3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear copper pour with a big foamy head. Not much aroma but a lot of flavor. Medium high hops balanced with some dark sugar rum. Full flavor. Good solid IPA but might seem weak compared to all the new wet hop/double/imperial IPAs out there.

This is a good IPA. Falconer’s version of their Rotator series is nicely balanced with good hop character.

sixer from cat kicks .. . pours a medium caramel amber .. . mild head, lacing too .. . light hay grass and herby citrus .. . quite the mild american style ipa but sessionable, but this is a bit to dumbed down for me- this hop needs to be in your face .. . . portabello mushrooms can be used as hamburger buns, right scoobs??

Bottle. Pours amber with big head and lots of lacing. Citrus aroma and flavor balanced nicely with malt. Short bitter finish. Overall a very decent West coast IPA especially for the price.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a blood orange with a white head. Aroma is sweet and hop, with emphasis on the earthy. Taste is earthy as well, with plenty of the citrus sour from the hops. Ends a little stale from too much sweet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden amber color with a decent off white head that dissipates slowly to a cap. Smells of spice, pine, and citrus with a bready biscuit malt back bone. The flavor is sweet bready malt with a nice hit of resinous and grapefruit hop flavor with a solid shot of hop bite. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous slick mouthfeel. Not a bad IPA and better than I expected from this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
~Fruity aroma of blackberry and citrusy grapefruit along with some resinous pine. Bready biscuity malt in background with light caramel.
~Pours clear amber color with lasting dense off white head.
~Bitter resinous pine flavor through out. Wish there was more fruitiness to balance it out. Bready malts in background.
~Medium bodied, medium co2, piney long lasting finish.
~ Really enjoyed the aroma. Could pick out different hop nuances. The flavor gets muddled and a bit one dimensional. Still enjoyable, but with all the other great IPA’s I won’t be buying this one.
