3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Haggen’s Grocery, Burlington
Hazy amber color, bright, with generous head. Very nice aroma, fruity, sweet orange peel. Lean mouthfeel, on the dry side, but soft on the tongue; mild caramel flavor, that lets the hops appear quite freely.
Very clean, good old school IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is hops and malts. Pours golden with a rocky white head. Taste is citrus, spicy, malty. Finish is spice and faint banana. Good body and not too bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It just IS an IPA. Bitter but not too bitter. Hoppy but not too hoppy. Nothing offensive and nothing spectacular. A scent of grass and hips and green, and a standard IPA flavor. Good, for sure, and drinkable - there is nothing that can go wrong here. But nothing that would suprise you, either.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I cannot complain about this IPA. It is perfectly balanced. There are no uniquely discerning attributes or characteristics that may be memorable, other than the fact that this is just a damn good IPA. Prototypical for the style. Melds pine, resin, and to a lesser extent citrus notes in balance. Sufficiently hoppy, but doesn’t give away anything on the malt bill, either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a lasting white head. A lot of caramel and bread in the nose. Dull grapefruit and herbal hops. Fairly burger. Nutty, toasted bready flavor. Slightly oxidized. Dull citrus. Not that great.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Awesome piney hop flavor and aroma. Lasting white head. The malt character is understated, bready flavor that supports the hops and not much else. Overall a great example of what can be done with hops.
