3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BW. Hazy orange pour with a short, persistent white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is pleasantly hoppy with fruit and floral notes, but not unbalanced. Floral hops, some pine and citrus, caramel, light oranges and grapefruit and a bit of tea. Finish is of medium lenght, with some glucose sweetness and the hops being more bitter here. Well balanced, if simple and a shade lightweight. May not appeal to the hop-forward crowd, but very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Hazy light amber color with medium sized creamy head. The aroma is fresh, hoppy, fruity, delicate, with orange flowers nuances, apricots, mango. The mouthfeel is lean and smooth; it has a mild toffee and malt flavor, not enthusiastic, with good hopping, providing a fair bitterness, soft resins, bitter oranges and some more hidden fruitiness; the final is quite bold, long, and gets drier.
Fresh, not impressive but still pleasant; something more with the malt can be done, for example some more crispiness.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a loose creamy tannish head. Spotty lace. Big buttery nose with some caramel and sweet fruity notes. Slicky medium body with flabby carb. Huge butter explosion on the mid palate with a slippery finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of varying sized bubbles with light carbonation. Reduces to a sloppy bit of foam and lace. Rather weak aroma with some light malts and thats about it. Surprisingly bereft of hops for an IPA. Flavor is interesting. Rather sweet and malty and again with very little hops presence. Pretty good actually just not in style at all. Some roasted grains and a bit of fruity yeast. Almost like they brewed this "IPA" with a belgain yeast. Hazy dark copper in color. A decent brew just not what you would expect for an IPA.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle pours amber in color with a thin head. Hop aroma not strong as well as the flavor. This is an average IPA, nothing memorable. Definitely had better IPA’s than this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drinkable IPA if not overly impressive. The aroma is malty with a bit of bitter hops. The flavor was malty with caramel and a slight hop bite at the back. Clean finish.
