Darker than some IPAs otherwise a good NW style of it, sweet carmel malt body supports piney and lightly citrus hops. alexsdad06 (10821) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2011
22 oz. bottle from kenb consumed 3/10/10. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized, but disappearing white head. The aroma had floral and piney hops straight from the Pacific Northwest over top of some caramel dipped bready malts. The flavor had sweet citrus and floral hops, caramel malts, toasted bread, and earthy bitterness. The floral notes lend to a mildly soapy sensation. The finish is dry with decent bitterness. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Deep caramel, dirty amber hues, sediment, moderate foamy sand colored head, sticky lacing.   Hoppy aroma, slight cheese and old citrus peel.   Moderate bitterness on the tongue, pale malts, a little stale.   Otherwise standard.   Mild sweetness.   Wished this one was a little sweeter.   Otherwise pretty straight forward.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quick, soft bitterness lingers.   Yeah, could use a little more citrus type sweetness.   Not as good as the Oakshire I had the other night.   Tiz okay, average. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 28, 2010
From a 22 oz bottle, this pours a hazy amber with medium sized off-white head. Nose of floral and pine hops. Medium body with good carbonation and lively mouthfeel, but yet smooth. Flavor is caramel malts, floral and pine hops and lots of bitterness. Long dry bitter finish. A classic Northwest hop monster, and very well done. shigadeyo (3790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2010

3/10/2010: Laurelwood Prevale India Pale Ale... Aroma: Lush, sugary citrus. Appearance: Shiny, deep golden color; nearly two fingers of beige foam; fine, detailed lacing. Flavor: Sugary toffee and fruity, citrus, pine (artificial and cleaner-like, but not horrible) hoppiness; mild to moderate bitterness. Palate: Medium-bodied; soft mouthfeel, nearly cask-like. Overall: Ample hop bitterness, but lacking in bitterness; pretty good overall

22oz bottle. Great solid western ipa. Awesome hoppy nose with beautiful pine with some citrus. Well balanced with tight malting, very smooth. A bit of a bitter end. Quintessential, rad. Tmoney99 (14985) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2010
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark amber color with an average to large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a oily slick texture with lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew and expectations where exceeded.

pours a clear orange with a red tint, a medium size off-white head, and great lacing.
smell is of light grapefruit, a little lemon, and caramel.
taste is watery, grain, hops, citrus, and earth, ends a little on the dry side. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2010
