3.78/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic. Bottled 4/11/14.

Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of sticky foam. Aroma is a bit bready, with a lot of potent citrus and pine flavors to back it up.

First sip is quite viscous on the tongue. A lot of bitter flavors rush forth, but there is a solid amount of sweetness to back it up. Firm piney bitter finish - a touch on the harsh side. This has quite a bit of hop flavor, but somehow it doesn't work together harmoniously.

This is a solid IPA, good for scratching that hop itch. Glad I'm drinking this fresh, as I can sense this would go downhill quickly if those piney hop flavors were not there.

3.11/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Out of a bottle, this IPA pours a nice orangy color and has nice typical hop floral aroma. Hop bitterness is intense and not nearly as smooth and balanced as many of the great IPA's out there. The finish highlights the bitterness and noticeable alcohol taste. Merely average for an IPA

3.45/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Tangerine pour with a healthy, oatmeal colored head atop with a quick-paced and glass consuming effervesce within. Good clarity, very light haze, while the head retention was sturdy in its stay. Thick, solid band of foam lace.

S: Lightly dry oranges and pine for aroma of moderate intentions. Dry barley stalks on the trail.

T: Flavor showed bitter orange peels and dry grapefruit. There was a quick flash of hop spiciness, sweet malt pine and spicy oranges all combining with a bittering floral hop nature. Dry hoppy spiciness lingers there-after a bit on the tongue with a toasted malt dryness.

M: Body feels creamy, mid-fullness, dry and bitter.

O: Overall a pretty good wallop of hops, dry, bittering and spicy with a good lingering effect. Fairly good drinkability. One of the better duclaw beers ive had.
