2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. So this is the first beer I have ever poured that was all head. In disbelief, I stood back slightly and looked at the glass for any signs of an orangish liquid at the bottom... not a millimeter to be found! Aromas are OK, but pedestrian. A bit of funk (was this one infected?) with some grainy malts and light hops. Flavor was similar and it just tasted like and IPA that rode around in the back of the truck for the summer. Malt with a little bit of hops and a slightly skunky old edge to it. I’ll try this again, but I’m a little saddened that this isn’t the new Holy Grail of IPA’s.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden orange pour, thin soapy white head and thin striped lacing ... aroma of grassy, light citrusy hops and light caramel malts .... taste is of grassy, light citrusy and light floral/piney hops, caramel malts .... backbone is malty and of dry bitter hops ..... finish is dry and bitter with a lingering bitter hoppy bite .... british/east coast ipa ... sessionable and ok, but 1.5 decades spent developing this is a bit disappointing

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours clear copper with a large off white head. The aroma has piney, resinous hops and light citrus. The taste is fairly dry, earthy, bitter and limitedly balanced. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Hazy light gold pour with a small head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is pretty malty for an IPA. Caramel and sugar cookies mostly with some citrus and floral hops. Taste is juicy sweet with not much bitterness to balance. Spicy and citrus hops are there to go with the caramel malt. Medium to full body and not much carbonation which hurts it I think. Not really my kinda IPA but certainly not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hoppy aroma. Earthy, thin, with a somewhat trashy finish. The hops are there, but it seems a bit watered down.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Heinens. Caramel colored with lasting head and lace. Spicy hop aroma with some pine. Some mild toasty malts and some fruity malts with a lasting bitter rindy hop finish. One of those American/English hybrids. Pretty good. Maybe ciould have been fresher, but I couldn’t see a date code.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a cloudy amber with thin beige head and some soapy lace. Nose dominated by malt, mostly caramel, with some grass and light citrus. Light body with a very bitter finish. Not for me - malty palate wrecker.

Poured on tap at a bar at Hidden Valley snow tubing. Ok IPA. Too bitter. Too thin.

12oz bottle thanks to thirdeye11.
Burnt orange color with lots of white head. Citrus hop aromas - pretty well balanced with enough malt to tame the bitterness. Not a bad IPA that I’d drink again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Hazed amber brown color. One and a half fingers of creamy off-white head with average retention and a good bit of lacing.
4.0 S: Pretty good aroma. Equal mixture of hops and malts. Malts offer a good bit of toffee and caramel to a lesser extent. Hops are citrusy and earthy with orange being more apparent. A bit of Chinook-like cat piss and yeastiness too. Pretty good.
3.5 T: Earthy and refreshing. Moderate-heavy bitterness, earthy hops with some citrus and pine, and caramel and toffee malts. Yeastiness is a bit heavy handed, but otherwise pretty good.
3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation that is just a tad bity. Could be a bit creamier and a bit less chewy yeast.
3.5 D: Not a bad beer, but I’d prefer it to be a bit cleaner. I like yeastiness to a degree, but this is a tad too much for this beer
