3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit too flowery for my taste/nose. Indeed, aroma was overpoweringly floral at the beginning. Definitive hop bite was there, as was the bitter aftertaste. Not a bad IPA, though certainly not a great one. One interesting thing I noticed as the beer warmed (I was soloing a bomber) and I swilled the final gulp, I noticed an acrid, yet familiar scent whafting from the bottom of my imperial pint glass. I swear I whiffed the subtle, yet all-too-familiar, and (dare I say) even slightly tantilizing scent of dried.... naw, couldn’t be!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 22 oz. bottle at Grape & Gourmet’s Holiday Open House. Yellowish-orange pour. Aroma of mostly floral hops with a bit of must. Bitter hop flavor. Drinkable enough. My criticism of this beer would be the same thing that I say about Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and any of their IPAs that are not extremely fresh. The hop flavor is just not as bright and as clean as I had hoped for. Again, it’s good enough but it could be better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a very good IPA. Aromas of citrusy hops and lemony tea. Flavors of hops and tea. Mouth coating and resiny finish. Cream head with nice lacing on the glass. A little astringent bitterness on the back end. Yum!

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark golden color. Aroma is of hops, malts, and some type of musty scent (almost like yellow snow). Taste is hops, bitter, and malts. Has a bite in the end.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a crystal clear coppery medium amber. Thick and sudsy off-white head with some loose stringy lace here and there. Nice dark piney nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb that’s almost, but not quite, prickly. Very much a solid PNW IPA so far. Toasty, biscuity mid-palate, with the pine notes rolling in and taking over pretty quickly, washing into a long, crisp resiny bitter finish. Refreshing and forceful. Not bad at all. Taste is a little closed-off, and this recipe feels like a million other IPAs, hence the B+-ish score. Well-made, though, for sure.
