3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 This was a good IPA not great. Did not have enough hop aroma or flavor for my taste. Not bad but not great either.

amber pour. Slight citrius and pine. Low grade hops. Nothing all that impressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can via trade with brokephibroke. Hazy copper body, medium puffy beige head. Nose of moderate intensity with citrus rind and toasty malts. Somewhat thin body but with a nice piny, hops bite and toasty malt base. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft dark golden amber hue. Nose clean pine and malt. Taste typical American pale. Not much aromatic hop, strong malt backbone, and long bitter finish.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of caramel malt. Much like a hoppy amber ale: sweet earthy biscuit, some caramel, crystal malt, light citrus, some bitterness in the finish. Not bad. Easygoing.

A - Brilliant amber with a hefty off-white head. Shows good retention and quite a bit of lacing.
S - Undercooked baked bread, clean pine, strawberries,
T - Fruity upfront, sweet malt follows suit. The hops come on slow but then pick up a good amount of bitterness. Lemons and pine are prominent. Doughy yeast and tea tannins comes out when warm.
M - Heavy side of medium body, chewy at times, ample carbonation.
Nice balance. The yeast and malt really shine but the hops take care of business. I would take this camping.
Serving type: can

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super piney. Medium-full body with a bit sweet of a finish. I consider this more a fall IPA with its fuller body. I'm drinking it in the spring/summer. Medium bitterness that doesn't linger too long on the palate, but does up in the back of the throat/nasal cavities. Overall, not bad. Would buy again in the fall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid brew but not exceptional. Pours amber with some fleeting head. Aroma is more citrus and grapefruit than pine. The hops are not showcased well here with an aroma that is somewhat disappointing; just wanted more here. Taste is solid: plenty of citrus notes, faint pine, and subtle malt character. Finish is dry and bitter enough.
