2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. American hops dominate the nose, citrus and some classic PNW tones though a little queasy. Hazy orange-amber pour with a foamy beige head. Taste only lightly sweet with some rindy, astringent bitterness (medium), an there’s some scratchy yeast way at the bottom that might indicate the primitive stages of an infection, but regardless, the malt is thin and the crystal unrounded. Like the extra warmth from the increased abv but the gritty mouthfeel detracts.

Pours clear amber with a huge off white head...lively. ..nice lacing and retention. aroma has earthy bitterness. Flavor follows suit...earthy hops and some caramel. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bitter/earthy and dry.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not much to say about this beer in the positive. So glad I at least got a free glass for buying the case.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg: Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops, with caramel malt backbone. Taste is much as expected. Hoppiness is somewhere around the middle. This is not a very ambitious beer, but it is also perfectly drinkable and quite pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light orange-brown. Complicated aroma of malt, hops, citrus, flowers and wheat. But there is something else...barley/cereal possibly. It’s sweet as well. Good toasted malt flavor with some bitterness and spice. Hops dominate.

Pours a light brown/orange color. Smell is of hops, some citrus. Taste is very hop forward, bitter. Overall not bad, but a little unbalanced for my liking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer poured slightly amber with a huge head. The aroma was citrus and floral hops. The flavor was slightly fruity with citrus hops and very bitter which gives an astringency on the palate. Overall a decent IPA but slightly overly bitter.
