3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to my co-worker Subbu for hookin me up here. Clear sparkling orange, thin creamy white head. Nose was typical IPA with sweet grapefruit, spruce, toffee, caramel, and slight hints of earthiness. A very nice rich bitterness takes hold off the bat, but is quickly followed up by the light sweet caramel malt for balance. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish. A good session IPA...

Cloudy orange with loitering head. Smallish on the hop-meter but well balanced fruit and bitter. Great session beer. The pinkish label is a demerit.

Nice aroma - fruit and citrus rinds. Taste follows the same profile - very first seconds of the sip have a sweet fruityness, quickly followed by grapefruit (with the peel, too) and ending with an oily pine resin. All of this hop on top of a soft sull malt body. Excellent - thanks Fly!

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.

Poured an amber color with a small head. Heavy piney hop aroma with a nice malty addition. Light to medium mouthfeel with a malty beginning and a piney/citrus hoppy finish. Very smooth.. Nice IPA

Saint Arnold best beer. Dark yellow to golden look with much hops. Nice lacing, well worth buying again.
