4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head with great retention; after it recedes, cobwebby lace is left on the glass. Aroma is super grapefruity, piney. Taste starts out lightly sweet before quickly becoming bitter and remaining that way through the somewhat long finish. Mouthfeel is creamy; carbonation is medium to soft. Itís a real basic Pac-NW IPA, but it hits all the right notes. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlogged blackberry Tick, had bottles of this many times with Annie but this tick is from a North Jersey booze brew fest in 2012. Pours light hazy copper golden with 2 finger white head. Notes of pine, bitter lemon, grapefruit, toasted malt, and herbs. A little thin but not bad. Havenít had this in years but I only imagine its gotten worse like most craft beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a glass from a bottle. Hazy appearance. Aroma is outstanding with strong citrus and pine notes. Taste is consistent with the smell but a underwhelming bitter and grainy finish leaves a lot to be desired.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really have trouble writing reviews for these IPAs because they all, relatively, taste the same to me. High quality, fresh-tasting IPAs are a dime a dozen and very few examples are doing anything dramatically different or re-inventing the wheel. At least not the ones I am drinking. And thereís nothing wrong with that. This is another fine tasting IPA I would qualify as high-quality.

Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Pine and fruits: peach and grapefruit. A little fizzy to me--I donít like it as much as their Detour, but a solid beer.
