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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Muddy brownish-orange pour with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, tangerine, and grapefruit rind. Bitter citrusy hops are the star here with a sturdy malt backbone that lends caramel and brown sugar. There is no indication on the bottle, and I don’t believe this is old store stock, but this has a bit of a barley wine feel to it more than an IPA. I can’t guarantee that is what the brewer intended but the end result is quite good, just not what I anticipated from an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber pour. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Flavour has a nice sweet, caramel, almost sherry-like malt base with a nice balance of west coast hops. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Balanced, easy-drinking IPA with a good malt backbone (toast, caramel, light toffee). Its hop side (grass, plants, citrus), however, doesn’t blow me away. Every time I drink this I think, yeah, this is well made and good ... but I yearn for bolder hop flavors and aromas.
