3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Lynnwood, 6% ABV; bottles 09/02/14, less than 3 months ago
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. The aroma is delicate and nice; it blends, malt, fudge, vanilla, and a flowery hint, chamomile. Smooth mouthfeel; lean caramel flavor with light residual sweetness; the flavor is not exceptional; it has a correct bitterness level, some timid hop resins, less fruits, overall the hops are not shining here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
rusty orange. dirty toast crumb nose, caramel malt is noticeable in
small amounts, hop character resembles dried pineapple and peaches.
Body is moderately astringent, the coarseness is crusty, chunky,
nutty, etc. This is not really that good in any respect, the only
thing I seem to like is the pungent, dried fruit finish, it’s properly
bitter only at the very end after the off-putting caramel malt

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft - Hoppy nose, ruddy orange with thick head. Very bitter with a medicinal quality that is just unrefined. Considering how good Hop Fury is from the same brewer a real disappointment.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Orange amber, generous off-white head, some early sticky lace. Aroma is orange peel and light pine. Sweet malt, nice orangey hop character, again light pine, nice bitter finish. I’m not sure why this is rated low for the style. I really thought it was a solid IPA.
