This should be classified as an IIPA. Big big malt and big big hops combine to make an excellent northwest style ipa. Malty and rich in the aroma followed up with a roundhouse kick of PNW hops, piney, grapefruit, fuzzy and citrusy. This beer teeters on being slightly too bitter...but then the malt balance tips the tables back toward balanced. The cracker-like malt is not lost in the dry finish.

I grabbed this beer as a "try new" beer... I found it to be one of the best, if.not the best IPA’s I’ve tried thus far. A light flavor with a mild hoppy taste, which leaves you with a mild aftertaste... which you’ll enjoy.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Seahawks stadium. Light orange amber colour, medium off-white head. Aroma is a little stinky wet hair and citrus oil (I think the lines need cleaning). Flavour is thinnish malt (more reed/straw than caramel) and bitter citrus with some light pine. Better than any draft lager here, but not great by PNW IPA standards.
