3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bomber into a snifter glass darkest amber orange with a 2 inch white head.
Aroma is grassy straw.
Flavor was at first rather mild for an exclaimed bold IPA. As it warmed the strength increased with a lemony grass bang. Finish is bitter with more than expected sweetness. Carbonated very well with a medium body to the tongue. Won’t go out of my way to purchase again but if offered to consume at a bottle share---yes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Surdyks, brought by and shared with Eric. Very exciting! Pours a clear, golden orange with an off-white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has pine, citrus and biscuity malts. Taste is of sweet fruit, some pine and citrus with some resin and sweet malts. Medium-bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes more sweet than bitter, but fairly balanced. Solid and tasty. 13.8

Amber gold pour with a white head. Well carbonated. Aroma of pine with slight citrus and sweet malts. Taste is more of the same. Nice bitterness. Finish slightly lingers otherwise it is clean. Medium light body that fits well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Label this a "standard" American IPA. The aroma is a bit caged. The beer drinks with a decent malt backbone and a fairly normal balance. Clean, well made, but a tad uninteresting, yet still good, IMHO. (#5656, 8/28/2014)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lovely bright golden, very fresh pine aroma. Pleasantly bitter, slight citrus acidity. Hops are the main event, but it’s not in-your-face intense. The bitterness is well-rounded and balanced. Very good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit of sweet cotton candy, citrus and some underlying pineapple and hints of caramel malt. The palate follows the nose and has some nice juicy hop character, pine, candied orange, pineapple, grass. The overall mouthfeel is a touch on the sticky side with a residual sweetness that does balance out the heavy bitterness late in the palate just wish it was a touch drier on the finish.

Tap at the Steel Toe tap room. Gold in color and a visually appealing lacing. Aroma leans on the pine expected from an IPA. Taste follows suit with an aggressive, yet palatable bitterness. Refreshing and satisfying. The shoe fits.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice pine aroma. Taste is hop-forward pine resin, a nice dry bitterness in the middle with slight malt balance in the end. Super smooth palate. Not bad at all!
