3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one was a little on the old side to be at peak and a gusher to boot, so I was ready for a drain pour, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it not much different from the fresher bottles out of the same 6-pack I’d drank some months before. Not a particular distinct nose, mild fruitiness and light malt, but nice medium body and moderate bitterness on the palate, citrus fruit and pine resin that lingers nicely. Nothing mind-blowing, but a solid, tasty IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2015 Piney nose, with some resin and citrus and a slight smokiness. A slight green apple fruitiness as it breathes and warms up. Satisfying body, not sweet or malty, but with a full, oily mouth feel. Pleasantly bitter, with no harshness. Lingering bitter finish. An excellent IPA. The bitterness does most of the talking, but it’s backed up a rich oily body.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a grapefruit aroma. Taste is light floral with a hibiscus aftertaste that quickly disappears. Clean and clear IPA that is simple and refreshing. The hop bitterness is slightly lacking but makes the beer very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very cloudy orange-golden color with a short, quickly dissipating off-white head. Piney, citrusy nose with toffee malt aromas becoming a little too overpowering for the style. Full body with a wet texture. A mildly harsh hop leads the roasted malt. Both merge midway to impart a distinct prune flavor.
