3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly dry IPA that wears its cascade roots on its sleeve. Really the only thing detectable in both the nose and flavor is the familiar citrus tang of cascade hops. Not that that is a bad thing just something that has become a bit cliche in recent years. I would still buy it again but would pass over it if more exciting options were available.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, malt syrup), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Very simple, crude, and overly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle packaged on 02/25/16 - nose is minty resin. This one is 6.2% ABV per the label. Sip adds a juicy hop aroma. Not very bitter. Decent but lacks taste.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Bottle, pours deep cloudy gold. Piney northwestern aroma, taste follows through with similar traits and then fades quickly. Decent, pretty light overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours light hazy and fairly bright red amber. Has a decent aroma with not much to it. Taste is fairly thin, much more sweet than bitter. Notes of citrus and predominately pear. Good and enjoyable, but not great. I prefer a little more full flavor. Might be a good IPA to introduce to a non IPA drinker.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is awful. Just dreadful. I bought it hoping it would be an IPA that could get me liking IPAs (donít worry, that mantle was taken up by another beer and it was successful), but this is garbage. Its bitterness is overwhelming, its aroma is forgettable, and if given the choice between drinking it and eating my own toenails, Iíd go get the clippers myself.
