2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange in color with a white head. Sort of a rough aroma. Tons of soap, green apple, and alcohol. Some cider, grass, and a bit of sweet bread and toasted malt. The flavor is really no better. Soapy, boozy, and harsh. Lots of green apple skin, quite bitter, and quite grassy. Some sweet toasted bread and a little bit of citrus peel.

not too much of an aroma, maybe faint faint pine hops. Very smooth body, has a decent hop taste, bit of pine, caramel, not bad overall.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has pine and doughy malts. Flavor follows suit...piney/earthy hops and sweet caramely/doughy malts. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter and resinous pine. Just not very tasty at all.

Bottle from CaptCougar/GT2, complete malt bomb, actually undrinkable to me because it tasted so stale and old, no brewed date or date marking of any kind so down it went.

A very nice example of an IPA. Pours clear orange, with very little trace of white head. Aroma is full of sweet floral hops. Taste is citrus and caramel sweetness. Finishes slightly sticky with some hop bitterness. Very sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Perch Pub, pours a lightly clear pumpkin orange, with thin white head, and nice white sheets of lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, toast, and vanilla. Taste is much of the same with a nice orange zest flavor and some delicious biscuity malts to back up the hops. Ultra sessionable. Not as funky and cheesy as most new zealand hopped varieties but still real nice. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable ipa from Duclaw.
