Maybe my pallet isn't ready for the IPA since I'm a relatively new beer drinker, but I didn't particularly enjoy this beer. It got a great deal better toward the end, which is why I rated it as average, on taste, but the overwhelming bitterness was tough to get past. I didn't notice much in the way of mouthfeel because of how quickly I swallowed every sip to get past the bitterness. I did enjoy the background flavors though. I believe I would have really enjoyed this beer if it weren't for the bitterness, but I'm pretty sure I could handle it if I just simply wasn't a wimp.

A: Nice thick white head, leaves a lot of lacing, opaque gold color. Medium sized bubbles.

S: The amarillo hops come out first with a lot of floral notes.

T: Light floral hops, and standard bitterness for the style. Having not had a plain ol' single IPA in a while, it seems like it's lacking in something.

M: Creamy and rich for an IPA. Moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty good but kind of standard IPA. I like it.

3.76/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a slightly hazy deep gold with copper highlights and a dense one inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma is fairly subtle. Lemon, fresh cut grass, pine, and a hint of cattiness are subtle, with floral hops and slightly sweet, bready malt rounding things out.

Flavor reveals more hop character. There's an initial citrus kick, which subsides to toasted malt, ending decidedly bitter. Tangerine, orange, and mango emerge in subsequent sips, quickly giving way to resiny and earthy, bitter hops at the end. There's enough malt to hold things together, but that's about it.

Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch on the high side, and slight alcohol warmth.

Definitely has the bitterness of an ipa. Flavoring hops make a good showing. Wish there was just a lot more prevalent aroma. And the bitterness is more than my palate favors.

3.63/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pale orange IPA with excellent foam and lacing. Good carbonation as well.

Smell: Very strong pine cones. Very Northwestern.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Similarly to the smell, the flavor is full of Cascade hops. A bit too assertive on the hop bitterness, but it finishes with a nice resiny mouthfeel. Medium-full body.

Overall Drinkability: A pretty IPA that could use some more balance or some toning down of the hops.

Serving type: on-tap
