3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber-brown and hazy. Nice lacing.
Aroma is citrus, crystal malt, taste is lightly hoppy, med bitterness that is quite clean. Less crystal than the aroma, though it comes out more in the finish. Good balance.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 330ml bottle.Very nice. If I blind tasted this I would have guessed it was an APA. Delicious fruity, resiny, piney hop flavour. Hop aroma just keeps on giving. Good bitterness, essence of tangerine or grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. Re-rate: I’ve had about a dozen of these now and I’m really starting to think of it as my All-Terrain-Vehicle of beers. It tastes good any time with anything, it’s a steadfast rock of a beer and I love it.

Nice full hopped beer that is not overtly bitter. Parrotdog seem to be making beers that are very drinkable, but I do question if they are "special" enough that people fall in love with them.

Draft. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of nelson hops, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of nelson hops, caramel, and malt, leading to a very bitter finish.

On tap at Cookie. Nice and fruity, with great balance. Caramel, cherries, grass in the aroma. Taste is sweet and bitter, very well balanced; long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

On tap at The Scratch. Great ipa with loads of pine needle aromas with some floral hop aromas also in the mix. Full in the mouth and flavour lingers on the palate.

Heres an IPA which is not overly complex, yet very enjoyable. Rigger from the brewery. Pour is deep amber gold, with a little head which gives good lacing. Aromas are resiney piney hops, floral and honey. Quite full bodied, a touch chewy even, not overwhelming hoppy in the middle, good malt backbone with a rising intensity of bitterness in the finish. Quite well balanced and very drinkable.
