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.

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

Dank, floral, grassy aromas. Pours golden with a pillow top with dense white foam and good lacing. Light body, smooth at the start breaking into star fruit, pine, floral flavors and a nice dry bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly dank single IPA from Yakima. Big pine resin filled nose. You can smell the hops. Flavor is a touch of pineapple malts up front moving right into a bittered hop vine vibe all the way through the finish. Great lingering palate.

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

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
