3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper coloured body with a hint of a deep amber and orange glow with a two centimetre thick tan head. Aroma of alcohol, pine, resin, earth, caramel, malt and a decent amount of grapefruit. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy, herbal, piney and resinous hop flavours with a little woodsy and herbal notes more than the others near the end. Aftertaste shows a good blend of malt and hops, some alcohol and a very dry, herbal taste at the end, all with some caramel sweetness, but this is all about the hops. Overall,a good and rather earthy, floral and bitter IPA with a lot of caramel malt noticeable. Cool to try and a different take on the style, especially being in Southern California, I was surprised and happy to see a non-Southern California IPA! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from City Liqour House in San Diego, California on 08-June-2013 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of this great land on 07-October-2013.

Absolutely love the color. Otherwise, pretty standard ipa. Decent hop presence, but nothing to write home about. I wish it was a little deeper and more complex.

Nice color. Burnt orange. I am not too impressed with though. A bit harsh to the palate. I am just not in the mood to dissect this one right now.
