3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and caramel. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tap. I thought this was pretty good. Typical citrus and pine but a pretty solid candy sweetness for balance. Smooth and drinkable.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is light toasted malts and some earthy hops. Taste is bold malty sweetness kind of grainy with some citrus and earthy hop bitterness win the finish which is quite strong.

as a beer, this isn’t offensive, but as a west coast orgonian ipa, this beer is just plain ridiculous. almost hopless, save for the bitter aftertaste. how this is getting a B on beeradvocate is beyond me. must be 13 homers that have rated it. 40 ibus for an IPA? why bother? english pale ales are higher!

Citrusy nose. Flavor is same plus flashes of dank, pine, resin, touch of butter, and a light crackery malt base.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is lightly grassy, but not too much aroma to it. Taste is slightly bitter and light, and without much substance. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Clear orange color with a dense white foam head. Good lacing.
N: Spruce, leaves, grapefruit, orange syrup, crystallized sugar, biscuit, and some mariijuana hints. Hint of spice.
T: Pleasingly bitter with a backdrop of sweetness and fruit.
M: Creamy carbonation, resinous, medium body. Alcohol is restrained.
O: Big leafy IPA. The classic hops are identifiable, and they lend a delicious fruity bend to this one. Seems like there’s a commonality with Sculpin, but I wouldn’t swear to it.
