Really well balanced. They nailed that with this beer. The aroma isnít very heavy of hops or malt itís just kind of soft and muted. The taste is really nice though. Lots of juicy fruit and a slap of bitterness. Nothing that is going to scorch your palate. Itís just a really pleasant hoppy bitterness with those awesome tropical fruits and malt balance. Nothing bad to say about this IPA, itís excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy darker brown with a one inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of raisin, malt, caramel, hops, pine, resin and citrus. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Never realized it had a higher abv.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can, thanks to Ed. There is a definite husky, metallic, astringency to this beer that dominates the flavor. The Hop aroma is nice and citrusy. Sweet maltiness, but not overly so. I am thinking the astringency balanced the malty sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a clear, amber color with a nice white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus and grapefruit. Smooth, floral notes. Nice citrus presence with some hops in the flavor. Hard to tell how strong it is. Really good IPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours orange with deep red hues and off-white head. Aroma is a bit dirty, piney, very malt forward- caramel. Taste is bitter but not very complex. Decent but really very basic, a good for an introductory IPA.

Another mild beer from Upslope. It appears that the specialize in producing beers with a slightly higher amount of alcohol and they cover it up using a variety of different ingredients. The dominant ingredient takes the beer name. Alcohol covered with hops. Not too much hops though.
