3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange-amber, white head, decent retention and lace. Aroma is light fruity esters, grainy sweetness, pine, resin, c-hop citrus. Flavor starts sharp, resiny, and piney, leading to a round doughy sweetness, followed by toasted grain and a long, grapefruit rind/resiny bitterness. Oily texture, lighter bodied for style. A really nice classic expression of a west coast IPA with moderate-high bitterness and c-hop character taking center stage. However, it could be a little more unique.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a good IPA. I love the reddish amber appearance and light but fresh hop aromas. Some malt on the taste with mild bitter hops on the palate. Solid, but not outstanding.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy deep copper amber color with an off white head. Aroma is moderately bitter, with hints of fleshy fruit, floral, piney hops and a touch of caramel malt. Flavor is somewhat malty sweet, but overpowered by some hoppy bitterness. Light to medium in body with a lingering bitterness. Solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 picked up a few nights ago at Brewer’s Haven in Boise... Enjoyed tonight... Pours a clear orange with a decent enough white head... spotty lacing.
Interesting hop profile... good citrus/resinous pine with some earthy notes.... a bit too much residual maltiness for my liking, but still well done.
Flavor mirrors the aroma with a nice balance between the bitterness and the pale maltiness... the citrus really blooms as this warms.... a very well balanced brew.

The aroma has a heavy dose of caramel and tangerine combined with other citrus flavors. It is an amber color with a orange hue to it. The head is a fluffy off white. There is a taste of grapefruit, tangerine, and a malty finish.
