2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very nice amber color with off white head. Aroma is relatively weak, mostly citrusy hops with a hint of pine. Flavor is also weak, a little more of the pine flavor comes through than in the scent. Palate is somewhat watery and not enough hops in this IPA.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Unimpressive and flavorless as IPAs go. I didn’t get nearly enough hop flavor that I would expect and the carbonation was a little too strong.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Although the appearance is really nice the flavor does not back it up. It has a rather weak hoppy aroma, and the finish is nothing extraordinary.They also do not do a good job hiding the booze in it.

pours a nice amber color with a typical IPA nose. would accompany a 23-year old country styled singer from Oregon. Average IPA...the better of the JWD pack.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear amber with a thin white head. aroma is of piney hops and sweet malt. Flavor is of citrus and pine and starts sweet and finishes slightly bitter. Slightly light on the hops by todays IPA standard, but this was actually better than I expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice thick head and lacing.
Aroma is what you would expect from a weak IPA.
Flavor is soapy citrus, pine, metalic, with a smooth bitter finish.
A bit weak but not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a nice copper color with a small white head. some piney hops on the nose. flavor is very very weak for an ipa. i actually dont see how this can be called an ipa. there regular pale ale has more hop flavor than this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, a bit of hops character, pours a nice copper color with a frothy white head. Slight malt notes, slight hop notes, nothing too special, Nothing wrong with it, they should have recategorized it as just a Pale Ale, and it would have been pretty decent but for an IPA its just a bit too wimply, but it is balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, light copper with a dense, frothy, beige head that leaves behind creamy lace as it diminishes. The aroma is fairly muted for an IPA: piny, citric hops on top of sweet, lightly bready malt. Fairly light bodied, for an IPA, the palate is soft and slick with a mildly bitter finish. Sweet malt up front with citrus and pine notes coming in behind. While it’s a decent drinker, the flavor isn’t particularly inspired. I can think of at least a dozen other IPAs, available locally, that I’d buy before I would purchase this one again.
