3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hadn’t had this one in awhile and have always enjoyed it. Golden-amber color with a medium, dissipating head. Aroma has a nice grassy-woodsy hop aroma with some caramel and bready malts thrown in. Flavor is a nice grassy-citrus blend with some bready malt and just a hint of earthiness. Always a good one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz bottle received via trade with Duane. Pours sparkling amber with a small rocky white head, mostly lasting, fair lacing. Aroma is light malt (grain, meal), heavy hops (grass, spruce, citrus), light yeast (sweat) with notes of grape and apple. Medium bodied, oily texture, average carbonation and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness; fresh flower flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle spills out a nice pour with lasting tan head. Pretty full aroma with floral hops and sweet malts. The taste starts with a somewhat viscous mouth feel that greets my taste buds with a solid lightly roasted maltiness. Then the floral hops enter in an un-assuming manner. Beyond midway a slight medicinal flavors rises up to hinder the experience some.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a moderate, yellow-white head. Very, very mild aroma of malt with no citrus or pine detected at all, which I thought odd for an IPA. Some mild caramel and grapefruit notes come through in the flavor, but again very mild. Some bitterness at the finish. Unremarkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz - Aroma is mostly malts, caramel and earty hops that become stronger as the brew warms. Pours transparent copper with a small ring for head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the hops flexing thier muscles. Palate is sticky and tart at first, then turns creamy. A well balanced ipa.

Bottle. Pours a burnt golden in color with a fluffy white head. A ton of hops with a fresh citrusy aroma that shows evident in the flavor as well. Clean and crisp, proving an excellent example of the style.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar. Poured a dark redish gold with a thick white head. There was a lot of citrus and hops in the aroma which carried over into the taste, along with some bites of pine and lemon grass. Very good ale.
