3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a somewhat hazy but more of a clear amber body with a one and a half finger white foamy head that rises a bit and falls leaving some sticky lacing in the wake.
The smell had a bitter citrus hops up front but a nice bready/maltiness angles in to also give a bit of a floral/piney-ness as well.
The taste had a sweet yet bitter combination of hops to bready maltiness, also gets a bit orangey, aftertaste is exactly the same, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and good for me.
Overall, I’d say this is a pretty good AIPA, just a tad maltier than most AIPA’s but still worthy of another purchase.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- In a tall Pilsner glass. Good aroma of malt and hops. Slightly cloudy dark amber, 3" off-white head that stays a long time, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt and toast that grows through the palate, revealing good medium citrus hops on the swallow. Malt reappears in time to join the bitters through a long finish. Not a huge taste, but, oh my, what a superb balance. Great with cheese and crackers. High recommendations.

Best IPA that I’ve had in a long time. A nice malty backbone leaves a sweet aftertaste and gives it a great finish. Big, hoppy, pine aromas dominate the nose.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Robert brought this one back from a trip to Washington. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bitter, tart and piney with notes of orange and other vague fruity hops. The flavor was bitter and tangy orange, pine and pepper. Long bitter and tangy orange, pine and pepper finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

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.

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.
