3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, dense, frothy and creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of soapy lacing. Aroma is citrusy pines and florals with somewhat spicy resins and a touch of caramel. Flavor is similar. Lots of citruses with a bit of a juicy sweetness, pines, florals, a bunch of resins with a light spiciness, and a touch of caramel towards the end. Finishes dry, resiny, and bitter with plenty of juicy citruses. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable IPA. Lots of juicy, resiny, piney, and floral citruses with just a touch of caramel. Good one.

Very citrusy cascade notes on the nose, very citrusy/spicy hop flavor without being overly bitter. Great mouthfeel & smooth semisweet finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Pours a very clear golden orange color with a nice frothy head that quickly fades. Big webbing on the glass. Spicy and citrus hop aroma with some malt as well. Taste is heavy on the citrus hops but not too much. Strong bitterness and very tingly spicy finish. Nice malt backbone as well. A really good IPA but a bit too citrusy for my liking. Love the spicy finish though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a light orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of a moderate amount of citrusy hops, and some caramel malt. Flavor was similar, bitter hops, flavor seems to have faded a bit and made way for more of the malt to come through unfortunately.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours an orange color with a lasting, frothy off white head. The aroma is very strong with intense florals, grapefruit, pine and hints of caramel. The flavor is again, very floral with a good balance of grapefruit, flowers, pine and hints of caramel malt. Very bitter, almost woody finish. Maybe a bit heavy on the caramel malt, but the potent cascade character is very nice. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is really bright and fruity. A bit of lean malt and some bright hoppiness. Dry-hopped grassiness and a lingering bitterness. A nice bright fruitiness and a soft peppery flavour. Lovely.
