3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear caramel orange color and white foam head. Light buttery smell. The taste is bitter, tart, sweet, a little boozy and hints of butter as well. The aftertaste is tart and dry. A little overdone, but nice nevertheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with nice white head. Aroma of bitter fruits, pines, resinous, malt, a bit caramel. Taste is pines, toasty malt body, bitter warming finish. Rogue-like IPA, a bit too sweet, with a nice malt body. Soothing, just again: a little bit too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle bb10/2015, merci calisky! Indicated 82IBU. Creamy treesap greenyellow, same in aroma: big on the milky fresh resins rather than expected "best of C-hop" Flaconers, juicy grasses and pasture, dandelion buttermilk. Pleasant pollen-chewy mouthfeel to make the treesap variations palpable: yoghurt mousse, hay, mango peel, vague hints of unripe pineapple, quince and something like peach peel and bitter orange essence, without any of its juiciness. Very well composed, but in the hardline league of Northwest pinebombs.

Hazy gold. Medium frothy head with good retention. Grapefruit and hay aroma. Heavy bitterness decently wrapped with a bit of sweet in the finish. Medium body. The right carbonation. Very well structured.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is like a sour grapefruit. Burnt hazy orange body nice fluffy white head that laces the glass nicely. Bold bitterness at first. The malt balances it out after awhile. Faint glimpse of fruit sweetness. Finish is a bit sour and flat. Another Rogue beer that fails to impress me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Matt's after TAP. Clear light brown-maple syrup. Creamy fizzy white head, long streaky big legs. Smells of resinous hop, sweet butterscotch maple syrup malt, Tastes deeply bitter, resin, lightly fizzy dry finish. Palate is crisp, bitter, dry airy finish. Nice rich aroma with plenty of crisp malt but taste is one-note resin dry bitterness.

Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Quite clear copper amber pour. Dense soapy head. Aroma is orange peel astringent hops. Taste is similar - very bitter hops with not a lot else. But good. Bitterness lasts. Really sharp tasting and resinous. Nice straightforward IPA.

Quite sweet, biscuity aroma, malty. Rich palate, good carbonation. Taste is quite malty for an IPA also. Reminds me of a "Fullers 1845" with some extra bitterness thrown in. A "greedy" beer that I’d be happy to spend the evening with.

12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, orange with a small, off-white head that laces. Sweet, fruity, hoppy, malty aroma with citrus and caramel. Sweet fruity, malty, hoppy flavour with notes of grapefruit, peach, orange, caramel, pine and grass, ending on a dry, bitter note. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.
