Appearance – This AIPA is light orange in color and crystal clear with a nice, retentive head.

Smell – The big, citrusy hops are lightly spiced and come with some orange peel remnants and a bit of a malt balance.

Taste – Where did all this malt come from? This is a malt bomb. There are some grainy notes here at the tongue but the hops turn sharp and leafy.

Mouthfeel – This medium-bodied ale has a strong, uncomfortable bitter finish.

Drinkability – This was a very awkward ale that I managed to finish due to an incredible display of drinking discipline.

This sat a plain looking copper-orange in the glass without much of a head. Floral flavors are plentiful. This doesn't have the punch of hops that one has come to expect in this sort of beer, but it does have the expected bitterness. Nicely drinkable; I feel like I should have had another.

A decent bang on west coast ipa, enjoyed at the brewpub. Light reddish colour. A lot of hops , everything was on the higher hoppy side, but also a lot of carbonation. Still decent drinkable bt would be more so if not so much carbonation. Some off notes.

A - Cloudy honey orange almost has a maple finish color (if that make sense). Firm white head and okay lacing.

S - Fresh Citrus, muted pine and some toasted malt.

T - Bitter up front with the citus and pine the background has toasted and carmel malt notes.

M - oily and slick with an unexpected dry finish.

D - Everytime I come to 3rd Street Aleworks I enjoy this tasty brew.

Poured from the tap to a light reddish-orange with a thin white head that lingered thru mid glass and left decent lacing. Nose was a nice crisp citrusy grapefruit, mouthfeel was full and tingly and the flavor even accentuated the grapefruit more than the nose. This all led to a full long finish.

A pleasant surprise from this out of the way place.

Presentation: Sampled at the Third Street Aleworks over the New Year weekend. Listed on the chalkboard just as IPA from recollection.

Appearance: Simple looking brew, orangey body with a soft but flaccid looking whispy head. Average carbonation. Basic looks.

Nose: Malts seemed more prevalent than the hops, baked bread and a light grass floral middle.

Taste: A soft IPA, light hops but solid malts. Verging on a half decent Pale Ale but not that enthralling for an IPA. Lacking.

Mouthfeel: Enough conditioning to carry through the malts but the lack of hops lends a flat feel overall.

Drinkability: Did the Pint, but one was enough.

Overall: Very average and forgetful when compared to other local IPA’s.

Orange gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty, fruity and a touch floral. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are nutty and sweet. Touch of fruit. Hops are grapefruity and piney. Smooth taste. Balance is a touch towards the hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

A-Pours a fairly clear, dark gold color. Minimal head. Head does leave some lacing.

S-Not incredibly intense but a bit coarse. Grapefruit and pine mostly. Hop forward but I don't love how the hops are presenting themselves here.

T-More of the same. Each sip makes me like this beer less and less. It just tastes like it was put together in an awkward fashion. Bitter but without much flavor behind the bitterness.

M-Medium to light bodied. Dry and bitter. Not too high in drinkability.

O/D-Not a big fan of this one.

Dark orange with a nice head of light tan foam. Aromas of light cascade and citrusy hops and a nice slightly bready maltiness. Kind of boring and one dimensional with the hop variety and flavors though. Taste is not hoppy enough and the maltiness proves kind of boring. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied and the drinkability is just 'ok'. Not horrible, just lacking, especially considering what I was drinking around the corner...
