3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un verre d’une grosse bouteille. Un liquide orangé avec un pauvre anneau de mousse. Des arômes biem maltés flirtent avec des effluves de salade d’agrumes et de fleurs. Des saveurs d’oranges, de caramel et de citron entourées par une petite résine collante. Un corps de moyenne densité avec des bulles normales pour le style et une texture bien crémeuse. Une finale bien amer, jamais agressive, qui annihile toute montée maltée. Correct, sans plus. 4.99$ pour 650 ml.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance holds a hazy orange amber color supporting a fair head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice malt backbone with citrus and floral hop aroma. Taste is balanced between the malt and hops leaving a lingering hop in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A nice take on a PNW IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear slightly dark golden under a thin foamy white head. Big floral and grapefruit-rind nose with an underlying cracker malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit floral, a bit resiny, a bit grapefruit-zesty-sweet, mild bitterness on a clean semisweet finish. Nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy coppery/orange colored body with a slim less than a quarter finger white head that barely coats the top of the body, moderate slightly foamy lacing tries to cling to the glass.
The smell had a slightly piney/resin, but malty and all combined through a sort of earthiness.
The taste was balanced between the malts and the hops, slight bittersweet aftertaste and a dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, and slightly sessionable. Carbonation seems to be adequate for the style and for me, nothing out of the ordinary.
Overall, this was a good AIPA that I would have again, nothing spectacular, but nothing bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a mostly clear copper body with a small foamy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nicely citrusy with some pine resin and moderate caramel malt. The flavor is bitter and aggressive, but not a whole lot of hop flavor. Slightly sweet caramel malt base. A little too sweet for me despite the big bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some clingy resiny hops on the back end that lingers on for ever. Decent, but I could go for a little more hop flavor and a little less bitterness.
