3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent IPA. Not quite a NW IPA, but pretty darn close. I’d call it a 50/50 mixture of British and NW IPA. Good beer.

Buddy of mine brought me back a growler of this. Thanks Matt!
A - Pours a clear dark copper with a 1 finger head that sinks pretty quick.
S - Herbal and pine hops, almost smells like sweet basil, caramel malt and a touch of citrus.
T - Follows the nose, herbal and pine hops with a hint of floral, toasted caramel malt, some lemon zest, finishes with average bitterness. Some light tea tannins on the finish.
M - Heavy side of medium bodied with adequate carbonation.
A good IPA that leans towards the green herbal piney side. Good all around!

Good IPA. Nice balance of aroma and bitterness, and not to strong to stick with just one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark golden beer with a strong aroma and taste of floral hops balanced with a caramel resin, but in no way sweet. Has a moderately high alcohol content, as well as an abrupt palate, which I rather enjoy. This is my favorite IPA available in Montana.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Spotty lacing from an eggshell head, murky orange amber. Decently hoppy nose with citrus and slight pine notes, and mostly clean. No real sweetness in the flavor with nice grassy, citrus, and slight pine hoppiness. Medium body but the carbonation is a bit high.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Chico. Pours a nice clear golden/orange color with decent sized head and head retention. Smell is lighly caramelly with good piney and citrusy aroma. Tastes much the same, light caramel malt to balance out the citrusy hop flavor. This is a nice IPA, like this quite a lot.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark copper with thin white head. Aroma is OK, very sweet with some piney hops. Taste is very sweet with very little bitterness and lacks the flavor that is promoted. Needs more hops, less fruit since it is an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle-sampled at Canyon lodge in Yellowstone NP September 2012-pours clear bright orange with a very small whispy white head. nose is somewhat piney, lite medicinal character and some faint fruits(not in a good way-green apples, grapes or something wierd). flavors are pretty mild for the style-some notes of pine and citrus with some off putting medicnal character. not very much character here-not enough hop punch to make this very bitter-has a very metallic finish. Of the beers available here, this seemed to be the best on the menu. I will try something else now....
