4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought this as "Northwestern Ale". Floral nose of pine resin, burnt citrus and spice. Pours a cloudy mahogany. The mostly lasting beige creamy rocky head leaves good lace. Definite british pale overtones here. Nice roasted malt front with no acidity and a long definitive finish. The full body is soft and creamy. Very well done...bravo.
Hazy dank brown with sudsy head.
Slight hop action in the aroma - the malt dominates.
Medium bitterness with malty palate and vague hop action.
For an IPA I expected more. Average.

Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of hops/hops/citrus. Strong hop flavors with malts and a dry finish. tmalaher (307) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
Dark Amber color, not much foam. Slightly bitter taste, with some malt and caramel. Very nice middle of the road ale, I would not call it an IPA.

Great reddish brown appearance w/ small amount of foamy head. Smell of floral notes, malt, with a touch of hops. Quite bitter, pretty strong on the hops, some citrus, not very complex. Percy0103 (788) - MEXICO - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. A cloudy brown beer with a lot of sediments and a small brown head. Aroma is of dried fruits. Taste is bitter with a strange aftertaste that reminds me of malt, spices and dirt. Medium bodied with considerable carbonation and astringency. Very unusual IPA with none of the traditional hoppy character. Sdaniel90 (1115) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. Opaque brownish with a frothy tan head and visibile sediment. Musky caramel and floral hop aromas. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and oily, with low to no sweetness and a stinging fruity bitterness. Intense spicy character and astringency. Harsh with very rooty flavors. Unusual ale, not unpleasant but not the most drinkable. Reminds me of cheap whisky watered down with mineral water.
