3.53/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

pours a hazy light brown. Sticky white head.

Smells of herbal hops, some sulfur compounds there. Sweet sticky malt. Definitely not overwhelmingly late hopped.

Taste is OK - something sort of stale tasting in there, though. More bitterness than hop flavour. Slightly resinous, maybe some pine. Dry biscuitty malts.

Mouthfeel is good; appropriate moderate carbonation, and adequate body.

Overall - nothing memorable

3.65/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy straw colored body.
The aroma is big grapefruit with some honey in the background. Pretty nice.
The taste is bold lemon and grapefruit bitterness right up front. It moves to the finish with mild sweetness and then has another hit of grapefruit bitterness at the end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a nicely done IPA.

3.75/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cloudy gold with a moderate head of foam, decent lacing, and quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Floral hops, citrus, caramel, spice.

Taste: Grapefruit, pine, caramel spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a very bitter hop finish.

The Verdict: Not bad. Not very well balanced but the malt backbone gives it a good flavor profile. The hops hit your tongue hard without completely overpowering it, but just barely.

3.41/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy cooper with a foamy white head. Lots of carbonation. Smells of caramel, wood and some spice. Tastes of peat, earth and smoke. Some bitterness from the hops. Medium mouth that provides a lingering aftertaste. Quite unlike any other IPA that I've tried. Scotch drinkers would probably like this a lot.
