2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Just fine IPA. Floral hops with resin and pine in the body. Bitter and clean finish? Slightly creamy mouthfeel for an IPA. Not much else to say.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 10 oz at the brewery. Judging from other ratings, TRVE had some quality issues to start. Well, in my experience they have been solved. This IPA is very solid. That?s the best way to describe it. Clean, pine forward with a little citrus, good malt balance with a medium palate. The nose gives a little dank, resinous quality and the flavor is smooth caramel and evergreen. Balance is spot on with enough hops to make this clearly an IPA. It?s clean and absent of any brewing flaws.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops plus some pale/caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy gold - a fairly straightforward ipa here - soft carbonation - medium sweet up front, followed by some piney and floral hops that, in the end, kind of taste a little like sandalwood soap - medium bitterness and acidity - plenty of other local ipas that are significantly better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at GABF on Saturday October 13, first session
This had run out at the brewery, since they needed to deliver it to the GABF and then sold out by the time I visited TRVE. I was happy to see they still had it at GABF though.
Hazy golden color, white head. Hoppy, citrus, caramel scent. Medium smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness. Chili aftertaste. Caramel, hoppy scent.
