3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy, bright amber w/ creamy pale tan foam. Very aromatic, floral, hoppy nose of grapefruit & pine w/ a hint of sweetness in the background. Medium, mildly sticky feel. Slightly sweet, fruity flavour of caramel, biscuit & grapefruit gives way to fairly bitter, dry, hoppy finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark orange body with a lot of floating in the bottle. Nutty maple hop nose, with a similar flavor: peanuts, maple, caramel, burnt malts... too much peanut butter and metallic off flavors, not my kind of IPA at all. Finish is a little better with semi-sweet oranges and leafy hops.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poursa cloudy orange hue with a halo of a white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and a little dough. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Flavors......the water of this brewery is definitely off...... dirty laudry with a an orange tainted tinge. A weird finish that starts semi-sweet then quickly dries out the tongue. mmmmmmm....

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance dings for the lame label and the screw-off, but a good orange-brown PA coloring with a blotchy film head. The aroma says "ham-handed Cascades hops." Dry, a bit grassy, with good acid balance, and with hopping which is not nearly as clumsy as the aroma would suggest. Finishes a bit woody/nutty, with a medium-long hop aftertaste. Body goes watery, and I wanted a little more fizz.

Thanks to fly for sending 2 of these. Pours dark straw with medium white head. Aroma of floral hops, malt, slight peach and apricot. Tastes very hoppy, with a definite fruity element, finishing with more floral peppery hints. Nice balance and complexity. I can’t wait to open the other one.
