500ml bottle in Seattle. Clean, clear yellow-orange. Light, tea like citrus aroma. Super tasty, sweet citrus hops, clean and a little minty. Gathering bitter finish. Juicy and fresh. Loved this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark orange body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Peach, some grapefruit, too much toffee for my liking, some toast. Medium bodied, light sweetness, moderate bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malt sweetness and hop aroma with a hint of bitterness are battling in my nose. This clear yellow brew has a nice white head and I can see a lot of bubbles rising. The taste is lightish bodied and kinda crisp with sweetness quickly taken over by the hop taste and immediately following the bitter oils from those green flowers take over leaving a green leafy aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dank, pine, floral, citrus, pale biscuity malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium to full body, moderate carbonation, lingering and building bitter finish. (4/5)
That’s a nice IPA - West Coast dank (yes, I mean pot - it smells like pot) and slightly funky, with a well-balanced pale malt supporting on the back end. Dunno what else there is to to say here. Fun. Get it. (16/20)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in Portland, about two weeks old. Delicious freshness. Woodsy hops on the nose with clean malts backing. Some citrus, some caramel but everything is integrated and towards a clear vision. This is a well-crafted IPA, no doubt. Not earth-shaking but more importantly not overly ambitious or unfocused. I want to drink a lot of these.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Colour...hazy golden-orange with a thick white head. Nose...definitely on the piney side, as opposed to the grapefruity side, with conifer pitch and crushed pine needles. Palate...right away, the whole of the palate is awash in massively piney hops and tremendous opulence! The mouth is full and rich with flavours of star fruit, quince and kumquat and there is a deftly balanced finish to round it all out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have four ways of quickly refering to the flavor of an American IPA; citrus, pine, smoke, and malt. I like the first three. I don't understand how anyone could ever refer to a beer with a dominant malt flavor as an IPA. But we do. I refer to the flavor of this hop profile as smokey. It's good. Mildly bitter. Crisp and clear palate.
