3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle via trade with diggity7 - Pours a clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is herbal, pine and floral hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt with a good dose of fruity and piney hops. Medium body. Kind of a one dimensional IPA, never the less, a nice easy drinking beer. Thanks Nathan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grapefruit hops, crisp and floral. Amber body, good clarity, with a tall white head. Pretty decent IPA overall, not much for the malts up front, focused on the citrusy grapefruit hops the whole way.

Pours amber with small white head. Traditional cascade-style piney, fruity, spruce hops. Only 40 IBUs makes it more of an APA to me though. Decent malt backbone for the style. Decent, but not great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly darker amber. Aroma is PNW hops with some caramel, fairly light nondescript aroma though. Medium bodied, moderate to low bitterness, low hop flavor. Flavors felt jumbled, not a very good IPA.

This is a carmel malt flavor NOT diacetyl.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Brewpub: Caramel bronze, nice head and lacing. Nose of diacetyl and bright citrusy hops, buttery. Lots of grassiness. The flavor is nutty, super diacetyly, decent body, unbalanced bitterness. Finishes candyish, nice finish. Diacetyl bomb.
