2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass. Transparent amber color with a half finger of head. Good lacing.
Smell was faint, picked up some grapefruit.
No doubt that it tastes like an IPA. Bitter hops all over the taste profile. Sharp bitterness, but really nice. The malt shows itself late, but the hops still rule.
Feels soft and smooth. Moderate carbonation and medium body.
Good and straight forward IPA. Try if you find it.

Can. Pours a cloudy copper color with a thick, laced head. Strong, dark hoppy aroma with some malt and tart. Smooth taste. Tart and hops mixed in. Not overpowering. But a good balance. Not too shabby.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours with a medium dark beige head, the beer is a dark amber to bronze color
Aroma: grass, pine, caramel malt,
Taste: assertive bitterness, has a caramel malt backbone, alcohol, has some darker smoke subtle flavor too
Palate: lingering bitter aftertaste, average carbonation, medium mouthfeel
Overall: could use a bit better aftertaste, it lingers in an unpleasant way, not my favorite ipa

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can at The Wood in Maplewood. Great-looking can, probably making every other NM brewer jealous by getting to it first. Actually, I’ve been to this brewery and seen it around enough that I’m surprised I’ve never had it before. It pours a clear, bright gold witha white head and lots of carbonation bubbles in the glass. The fresh, zesty hop nose really pops; I could smell it when I first cracked the can. But it seems to mellow in a glass. The flavor also starts light and fresh and hoppy but gets heavier and more purely bitter as it gets lower. Medium-plus carbonation. Good, fresh IPA that is better in its first half than the second. Actually, it might just be better straight from the can.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can, at ELP Radisson. Light piney aroma. Cloudy orangish dark amber color, with white head and pretty good lacing. Had a lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Med body, high carbonation gives fuzzy mouthfeel. Overall, a pretty good "old school" IPA.

Pours deep golden with huge light beige head. Aroma is of fruits, citrus, resin, pine. Taste is of fruits, citrus, bitterness, pine, some alcohol. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Quite nice. I felt the alcohol did show a bit, but I did not mind. Nice fresh hops.
