2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep clear copper color with about a 1" white head that sustains pretty well.
Smell is bready/grainy with some pine. A bit too malt forward for an IPA.
Taste is similar. Strong bready and caramel malt bakcbone with some slightly astringent pine dry bitter finish. Hints of some wood as well give it a unique taste.
Mouthfeel is good with good carbonation.
Perfectly drinkable beer although the dry bitter finish may make having more than 1-2 of these unpalatable. Nothing horrible, but nothing great either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with a lacing and partly lasting frothy off-white medium head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruit, toffee, citrussy and herbal hops. Taste is moderate sweet and light+ bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes sweet with a lingering moderate bitterness. This beer begs for more aroma hops, the sweet malt base is left with all the attention.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured up amber with a head that died out almost soon after it was in the glass. Aroma is sweet with a grass and fruitish smell. Taste is fruitish with a odd malt flavor and slight alcohol. Not exactly my first pick for an IPA but it is still at least drinkable.
