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.

22oz Bottle. Deep hazed orange body, chalky head. Honey Mead are on nose with citrus hops. Smooth, cool body that does not punch much. Caramel tinged, sweeter IPA. Very tasty but not exactly what I’m looking for in this style.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bold orange hued amber body with a tall frothy tan head. Fresh grainy bread malt body. Dry malt backbone that is simple yet expressive with a selection of quality ingredients. A touch of toffee and light caramel. Bold sharp hop presence. High impact citrus character with a sharp kick of spice and peppery pine. Crisp finish that borders on the thin side but does so thoughtfully as the light malt punch lets the hops, which - simcoe and amarillo- are well chosen and compliment the base extremely well. I count myself lucky to have randomly chosen this beer for my 1000th rating.

Nice orange pour with a thin lacing head. Floral and bread notes. Some citrus rind alone with a little earth. Feels good in the mouth with a roundness from the malt. Skip’s love of simcoe is apparent with the piney finish. A fine example of a west coast ipa
