4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a large cream-colored ice cream float-looking head with excellent retention; after it recedes a little bit, some decorative lace is left behind. Aroma is toasty, crackers, piney, grapefruit, catty. Taste starts out a little sweet before a nice bitterness sets in and lingers. Body is thin for style, which is fine with me; creamy mouthfeel. Basic PacNW IPA, but very well done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank from growler at the RBSG 2004. Golden, hazy. Rather flat and underhopped. Some minor citrus fruits but unremarkable.

On Tap at brewpub: Cloudy gold with a case of lacing all over the glass. As one would expect, the aromas and tastes were hops, juniper berries with a nice, initial bitter-taste. The feel is creamy and pleasant. Perhaps, the best Idaho micro IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. See through golden orange pour with great retention. Aroma is fairly weak, mainly hinting at whichever malt is being used with a tiny blast of citrusy hops. Flavor brings it a bit more proper with a weaker malt up front and through the body, but where this gets interesting is the hop profile really kicks in RIGHT at the finish and through the end. Lots of bittered business going on. Fairly resiny. A decent example, but was hoping for a bit more per all your ratings...

I really enjoyed this (on tap at Papa Joe’s), lots of hop flavor without the overpowering tartness. Hazy amber with a small creamy head, mild pine bitterness, abrupt finish. Enjoyable and highly drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can- Pours hazy orange with over a two finger creamy white head that leaves ice cream float like appearance. Aroma is hops man, spicy hops, pine and citrus dominate the aroma. The taste is bitter up front, resinous piney hops follow and the finish is bitter again. Body is fairly light which doesn’t bother me, carbonation is good. Overall good IPA, very sessionable if it weren’t for the 6.3%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a great sessionable IPA. All the bases are covered here. Great balance, with lots of ctirus acidity, hoppy bitterness that lends alot of great fruit flavors, with a realy clean malt body that I could stand to have been a little more powerful, but still this is a really well done take on the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler via scrizz. Opened with a spirited hiss...which is a good start. Pours clear orange caramel color with a thin tight head that settles to a ring around my glass. Pretty nice nose of very tropical fruity. Peppery, pine, grassy hops notes on the end. The flavor is very ’compact’ on the ipa spectrum, by that I mean no flavors are really over powering or stand-outish. Nice malt and bittering up front with some citrus fruit over shadowing and then dusty bittering on the end. Decent stuff that I would like to try fresh. Thanks Clint.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
Smell is citrus and pine.
Taste has a strong bitterness with mild malt. Good balance.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A solid IPA with a good dose of bitterness that’s balanced nicely.

On tap, pours a cloudy yellow gold with a thin head that laces well. Nice hop-citrus dominate nose, some dry grass and pine. Attack is grassy, pine, some bright sugar notes. Clean finish. Yumm.
