2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep hazy brown sienna color with a two finger foam. Nose is shredded wheat and a touch of grassy citrus and cardboard, The palate is malty and murky... no real hop appeal except a lot of bitterness that burns a bit on the finish. Not a fan.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roughly six month old bottle. Poured a medium amber gold orange, light haze, nice head. Aroma was grassy and citric hop. Flavor was lightly caramel accented malts, and a hop profile that matched the nose. A bit more grassy and floral than expected, would have liked a bit more fruitiness. But not bad.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat hazy straw yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is light hops with a tiny amount of citrus. Flavor is rounded hoppiness with a light pine finish. Could use a little more malt to balance and create a fuller body. Hops are actually fairly faint for an IPA and it comes off mildly watery. It also has an odd smokey finish as well. Not bad, definitely sessionable, but doesn’t leave a huge impression.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Stag’s Head, Manhattan NY on 2nd July 2013. Very hazy gold with off-white film top and almost no lacing. Biscuity malts and cheesy yeasts in aroma. Very hoppy in mouth: grapefruit, spice and tangerine seltzer, with a cookies’n’creme malty background. Great bundle of flavour. Dry hoppy finish with slight saltiness. Zingy carbonation was "just right" for the intensity of flavours delivered.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle - September 2013 batch. Wow! As a White Birch enthusiast from the start I can’t believe I have not rated one of their flagship brews! The pour is hazy pale yellow with a fizzy, foamy white head that fades a tad and leaves lots of lacing clinging in its wake. The aroma is alive with floral hops, biscuit notes, and the White Birch in-house yeast. The body is medium and resiny with a keen smoothness to it. The floral Western hops explode on the palate along with a slight citrus-like sweetness. An American style IPA that hopheads should like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Pours a light murky copper with a thin, but long lasting off-white head that leaves a light trail of lacing. Aroma has a light spruce tinge to it, light floral notes. Flavor is tangy with some light citrus bitterness, a touch of caramel, light breadiness. Fades just a bit in the finish. Thick enough mouthfeel.
