4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed coppery orange, white head. Definitely smells like my kind of IPA right off the bat. Lots of floral aromatics and citrus. A little caramel and toasty grain on the body, not too malty and pretty dry overall. Light bodied, lots more of that floral and citrus, grapefruit rind, moderately bitter pine finish. Nice stuff, lots of hop character with just the right level of malt backing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Dark orange with gold highlights and a solid inch of pillowy off-white head. The aroma is a typical IPA blend of floral hops, pine and citrus. The taste starts with a strong dose of bitter, herbal hops and earthy malt characteristics along with some grapefruit and orange citrus toward the end. Carbonation is strong and the finish is bitter and tangy. Overall, could use a little more of a caramel malt presence to balance out the spicy citrus and bitter hops notes.

(22oz bomber) Courtesy of Enniskillen. Pours a large white, frothy head atop an orange body. Nose is rather orange. The flavor comes off as astringent and tinny. Not to my liking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Resinous pine and citrus aroma, some sweetness. Light copper colour with off-white head that builds and lasts well. Some malty flavour with light floral hops and late bitterness: not incredibly bitter. Overall very aromatic but light ipa. Quite sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden orange pour with two finger of fluffy sand colored head. Big aroma of hops; mostly grapefruit and citrus. Some florals. Taste is more hoppy, but more bitter than flavorful. Lots of bitters, in fact. I like it, but it needs a little more r&d.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. 6.2% ABV. Pours a hazy orange with a smallish light-beige lacy head that collapses after a minute or two, leaving a ring. Aroma is nice and IPAish, with pine and catbox prominent. Taste starts out sweet for a half a second before the bitterness kicks it to the side and lingers on the tongue. Tastes of DME. I know a lot of people don’t like that flavor in a finished beer, but it doesn’t bother me. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium-full; sticky texture. A good IPA that comes pretty close to being great.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a sizeable head - several fingers. Aroma is spicy, peppery & floral hops. Modest pilsen malt taste ends in an appropriately spicy finish - slightly spicier than average; nice! Crisp body, good carb, spicy and bold.

Very solid West Coast IPA coming from an up and coming brewery in Seattle. Nice aroma with grapefruit hints. Great hazy orange appearance. Wonderful taste with a smooth finish. Definitely recommend. Give it a try when you see it, you won’t be disappointed.

Dark auburn with a nice off white head. Some lacing in the glass. Great aromatics showing off some pine and some citrus peel. Full bodied with pleasant citrus notes and plenty of hops to spare. Seemed quite tame compared to the extremely hoppy beer I had right ahead of it.
