Draft. Worthy Brewery. COD tasting night - Dale Crawford. By far the best beer in the brewery. This is good stuff, good IPA...comparable with any Central Oregon IPAs, and that is saying something coming from Bend Oregon, the beer mecca of the NW. I highly recommend it. to anyone who is passing through Bend.

Bottle from Albertsons. Seeing some high scores, and not getting it. Pretty average, run of the mill IPA. Well constructed, drinkable, not overly hoppy. Good, but not great.

A presença dos 5 lúpulos trouxeram um frutado saboroso e amargor em equilíbrio. Excelente cerveja!!!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 33cl bottle, pours a hazy amber color with an off-white head that did not stay long. Aroma is nice, strong caramel and floral hops. Flavors of nuts, straw, grass, hops, yeast. Cream in mouth, light sweetness and light bitterness. Medium grassy hops finish in mouth. a nice pleasant beer.

Prominent citrus pine aroma in a hazy golden amber pour. Flavour is a tasty fruity malt with just enough hopiness to prevent it becoming sweet. Finish is much the same (fruity) and nicely sustained. Probably lacking the hop forward balance expected of an IPA but a most enjoyable brew anyway.

Very malty scent, with just a hint of hops. Tastes slightly bitter, with the same malt forward flavor, with little hops. Golden color with a bit of cloudiness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very decent IPA. Wasn’t quite sold on it but it has a decent malt base to back up moderately heavy hops. Not so resinous and sticky as alot of Oregon IPAs. Light sweet toasted caramel malts are a nice presence with solid but not lingering bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 7/10/15
Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, pine/resin on pale malts and a bit of caramel/toffee
Appearance: It pours a darker orange color with a clean off-white head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes of bitter hops, bit more citrus than the aroma, still lots of pine, fairly malty as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a long, fairly dry close
Solid IPA. Definitely on the bitter side. Not a top of style example, but certainly a flavorful enough offering.

This IPA in a can is a little more on the malty side. This costs $1.21 from Walmart.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds.
The smell started off with a burnt caramel malt and a slight toasty effect leading into some crisp citrus to piney hops.
The taste was mostly sweet with a slim bitterness running into the toasty malts. Caramel to lingering citrus (bitter) hoppy aftertaste leads into a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes decent as an IPA but does have a sly sweetness rolling over my mouth.
Overall, for an IPA coming from the west coast, I’d say, hmmm....if you’re going to send to Vermont, either send better stuff or fresher, no need to seek this out again.
