2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with a limited head. Aroma is one-dimensional: hops with perhaps a hint of yeast. The taste is, frankly, quite unpleasant I get an initial taste of salty, burnt malt followed by an unbalanced blast of hops that are more rank than bitter. Palate is watery. A considerable disappointment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear dark orange with a thick frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange peel. Taste is sprucey, resin on the finish. Good flavor and balance I think.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours darker golden with a thin head, aroma is pine and hops and some citrus. The flavor is a somewhat heavy, not malty IPA, very hoppy and the alcohol really comes through. An average IPA, so far not too impressed with this brewery.

12 oz bottle, decent hop aroma but the flavor is really flat and just plain bitter and hop water.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, pours an amber body with an off whit head. Citrus, grapefruit hoppy bitterness. A mild earthy tone. Initially its more sweet then the bitter herbal hop resinous earth y character dries it out. Nice ipa.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber orange pour with a chunky white head. Caramel aroma, little touch of pine. Definitely has a lot of sweet malty flavor up front, finishes sharply bitter and resinous with pine and cedar characteristics. Has a lingering woody bitterness. The strong pine character of this is distinct from other IPAs I’ve had, and this is good for any time I’m craving strong bitterness. This is not bad, but it’s also not really what I look for in an IPA.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark golden with a small white head. Fairly mild grassy hops aroma and flavour. Refreshing IPA, but nothing special here.
