2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Some nice flavors coming through, but overall, a totally out of balance beer: too much malt and too little hops coming through.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark golden and hazy in the glass. The nose is floral and grainy. The beer starts rough, unround. The mainpart is sharp, floral hop aroma together with a sharp maltiness and bitterness. Not really fitting. The aftertaste is sharp, not really well balanced and sharp-floral-bitter.
Not one of my favourite IPAs. --> 7/10/6/7

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Dull golden, a little darker with an orange hue, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Very soft spruce or pine like foresty aroma.   Not much else.   Watery hop flavor profile, barely even a Pale Ale by most PNW standards.   Very little citrus peel and pith emerges as it warms, but too little too late.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft pith and peel linger, and I mean soft.   Snoozer...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
Clear amber colour with a tiny white head.
Fruits, grapefruit and pine in the aroma. Hoppy I mean. Mild and a bit sweet bitterness. Smooth. The flavour is hoppy... dark and... thereís chlorine... like swimming pool water. Bitterness is more than light. Hmm... drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grapefruit aroma and taste with pine with an extremely desert dry finish. Very similar to sumpin sumpin but without the body or palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is topped by a thin pale head. The beer is a clear light coper color. The aroma smells of menthol, pine, light citrus, some toasted almost nutty malt character and a caramelized whole grain cracker like character.
The flavor has a strong woody pine character to it. It is baccked by a supporting grapefruit note, a touch of crystal malt character, but really has quite firm bitterness. The beer is fairly light bodied, it has a touch of viscosity, but not enough to detract.
This an old school IPA, focused bitterness, lots of pine and citrus like grapefruit. It does seem quite fresh, which is nice as this is the type of IPA that seems to fall off fast. Not bad, perhaps a bit better than I was expecting even.

OK, I confess the numbers are meaningless here. Itís one of the beers I drank during my family reunion in Santa Fe, but I donít really recall it and my notes arenít quite helpful. Yet I wanted to include it in my list. Iíll remember it next time!
