3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Copper body topped by two fingers of very light beige head that lasts for a bit and leaves some thick lacing. Nose is sweet citrus, light pine with some floral notes later on. Taste is mildly sweet and moderately bitter. Flavor is light with some grapefruit, dry malt and a good amount of bitterness. Some spiciness shows up late. Average carbonation and medium light body. Solid IPA with that stays dry.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Falling Rock Tap House, Denver. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is big yeast with some hoppy notes. The flavour is medium bitter with a big liqourice dry hop yeast palate. Iím not sure what hops they used but the finish was a not overly pleasant bitter that didnít work for me.

Pineapple nose. Soft serve ice cream line flavor...is that the biscuit malt? Sweet, annoyingly so. Maybe this was a bad bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a medium well retained, white head, with Belgian lacing, over a light gold (SRM 4) slightly hazy body.....nose is cereal, light biscuit from toasted malts, citrus, light pine from the hops.....taste very, very light sweet malts with hints of toffee/caramel from the malts, moderate pine citrus tones from the hops, leading to a dry, moderate bitter finish......mouth feel light of medium, minimally astringent, carbonation medium, with a clean mild acid finish. This is a nicely balanced, clean beer. Unfortunately it is more of an APA than an IPA. The hop bitterness is low for a west coast brewery, and the complexity in both aroma and flavor is low. Finally the malt backbone needs depth. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
A solid IPA. Nothing exceptional here, but it is a good, robust flavored IPA. The aroma is a little less than I expected, but hey! Finish is pretty typical but not overly bitter. Good but not very memorable...
