3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a hazy light-orange hue w/ a frothy slowly diminishing white head and excellent lacing. Big aromas of pine, orange, and biscuit. Flavor is light sweet initially and a moderate long lasting bitter finish. Taste is pine, orange, pineapple, biscuits and pepper. Medium-bodied, creamy texture, soft to lively carbonation, and a light metallic feel in the bitter finish.
Poured from cans into a pint glass at Nizhoni Ranch, New Mexico, a clear orange amber colour with beige foam, lasting with lace. True-to-style A-IPA. Very much like higher-rated La Cumbre Elevated IPA but I actually like this one better. I especially love the Citra/Simcoe/Chinook interplay. Rich malt sweetness, some caramel plus massive American hops: grapefruit, pine woodsy, spicy, dank weed, melon, tropical fruit, peppery, grassy. Undoubtedly bitter but not harsh, loads of fresh hop flavour and aroma. Medium body and carbonation, smooth alcohol, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Extremely tasty and refreshing.

Can from a friend. Thanks Shawn! Pours a murky rich gold with a smallish off white head. Big grapefruit citrus aroma. Great citrus and tropical taste. moderately hop bitter. pleasant finish and nasal linger. Good IPA! Reid (2539) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2017
20 oz pint at Westside Taproom. West Salem.
Clear lighter orange color beer with a small white wispy head.
Aromas of strong fruity/tropical hops. Peach stone, orange zest and clementine.
Taste is similar to the aromas. Very tropical. Malts are there but definitely take a back seat.
Excellent mouth feel. Perfect carbonation.
Top tier IPA. BeerRenter76 (1015) - Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Nice citrusy aroma with some biscuit and hints of earthy funk. Flavor was about the same with a touch of astringency towards the end. Drinkable, and decent. Zymurgeist2 (2246) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
From the can at Tap & Bottle in Tucson. A recommendation from Scott, the owner. GREAT IPA! Aroma is sensational citrus. Pours a hazy orange with full white head. Massive citrus flavor is not quite as awesome as the aroma, but still a very tasty beer.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Cloudy orange golden pour with small skin of airy head. Funky, musty, citrusy, resembles an APA more than an IPA. A bit of a let down after Elevated. Sammy (12204) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
Just put on tap at the angel’s trumpet. Cloudy orange. Citrus hop aroma. Taste citrus with papaya and a tad pineapple. parkerj (52) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Solid IPA. Not the most interesting hop profile. There’s also a tiny bit of a buttery flavor that’s kind of weird. Beerhammaren (1793) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2015
.33l bottl from Kavu. Tnx Mate! Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, malts, hops and hint of alcohol. Flavor is fruits, malts, bread, caramel notes and caramel. Hops in the end. Kavu (4793) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2015
