3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle into pint glass. Copper (new penny) colored with nice head containing big bubbles. Aroma is full; citrus, pine, mint, follwed by malty sweetness. Very nice hope flavor, definitely American. Flavor contained everything listed above, no surprises. Finishes bitter, but not harsh. Very balanced beer, not particularly exciting, but I would drink this again.

this is a good beer if its all you can find. more of an entry level northwest ipa. its got good color and its very clear but the nose could be stronger and the taste while good isnt what it could be.

dry finish, thin. Little notable head, light gold color. I don’t particular care for IPAs, especially when they’re anything but very cold...

Bottle. The Columbus hops give it a excellent bitterness that hits the back sides of my tongue leaving me want more. Great to sip and could easily down a 6 myself. Simple hops dance on my palate with a slight grapfruit flavor that isnt overwhelming at all. Hazy yellow color with no head. And at 6.7% ABV, makes for a nice IPA.

Lacks the hop aroma I was expecting. The bitter finish is a bit too long.

Bleh.... If you’re going to deal with some of the sharp bite of an IPA, it had better have some good flavors jumping out at you. This one doesn’t. Only the bad, no good.

Ick. Don’t like hoppy bears, and this one was very hoppy. Horrible aftertaste. I won’t be buying again.

Nice gasoline aftertaste. Not too hoppy but better than a lager. Complex sweetness that makes you want to drink the whole six pack in one setting. That’s what I just did. Wish I had more!

It has a good hoppy flavor and a nice body. Th color is a hazy golden. It's just a good IPA.

Dark straw colored. Smells skunky... tastes skunky. No wonder it was on sale. Bad sample. I will re-rate this when I find a good bottle.
