22oz bottle. Amazing aroma of spicy hops jumps out of the glass. Simply fantastic and bright hop aroma. The hop flavor in the taste is more subdued, and the dominating trait is a lightly resinous cereal malt sweetness with the rye sticking out. Taste is still very nice, just doesn’t live up to the promise from the aroma.

Bottle in Seattle. Lovely wafting aroma. Solid funk, cheese, a little lemon. Some rye brashness. Bright white cream on cloudy yellow white body. Bright, kind of unusual appearance. Clean, full IPA. Sweet hops, Nelson, some grape must. Rye is in check and a nice compliment. Simply fantastic.

Nice spicy and piney aroma and flavors. Mildly sweet and relatively complex. The kind of beer that would be easy to drink quite a few. Light caramel color and a medium body. Not too filling.

This is an absolutely amazing ipa. There’s a gigantic white wine characteristic from the Nelson Sauvin hops. Aroma is fruity, tropical and full of pungent hoppiness. Taste is again, white wine and tropical citrus juice. So many awesome flavors with a bone dry finish. I really loved this and highly recommend it. Cheers!

Man, this stuff tastes so good. Aroma is just right malt with true Nelson tart, fruity, but also a little resin. With these malts, super easy drinking. Slight chewy body. I want more!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light orange/deep yellow slightly cloudy pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of passion fruit, piney hops, soap, and light malt. Thin to medium body, very drinkable which can be somewhat dangerous given the ABV. Nice snappy finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich light copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head, about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pure new world hops with some passionfruit, orange zest, citrus, perfume and a bunch of light malt noticeable as well - fairly balanced. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hops up front but not terribly bitter, but still packing the tropical fruit flavour, with some noticeable malt and earth showing as well near the end. Aftertaste shows some bitterness from the hops, but also a lot of perfume and some grass as well. Overall, a pretty well-balanced IPA, but nothing exceptional or really worth searching out - this was fine, but I was expecting a better West Coast IPA from this brewery. I sampled this 65 cL Green Flash-styled tall bottle purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 17-January-2016 for US$7,69 sampled at home in Washington after just returning from Europe a few minutes earlier on 27-March-2016.
