3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of orange, citrus, caramel and toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Bitterness waits until the finish to fully kick in. Gives you time to taste orange juice, grapefruit rind, citrus, toasted grain. Clean. Thanks wnoble.

It’s toasted straw with a broken sheet of light, loose white foam. I could smell this when I cracked it open - mangoes initially, then grapefruit, sweetened malts, resin, some pineapple. Taste is resin, bitter, sweet malts, lemon peel, and some more pineapple. Medium on simply syrup with a lower carb and semi dry finish. Nice beer, a little cloying like so many IPAs these days.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is quite citrusy, full of citrus and piney hops, and some biscuity malt to back. Flavour is pretty much identical, bringing out dry piney and citrus hops upfront, backed by just enough crisp biscuity malt. Light lingering astringency on the finish. Very well-balanced, crisp and thirst-quenching. A solid, by-the-books IPA here.

Cloudy orange in color, good carbonation, smells of fruity hops. Creamy, very mellow, smooth IPA. Hoppy but no bite at the end of the taste. Overall good IPA.

Ummm. Not sure about this aroma. So is the flavor. Soapy. Hazy gold with a pure white head. A little nice bitter citrus flavor. Just way too soapy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Taphouse downtown Seattle. Pours bright gold with great lace. Aroma is very fresh just ripe tropical fruit, a little pine. Flavor is lore grapefruit and pine, dusty grain, not overly bitter. Feel is soft and dense with modest carbonation. Pretty good. Not a standout in this crowded NW field.

HQT night: Bottle. Good amber color and head. Just nothing wrong with this beer. Strong hop aroma, plenty of bite. Refreshing. Crisp. Dry. Thumbs up...can’t wait to get one of these at the brewery from the tap.
