3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color. Big fluffy beige head. Earthy toasted malt aroma. Interesting bitter hop character. Noticeable juniper berry flavor. Notes of spruce, pink peppercorns and celery seed. Complex, yet subtle. Different, but good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a nice amber, creamy white head with lively bubbles. Aroma is fantastic, heavy hop, citrus, earthy pine, an almost candy-like sweet aroma, taste is a balanced bitter sweet, light-medium body. Finishes sharply and carbonated heavily, decent winter IPA just a little simpler then I anticipated.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of April 2014. It pours orange-copper with a lingering off-white foamy head. Busy carbonation. The aroma is delightful with roasted malts and juniper berries of course with a solid floral hop note kicking in too. The body is medium. The taste tends to bring out the IPA bitterness more than the aroma might suggest as it lingers at the end. I didn’t love it but I kind of liked it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a thick frothy head. Aroma floral with piney and light citrus notes. Taste is bright and citrusy with pine and peppery bitterness. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of the 2013 Winter Favorites mixpack. Great label, the usual Sam longneck. Clear, orangey beer. Buttery, AIPA aroma -- most of them smell sprucey anyway. Mineral, woody, dry, a little doughy, implied blueberries, evergreen. Medium heavy bittering. Woody, bitter finish. Interesting. Walmart.

Bottle; copper type color with a frothy head. Aroma of NW hops, fruit, caramel, and earthiness. Fairly crisp flavor, some fruit and earthiness. Pretty easy to drink, but a bit lacking overall.

Nice amber color with light head. Did not find any hint of juniper but the taste was crisp. Not a heavy IPA but light and rather enjoyable flavor.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It did not have much of an Aroma. It has a pleasant amber hue. I did not find a "berry" taste to this beer. It has mild grapefruit flavor which is not sweet or bitter just in the middle. It does have a very strong pinenut taste. It has a bitter finishes which lasts. This was one of my least favorites in the pack.
