-Unfiltered ipa with cascade hops.

A: Creamy light tan head sits above a brightly orange colored body that has a dense transparency. A steady rise of effervesce with a weak show of lacing. Coverage sticks around well into the drink. Hazy, but hardly any indication of unfiltering.

S: Soft aroma of fresh, citrus, could of been stronger, no real malt support or presence. meh.

T: A bit owfwashy citrus at first. The malting is shallow the hopping linear, stale citrus, some toasted character but not much. Toasted citrus peel, but hardly a saving grace.

M: Frothy mouthful, thin bodied, feels washy, dry, high rate of carbonation but not particularly crisp. Finishes washy, weak.

O: Coarse flavorless hopping, shallow malting, no nose support, feels a bit washy at times. Disappointing, had thier FF Dekoorc Eert which i though was very good, perhaps a bit underated, this was the danny devito to arnold schwarzennegger (ff) in twins.

Poured into a snifter on 4/27/13

Deep browned orange with standard Dark Horse cloudiness. I tried but didn't get a particularly lofty head. There isn't much retention either, just a soapy layer of various sized bubbles. It does have decent lace though.

Dank Cascade aroma - pine needles, soapy lemon and orange peel. Herbal overtones. Slightly sweet bread notes. This translates to into flavor in much the same way - sticky, resinous pine with dank citric tones worked in. Moderate bitterness throughout with aspirin bitterness on the finish. Bready malt with maybe a slight caramel suggestion. Medium, maybe medium-full for the style. Heavy on the resin. Moderate on the grittiness and carbonation.

Not too bad but the harsh medicinal bitterness seems unnecessary.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy copper with some sediment floating; small off-white head that leaves nice retention and solid lacing. The aromas seem to be malt forward. Lots of dark fruits along with subtle hints of citrus. It actually smells like a barleywine, but on a smaller level. Raisins and orange seem to shine. Caramel is definitely in the mix. The aromas seem to carry on to the flavors. Lots of orange zest along with hints of lime. Some grapefruit. More caramel malts. Some raisins and figs are there. Very subtle hints of pine resin. The hops do their thing, but seem to get cut down by the malts. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with active carbonaton. It's smooth and creamy; it ultimately goes down pretty smooth.

So I guess I wasn't nuts about the IPA variety pack, but I appreciate Dark Horse sticking with traditional examples of the style and not going for the sexy west-coast style. That being said, this is well crafted, but ultimately forgettable for me. I probably liked this one the least out of the three.
