Not enough of a hop punch, more along the lines of a hopped amber. Pine, earthiness, bitter toffee. Just okay.

Aroma of lemon and citrus, taste is a very smooth lemony citrus all the way through on the palate. Very easy drinking.

Amber orange color, decent head. Tons of carbonation. Sweats outside the glass. Aroma is is resinous and woody. Hint of plastic/phenol but very mild, not a dealbreaker. Has a prickly spiciness in the nose. Solid. Flavor is very darkly woody, but also has a piney sweetness. Some oily spruce. The malts are caramel sweetness. Pretty enjoyable. Feels slick and oily on the ol’ lip-licker. This is a solid beer. A little one-note, but very enjoyable and possibly a good IPA to get a non-IPA drinker to get started?

Bottle:   This one is a bit more on the pine resin side.   A bit more bitter than No 1 and No 2.   Not as sweet, more resiny.   Nice vibrant burnt orange color, good head and lacing like the rest.   I can see where this will compliment the others in that it brings in more of the resiny bitterness.   Wished it were sweeter, but as a component of Lat 48, I approve.

Darker gold pour. Aroma is pine, citrus and orange. Taste is pine, lemon, spice and citrus. Stronger bitterness than 1 & 2. Lingering bitterness at end. A bit fizzy and carbonated. Overall good.

Dark golden IPA with a nice head. Seems a bit heavier than some other IPAs but the more you have, the lighter it seems. Seems pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice amber color with a massive amber tinged head. The head has fantastic retention and last a very long time, with it eventually fading leaving a wonderful level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of this one is rather hop light overall consisting of some more subtle grapefruit citrus and light pine smells. Along with these smells comes a decent showing of a tropical fruit and bready nature with the tropical fruits being a mix of tangerine, mango and pineapple. Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with a decent showing of a fruity tropical fruit nature of tangerine and pineapple. At the start there is a light grapefruit hop flavor that gains a bit of strength as the taste moves on to the end. A little bit of apricot and caramel come to the tongue with the tropical fruits fading a little bit as the taste advances. Some lighter pine and earthy hops develop at the very end, leaving a rather smooth and malty sweet flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body is above average with the carbonation level a little above average. The slightly thicker body does a decent job for the malty flavors of the brew and does help accentuate the lighter hop flavors, which overall was needed as the hops are fairly light overall. Overall – A maltier brew that is a little light in hop flavors for an IPA. It does however have a decent hop taste with a blend of citrus, pine and earth there, all from the single hop, and with the nice malty body creates a fairly easy drinking more pale ale style brew.
