A little piney on the nose. Definitely a solid balance between hop bitterness and hop sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 6/18/13, as Endeavour
Aroma: This one has a nice hoppy nose with grapefruit/citrus, and underlying caramel
Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head and some sticky lace
Flavor: The taste has a nice fruity sweetness, some malty sweetness, and a more bitter finish
Palate: This one is medium bodied, with a soft carbonation, and a sticky, dry finish
Overall, I thought this was a really enjoyable beer. It has a good hop flavor, and plenty of sweetness to balance it out. I would happily buy this one again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark golden hue with a small white head that disappears quickly. Aromas are big pine and resin hops with just a dash of citrus and some caramel. Flavors are bitter pine and resin, hints of citrus around the edges, soft caramel and a touch of flowers. Palate is a little flat I expected more carbonation from this beer and it just didn’t allow the beer to really hit all the right spots on my palate. Overall this is a solid above average DIPA. It’s not going to compete against the tops in this category but it will beat a lot of the other DIPAs out there.

Nose is caramel malt forward, hops, pine, bitter grapefruit.
Taste comprises mineral notes, hops, decent level of pine bite, sugars, light booze, bitter grapefruit, orange pith.

Decent enough but not top draw. The booze came through a little too much in the finish for 8.9%.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pleasantly surprised with this IPA, as I'm not a huge St. Arnold's fan. Great aroma with hops and fruit -- citrus mostly. It's strong. 8.9% abv. and quite hoppy, but delicious and a thick taste on the tongue unlike most IPAs I've had (feels creamy, but doesn't look it). Deep amber color. Nice light cream head.
Really delicious and a great value for <$5 for a 22oz bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark gold (SRM 7) body......nose is resin, pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel.....taste is medium toffee/caramel sweetness, balanced by pine, resin, citrus peel, finishing with moderate bitterness.......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation low, slightly acidic. This is a very typicial I/DIPA. It is slightly sweeter than many, but has all the clean refreshing qualities, combined with appropriate complexity in both the malt and hop backbones. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
