3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of orange zest, citrus, melon, light spices, light fruits. Flavor of orange peel, melon rind, tropical fruits, citrus, clove, pale malts, peppery spices in the finish. Lots of citrus/citrus fruits, tart/zesty and interesting.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Post Expansion: West coast tangerine and pine favoring a lighter bodied IPA. Makes sense for Yakima to put out good hoppy beers

Fresh batch on tap at the brewery. Big citrus nose and resin hints. Tastes was balanced yet bold. Maltiness melded great with the bitterness. No idea what changed but this is a much better beer than when I had it a few years ago. Well done!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
OK IPA, but it has an awkward sweetness -- like a combo of caramel, sweet corn and artificial sweetener. Somewhat light bodied; mildish carbonation. Grassy, plant-like bitterness in the finish. Rind in the aftertaste. Some light toast in the background.

Very good beer, after taste was just about right. Aroma was light on the juniper smell, but pleasant overall.

Smells great and tastes even better! Very light but hoppy. A very nice good skunky bitterness to this beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Golden hued amber, somewhat hazy, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Nose is somewhat
hoppy, yet a little wet basement and a smidgen of cardboard.   Smells a bit musty/dusty.   Less of that on the
tongue, but its there.   Decent hop bite, flavorful without being overly bitter.   Yeah, this is rather smooth
too.   Growing on me as I sip more.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, despite it feeling fairly smooth.
Slightly more cardboard/mustiness on the finish.   Not a very hoppy IPA, not all that bitter, remains flavorful,
but the cardboard and mustiness dectract a bit.   Meh, not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a puffy white head, almost a gusher. The hops are big and bright with a light citrus and pine element. Average flavor with a nice hop punch and some light crisp pale malts in the background. Clean and tasty though; fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with JJ. Cool skater dude label. Pours a hazy honey gold with a crazy monstrous bubbly head that leaves sheets of lace. Aroma is fragrant pine, light perfume, and lime, really nice! Juicy hoppy palate, tons of bitter citrus, some pine. Malt base is certainly lighter, allowing these crazy fresh hops to shine. The best IPA of the bunch that weve enjoyed lately.
