2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub in Grants Pass OR. High ABV seems apparent from the taste and warm feel.
Pour was clear dark, red-amber with little visible carbonation, a decent head and minimal lacing..
Aroma: appropriate strong hop aroma is both fruity and herbal.
Flavor: brandied bread; a bit too bitter dispite an apparent (color) bit of darker sweet malts Alcohol esters.
Feel: low-medium carbonation seems too low; a medium body. Some warming.
O: a boozy, bitter, herbal IPA.

IBU 70. Golden in color. Had it in a frosty mug. No head at all. Aroma isn't very powerful, but the flavor is solid. Hoppy and refreshing. Pleasant aftertaste. A solid IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good but not spectacular IPA. Deep copper color. Strongly malt-forward, which is very nice, and bitterness asserts itself at the back end quite nicely as well. This is a solid B/B- IPA -- what's missing are some hop notes of pine, citrus, and/or resin. Nevertheless, I'm satisfied!

12 oz bottle from the brewery in Grants Pass - Aromas of cherries and brown sugar. Very sweet for an IPA. Good, but it’s a bit too sweet for my palate.

12oz bottle provided by Mike and Janet, friends of H24, thanks guys. Rating #24. Dark gold with a nice little white head. Juicy citrus aroma with some light pine, very nice. Nice hop bite, soft palate, more pine and a nice lingering bitterness on the tongue, good stuff. (1306)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange-brown wit a white head. Aroma of apricot, pine, and almond. Flavor is crisp and moderately bitter, more fruit and nuttiness coming through in the finish. A good IPA all around, and with a slightly different fruit profile than most California IPAs.

Really nice hop aroma. This has a light hop flavor at the tip but quite a bit of bitterness later. I found this quite nice.
