3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber Bottle bought at Champanes,
this ale had a copper pour with some red hue at the edge of the glass, the pour made a three finger creamy, off-white head of bubbles that had a slight orange-yellow color to them, the glass had a little haze and particles in the beer, when the last of the bottle was poured the beer got hazier and had more particles, when the head receded it left some nice lacing, the bottle had a thin layer of sediment,
this IPA had aromas of grapefruit, citrus and grass hops, the hops also were a bit piney and had a guava fruit touch, the malt was in the background, there was faint lemon and orange fruit, and a little malt sweetness,
the flavors had lots of hops, hops were grassy with a bit of pine, grapefruit and lemon citrus, a little toasted malt in the background, there was very little sweetness, the finish had a big hop bitterness and fruit citrus with hop bitterness lingering afterwards,
there were lots of hops on the nose, the malt was in the background, hops were out front in the flavor to, this was a simple IPA with a good hop punch, the hop lovers will enjoy this drink.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Classically good IPA, and the fresh hop angle is not a gimmick. Grapefruit and to a lesser extent pine come out in the flavor, with little resin. Malt base is there but as a supporting cast member to provide balance. Good bitterness but not crazy. And, indeed, the grapefruit and pine flavors from the hops come across as fresh, perhaps in their crispness or clarity. A-

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big foamy head clear golden pour. Aroma of buttery peaches. Tastes slightly briny with significant buttery resin on the palate. A step up from other two beers products, but still out of balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thick, six or seven centimetre tall tan head - ridiculous! Aroma of light earthy and slightly floral hops, some light caramel and toffee and a hint of maltiness - fairly light. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops up front with hints of pine, earth, flowers and a bit of toffee sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows well with a hint of alcohol, a nice hoppy flavour that isnít overly powerful and a good sweetness. Overall, a nice beer to try that probably was a bit hoppier when it first arrived here in Alaska! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage, Alaska (Northern Lights Blvd) yesterday on 22-May-2013 for US$6.95 sampled in my hotel room here in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-May-2013.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, golden orange pour. Caramel malt heavy IPA, lighter notes of pine. Probably not imbibed as fresh as brewers intended but decent flavor but hops were dominated by caramel maltiness. Ok

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Chuckís.
Straightforward Pac NW IPA. Tasty but unexceptional; Amarillo and Simcoe donít do as much here as I would have hoped.
