4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Loved it. Not quite clear amber, large white head, good retention, and good lacing. Nose of sweet malts and American PNW hops ... strong notes of grapefruit and note of pine behind. Great mouthfeel. Taste of sweet malts, orange peel bitterness, then sweet melon, then pine, then more bitterness, with a long bitter finish. Great stuff. Bonus point for coming in at a drinkable 7.5% instead of some of the higher numbers on other imperial or double IPAs.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clear gold with a small white head. Wet grass aroma and a bit musty as well. Average hop flavor with a semi-metallic aftertaste. Solid bitter aftertaste. To me, this falls into the category of a solid IPA but not outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A golden yellow-orange with medium small white head. Aroma grassy and citrus hops and a bit of malt. Medium body. Slightly carbonated. Flavor herbal and piney hops, moderately bitter, bit of malt sweetness. Not that complex or anything but good balanced, well made and very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smell of hops. Clear golden colour, high white head. Aroma of alcohol, citrus, hops, earth. Bitter. Flat and mid-plentiful carbon. Mid-oily texture. Slightly stinging, could benefit from lower alcohol content.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Throws a near-clear deep yellow, under a finger of fully diminishing white head. Big aroma of caramelized malts and resiny/fruity US hops. Smooth and chewy in the mouth. Healthy body. Taste is substantially bitter. Not overdone, with piney and fruity flavors, and a rich semi-sweet malt body to back the bitterness. An archetypical American IPA. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Ledo. Pours a clear dark golden with quickly fading head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is hop bitterness, slight lemon citrus and muted malt notes. Flavor is classic IPA, with hop bitterness and solid malt backbone. Alcohol is not masked, which leaves a slight finish of booze and acidity.
