3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared from cans into Duvel goblets, thanks Scott! It poured a mostly-clear golden colour, some chill haze, with sudsy white foam which quickly dissipated. Fairly neutral grainbill, just a hint of caramel sweetness, definitely a hops-forward balance. Strong hoppy bitterness, flavour and aroma. Struck me a mostly a Columbus which cuts right through anything, contributing resiny character too, but supplemented with some other fruitier and citrusier varieties. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, well-concealed alcohol, dry finish with lingering hoppy aftertastes. Good stuff.

Can. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter up front, nice citrus, pine, hops, grapefruit notes with some caramel leading to a very bitter, dry finish. Enjoyable IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grass and earthy hop aroma with a minor citrus hop hint in the back. Orange aroma comes out as it warms. Biscuity malt. Pours a clear orange with a full white head. Flavor leans toward a balance of citrus and sourdough bread malt. Moderate high bitterness and a sweet finish. As it warms, some alcohol warmth starts to show. Overall, a little underwhelming and not robust.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice dry style. Full nectar with superb carbonation. A big hop profile is balanced by a dense malt entrapment. Straightforward and to the point.

On tap at Collin's Pub in Seattle. Pours a murky golden brown with a lot of fine head that coats the glass. Milder hop flavors that are well balanced against the alcohol. Enjoyable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Six pack of cans from Julio’s. This is a hazy light amber brew. Frothy off-white head into the glass. Strong aroma of spice and spruce. Flavor is malty up front with layers and layers of bitterness. Slightly muddled, with a very bitter finish. Not very refreshing at all, but a solid IPA.
