3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Central Market. Poured cloudy amber with quickly dissipating head & no lacing. Smells of white grapes, lychee, honey and very yeasty. No strong hops smell. Taste was roasty-toasty, biscuity, alcohol forward and not as bright as other IPAs. Coats mouth with flavor (thick for an IPA). Dry finish, noticeable but pleasant boozey marmalade toast aftertaste.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy copper color with ok soapy head. That thined out pretty fast. Aroma is apricot and a touch of mango. Taste follows the Aroma well with a medium to thin mouth feel. Nothin special but not bad just a bit different and mild. Not much hop characters or malt kinda like drinking a strange fruit juice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Couleur dorée avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme et le goût sont d’houblon. Pas très complexe, une bière solide, mais non-remarquable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a honey color with plenty of yeast globs. Broken sheet of light cream foam. Smells like earthy hops, a touch of grapefruit and resin - standard NW style, but sans artistry. Tastes bitter with biscuit and warm malts. Really simple flavor with little left to ponder. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off-dry finish. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz for 4.99. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is malt and piney hops. Taste is similar but subdued; malts coming in at first but then a slight hoppy bitterness at the end. Tastes a little watery actually. Not much flavor in this one. I wasn’t expecting a hop bomb, but I was hoping for more flavor. Just an ok IPA. Body and texture are slightly thinner than I like in an IPA. A mixed bag. Not the worst I have had, but there are far better.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Juice and pine cone nose
Taste is quite good. It’s sticky resin though that is very persistent. Turn off after a few sips
