3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Parkway. Clear, gold pour with a brief rim of a white head leaving minimal lace. Nose is tropical fruit, pine, citrus and maybe some malt in there. Medium body and moderate, very fine carbonation. Pine resin, orange flesh and zest, toast and a bit of ethanol. Finish is also a shade alcoholic, but otherwise the standard bitter NW IPA. Oakshire are doing good things, keep an eye on them.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 03.23.15.
A: Orange rind, pine, grapefruit, and orange.
A: 1 1/2 finger head with an easy pour. The head stays fluffy. See through orange body.
T: Pine, grapefruit rind, and orange dominate. Oak (maybe nuttiness) and honey are subtle.
P: Crisp and finishes clean.
O: The first time that I tried this, the hops had died. The pine and grapefruit were much stronger in a fresh bottle from Safeway. This is a very nice IPA in the West Coast style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from p1meatloaf. Thanks bro! Pours a hazy bright golden with a mangoish tint. Two fingers of sudsy sandy tan head. The nose leans more towards the herbal and earthy hop notes with some pine resin and a touch of oxidation. A light malt sweetness shows as well. Herbal and pine resin heavy in the flavor with bitter citrus rind and oxidized hops. Not sure on the age here. Medium light bodied with a firm bitterness and some citrus.

12 oz via can whilst disc golfing. Moderately bitter and mild grainy IPA. Crisp, dry and refreshing. Smooth and pretty easy to drink. Overall, a fairly average IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Huge aroma of oak and some orange. Flavors are all hop-bomb, a bit woody too, with tangerine, vanilla, peanut and a desert-dry finish. Tremendous.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 5-01-2013 (Bottle - Label marked 7.1%ABV) This beer’s appearance is a medium sized white head with a short retention, yellow gold transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine, and grassy hops. The flavor is bitter, citrus, pine hops, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is bubbly and moderate carbonation. This is a medium bodied IPA. A quaffable IPA and a beer for the hopheads. A bit too hoppy for my liking and it is worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can poured at home. Had this in a 22 not too long ago, but I’m going through a big can phase, and since I had this, I waited to do the rating until now. Pours golden with a mild aroma. Nice, well balanced IPA. Nice malty flavor as well as a nice hop character to it. Nothing unique about it. Just another good IPA. I’ll pick this up again.

Canned from Trader Joes. Hazy dark golden pour. Pungent hop nose up front. A little tropical fruit and spice. A whiff of engine grease as well. Unusual. Pungent hops dominate. Very subtle underlying tropical fruit, along with a spicy grapefruit peel finish.
