3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks Alex), pours an opaque bright orange amber with a medium beige head. Nose is on the maltier side for an IPA, with caramel malt, rich resinous hops, and a little woody element. Flavour is much along the same lines, with a dry woody palate, bringing out notes of dry caramel malt, wood, and resinous hops. Robust flavour profile with a substantial malt backing that thankfully doesn’t imbue too much sweetness. Nice IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. Poured slightly cloudy medium orange with a short, but sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up orange meat and biscuity notes with light pine resin and orange zest accents.. nothing really stood out. The flavor found orange meat, caramel, and biscuity notes at the core, with peppery and lesser citrus notes around.. more tangy and bitter out there.. finished with a mess of tangy and bitter notes. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.. sharp and unpleasant at times.. not all that good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can with thanks to Brian - as EVO IPA. Pours clear orange with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine. Yay. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, nondescript. Lightish body, a bit harsh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce can. Pours a dark reddish copper color with a small white head. A light sweet fruity nose, a bit of diacetal perhaps. The flavor is not very good: bitterness, caramel, a bit of fruit, but fits together in a very harsh green hop dominated way, a bit of sweet corn or butter. Hmm. OK I guess.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a fairly thick light tan head on there. The smell on this one is slightly grassy, but predominantly stale (as a result from sitting on the shelf too long at Total Wine). Taste is bitter, but also tastes far less than fresh. Sad, because this could be good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Unfiltered hazy orange-copper body. Thin, foamy head laces up the glass. Pretty classic IPA, west coast in the sense that the malts are medium light and toasty, with a decent hop bill. Overall this is pretty tame stuff though, almost has a fishy UK feel. Drinkable, but a little lacking in body. Piny wintergreen sticky hops, classic.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can- Pours with a rather large head. Cloudy orange color with too many hop remnants to enjoy(floaties). Flavor is bold with a strong pine flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can - Amber pour with a filmy light tan head. Nose is bready and real sweet, with a bit of grassy and herbal hops. Taste is sweet and bready, real heavy, with light yeast, dry herbal and grass hops, and a lightly astringent finish. Slick and medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Pretty gross for my tastes...wish breweries would stop making IPAs like this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can picked up at CBB. I really live the bew simple yet stylish labels. An opaque orange gold color with a thin beige head. A really nice hoppy bouquet, very floral & enticing. Full bodied & smooth the flavor it gives is floral, pine, citrus with a decent malt backbone. It has a lingering bitter finish with an almost minty quality to it. Tasty.

Can: Poured a murky copper brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is soft hops. Taste is strong floral hops with some grain and malt balance. Finish has more fresh hops chewiness.
