3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as an extra from PilsnerPeter. Thanks! My 233rd IPA rate keeping my atop my perch as the #1 rater of IPA in the State of Washington - hell yeah I feel good about trivial uselessness on the internet - I’m the man! Nice fruity aroma, I got lots of citrus - orange mostly, some tangerine, some earthy notes, and some lightly sweet caramel malt. Pour was hazy golden amber with a thin head and some sticky lace. Initial toasty caramel sweetness, oranges, tangerine, followed by an earthy dry bitterness in the finish that lingers on the palate for a second. A highly drinkable IPA with interesting mix of flavors.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.

Sorprendente IPA. Color naranja oscuro, ligeramente turbia. Aroma a lúpulo por los cuatro costados. A medida que vas bebiendo, se nota más y más el lúpulo. No llega a dejarte la lengua dormida pero sin lugar a dudas, se nota su presencia.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Seven types of hops were used in the creation of this beer, sadly though, the taste gives the impression that no malt was harmed. This beer is hoppy, and poorly balanced. I’ve not had a lot of love for Weyerbacher beers and this doesn’t help their cause.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A clear medium to dark amber beer, with an average sized, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with notes of tea and exotic fuits. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/smooth texture, lively carbonation, dry and long finish with moderate bitterness. Pretty fresh and nice IPA, underevaluated here IMHO. Rather dark and toasted, not particularly original, but very enjoyable. Clean bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours amber golden with a small, fast fading sudsy white head. Nose is earthy, lightly spicy, some citrus and a fair amount of grainy malt. Not sure on freshness of this bottle but I’d bet against it being super fresh. Flavor shows more of this with some bitterness and sweetness but very little hop FLAVOR left here. Meh.

Hazy deep amber beer, little pale tan head. Light dry palate. Caramel malt - a little raw. Bitter pine with a little citrus. Dry finish with a mild bitter linger. This might have faded or else it’s a bit muted.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bar notes (always assumed I had entered this by now): Orange with a white head. Citrus, spicy, malts, light sweet malt backbone in the aroma. Medium, roughly carbonated body. Flavor is mostly spicy and citrus hops, and a light sweet fruity finish. Always gravitated to this at the end of a night at Druid’s Keep and it would completely wreck me. Good, hoppy IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Very hazy red color with a medium to full sized off-white to lightly beige head that lasts for a decent while. Smell malts, fruits and hops. Taste malts, fruityness, hops and firm bitterness. Medium carbonation, medium to full body. Nice.
