3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a crystal clear dark golden/amber color with a large fluffy off white head that lasts. The aroma has some pine, resin, light citrus, and some malts. The flavor has toasted malts, light caramel, spicy hops, some resiny hops, grass and a hint of citrus. The finish has a general bitterness to it that lasts. Not bad, but not my favorite either.

Bottle. Very nice amber gold color with a thin thick head. Mild hop and malt nose, very balanced taste. Great drinking beer but won’t blow you away.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Camp box. Pours a light to medium copper. Minimal head and lacing. Biscuit and citrus nose. Taste combines the elements of the nose with some grassiness. Lots of carbonation. Astringent finish. Not bad, but certainly nothing spectacular.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh...a typical malt forward IPA. Aroma was decent. Very beery with a decent earthy hop smell. Pour was a cloudy light orange with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was OK. Roasted and lightly burnt malt is the main flavor. A slight heat from the alcohol is present. The hops come out mid-swallow and bitter the beer up. Makes the finish sticky and hot.Drinkable beer, sure, but not very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Neck tag shows "2013 IPA Beer Camp #93". Amber pour with a tall, frothy white head. Aroma is piney with strong floral hops, citrus fruit and soft tropical fruit blended with soft malt and a nice caramel backbone. Taste ups the citrus and tropical fruit notes, pine resins still reside here as does hop oils, caramel, toasted malt, floral notes and soft tea notes. Body is medium and chewy with a moderate, dense, creamy carbonation. Hop bitterness lingers and leaves a soft oily residue on the palate as well (as it should). More pine during the finish wit tropical fruit notes becoming more prominent, citrus fruit, hops resins strong caramel and sweet malt notes. Nice!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Dmac for picking up. Pours out a nice darker copper color with a big off white head. Aroma is of citrus/floral hops, bread crusts, and light heal notes. Taste is of floral/melon/citrusy hop bitterness, light malty bread, mild sweetness. Not bad but noting makes it jump out.
