3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 This is all Sierra Nevada. Pours a beautiful amber orange color with a minimal head and decent lacing. Taste is hops and malt. Pretty well balanced IPA despite reviews that the malt is overpowering. Appropriate bitterness in there. Citrus. Grass. Pine malt and winter warmth. Better than the wet hop seasonal from founders. Good

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear light copper with 2 finger light yellow head. Head is fairly resilient and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Lots of hops on the nose and the palate. There’s some nice caramel notes underneath, but not being a hop head, it’s a bit over the top hop wise for me (and very one note hop).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vino Wines. Clear amber body with a thick off-white head. Steady carbonation. Lacing coats the full glass. Aroma of hop resin, pine and blood orange. Flavour of honey, cedar and freshly rubbed American hops. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. A hoppy, easy drinking IPA.

Pours copper with a medium, short lived head. Aroma of pine. Taste of sticky pine with a bitter body. OK but not their best

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is dark clear amber with a thick of white head. Nose is citrus and a bit spicy. A lot more taste than expected after the nose. Fresh intense citrus and floral hop flavors. Very fruity. The malty sweetness kicks in in the middle and gets overwhelmed by a long medium to high pine bitterness with a touch of roasted malt. Excellent IPA with lots of fresh hop flavors.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from Wholefoods. 2014 release BB Oct 2015. Hazy orange amber, sparkling, big foamy head with craters, some thin lacing. Aroma is rubbery, lightly floral, leaves. Body is medium, foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste is dry caramel and burnt toffee, slightly metallic, assertive bitterness and astringent hop character. Overall, it leaves a ’soapy’ impression. Decent enough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange with good white head. Pungent pine and citrus hop aroma with a rich malty sweetness. What can I say, the description is accurate. Solid taste of fresh hops and rich toasted malt. Well balanced. Hops leave a pleasant coating on tongue. Lingering toasted malt flavor. Super good

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper color with tan head. Aroma of musty bitter oranges. Taste; bitter orange peel and malty mouth feel (not much malt flavor though). It grows on you as it warms up, if its too cold it has a character reminiscent of dish soap, as it warms up it is more of a wintery, boozy IPA. The aroma never improves though... perhaps best consumed from the bottle directly. For the price (<$15 per 12-pack).

Sweet and soapy. Citrusy hops but a bit like dishwasher orange soap stuff.
