3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a nice bright gold with a very thick and lingering white head. Taste is medium bodied, slightly bitter but mostly sweet. Nice touch of carbonation that finishes strong. I was very surprised at how sweet this was for a double IPA, great beer though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangey copper with a pillowing white head. Aroma of grassy, floral hops. A bit of sediment in this bottle, i wish i knew the age. Really sweet caramel malt, not overly bitter. I had high hopes for this, I thought Bent Nail was pretty good, but this isnít for me (or isnt very fresh)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a snifter.
4.0 A: Lightly hazed bright orange color. Two and a half fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is very good and some irregular lacing is left.
4.5 S: Awesome aroma on this. Superbly flowery with tons of pineapple and followed by orange and papaya. Lightly sugary. Quite clean overall with some crystal malt and a very light biscuitiness.
4.0 T: A lot of the aroma translates into flavor, which is something that doesnít happen in a lot of IPAs. Flowery with pineapple, orange, papaya, and a bit of pine. Mild bitterness. This isnít quite as clean as the nose though. A pesky breadiness (Iím not a fan of bready IPAs) enters the scene as well as hints of yeast. Still, itís good.
4.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy. Would be a bit better here if the breadiness chewiness was gone.
3.5 D: Tasty beer. After having a horrible hefe from Red Lodge, Iím glad they redeemed themselves with this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy honey gold, medium white head that retains well and generates lace at the top. Nice piney hop aroma with good intensity. Pine resin hop flavours frame the palate, sweet bready malts underneath, good bitterness and length. Medium bodied without a lot of complexity, but a good enough hop load to keep us happy.
