3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/2" foamy white head has very nice retention and lacing... the brew is a hazed orange.
I can easily smell this brew 2 feet away... pungent pithy citrus... minor pale malt with even a little bit of toasty presence... but this brew is all about the hops... unapologetic.
Huge bitterness... oily citrus zest... lite pale malts mid palate along with the noted toasty malt element... finishes long and hoppy... really pretty dry throughout.... Honestly, the only "real"
bitch I could even remotely come up with is the bitterness up front may be a touch high... but I would never complain.
I forgot how much I like this one... Any NW IPA lover would certainly put this into their rotation if they had access.

Can from Brewforia. Pours orange gold with an off-wite head. Aroma seems strong mix of citrus and resin. Med body. Flavor is really strong resin/citrus hop over a somewhat roasty caramel base. It finishes dry and bitter. Pretty hoppy ale!

Can courtesy of Lectvay, thanks man! Hazy copper pour with a white head. Aroma is big resinous hops. Flavor is bitter citrus peel hops but not quite as hoppy as the nose. Decent brew, not as complex as other IPAs but still a solid offering.

Can. Pours a hazy dark copper with noce lacing and white head. Great looking beer. Aroma is lacking. Taste is bitter, slight citrus. Nothing great, slight metallic taste.

A nice west coast style IPA, big on the grapefruit tones. Pours a nice amber color with white head. Citrus, grapefruit, and pine on the nose; all follow onto the palate. Finishes smooth.

33cl can in Brussels via trade with BuckeyeBoy.
Orangée sur un léger trouble, col blanc cassé.
Arôme est houblonné modéré, pointe fruitée sur qcq effluves citronnées.
Palais est axé sur un malté agréable, houblonné moyen sur une petite pointe citronnée. Palais est râpeux avec des pointes herbacées et un fruité rappelant le pamplemousse voire un léger côté mandarine ponctué par un léger herbacé-pin.

Pretty good. Definitely northwest style. Bitter but finished a little sweet yet dry. Good stuff. Smell and appearance are what you expect for the style. No problems with it. Just not my favorite style of IPA.

12 oz can shared by beerpig317. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have faded hops, some citrus, some candy sweetness, mild bitterness. Would this have popped more fresh?

Can to snifter (shared by beerpig317). Looks good; a hazy vibrant orange with thin off-white head that steadily dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of bitter hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Maybe it’s getting a little old; seems like it’s fading.
