4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can pours with a clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma is inviting with spicy hops and pine hops that move into a mild citrus hop note plus a light mix of biscuit malts and sweet maltiness. The taste delivers a mix of sweet malts, pine hops and grapefruit to clementine citrus hoppiness. To midway the hop bitterness surges forward along with some spicy hops as well. There’s a modest sweet malt to crystal maltiness creating a nice base for the hops. Solid IPA.

Nothing special. Lots of better options out there for the money. I suspect IPA is not Upslope's specialty or focus.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. Can. Pours clear, fizzy and dark amber. Aroma is fruit flavors and bold. Taste is heavy, hoppy and bitter. The finish is strong and malty, and the alcohol content seems exact. Great beer...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich, deep plum color. Not enough head to be noteworthy. Aroma is lacking, so gotta go middle of the road there. Medium bodied. Balanced bitterness with the malt and a hint of mint. Is that haiku? No. Spicy finish. Ha.
