12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a darker copper color. The head is a finger high and pale orange in shade. Retention is very impressive, helped by the aesthetic appeal of the creamy texture. A nice ring of lacing is left on the glass. (4)

Smell: The hops take on a piny, somewhat dank tone here. There are some slight grapefruity twinges, though. It's quite malty by IPA standards, also. I'm picking up a lot of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, and fruit esters. I'd say it's a bit too sweet personally, but it's far from bad. (3.25)

Taste: Definitely a bitter, pine-forward IPA. There are three stages of this brew: an initial piny taste, an upsurge of sweet, almost candy-like malts, and a returning pine-laden finish. The aforementioned finish is really bitter - almost too bitter. On the plus side, it helps to quash some of the sweetness nicely, though some still lingers. (3)

Mouthfeel: The bitterness makes it really dry, but the lingering sweetness helps give it a long finish. Drinkability is solid, which is good for an IPA that leans toward being slightly heavy. Carbonation is high. (3.5)

Overall: A fairly typical 'old-school' IPA - that is to say there's a lot of malt, but also a lot of pine-laden bitterness. Well done for what it is, but I prefer the newer school approach (unobstructive malt, tons of hop flavor, minimal bitterness). This is hard for me to revisit considering it doesn't have any form of bottle dating on it. (3.25)

3.2/5: Decent IPA, but nothing spectacular

3.53/5  rDev -6.6%

A: deep orange/amber. Clear. Small foamy head. Nice lacing.

S: flowers and citrus. Maybe grapefruit?

T: toasty malt element. Grapefruit hop flavor with a huge pine-resin bitterness. Flavor is hop dominated.

M: medium body. Dry. Medium carbonation.

O: decent IPA. Hop forward NW IPA. Good, but tastes like a lot of other IPAs out there.
