soft.   I would have thought this to be a bit more aggressive.   However, what bite is there lingers through to the finish.   Rather clean, but overall somewhat
light.   This seems somewhere between a Pale and an IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it warms, bitterness subsides.   Regardless, decent beer, but not so much "Total Domination".

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange amber with a moderate white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is a little biscuity malt, lemon, and grapefruit. The flavor is not far removed, but with a more toasty feel to the malt and a strong bitter bite at the finish. Reminded me of lemon rinds. A nice, straightforward west cost IPA.

piny hop aroma. Pours slightly cloudy golden, mid range head. Piny hops, sweetness. Some alcohol, bitter dry finish. Body is mid with some oilyness. Not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very well balaced IPA. Strong maltcy flavor and thick feel help to balance out this strongly hopped and carbonated IPA. Would buy again, especially for the price! (3.79 for a 22oz)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington. Pour is a hazed orange golden with nice settling building up a one inch off white head. Head leaves behind some streaky lacing. A bunch of fine carbonation bubbles are visible. Aroma of bright resin and mild pine hops along with a toasty maltiness. There is also a caraway seed aspect. Fresh and balanced nose. Taste is the nose, straw resin and pine hops up front, toasty bready malts in the middle with more of the resin bitterness to the finish. Palate is medium to thin, with a nice dry resinous finish. Clean and easy to drink.

Sweet pine and some warm alcohol on the nose (served warmer). reas golden with a good pillow like crisp white head. very sweet malts up front. Almost caramello chocolate sort of sickly sweet. Lovely pine and herbal dominated hop flavours. Well balanced and interesting when fresh I’m sure but probably showing it’s age but held up reasonably well, nonetheless

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz Bottle Hazy orange golden color with just a small skin. Light fruity citrus aroma. Peaches actually, I think. Lots of IBUs in the flavor, but just enough bitter resinous hop flavor comes through to make it interesting. Fades to more piney and astringent and trails off as a classic sharp bite. Not overdone though and in your face enough to be noticed.
Modest to slightly heavy and malty. A bit more atenuation would I think show off the hops a bit better.
