3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
6% version at the brewery
Hazy golden orange color, white head. Good strips of lacing while drinking
Nose was full of hops. Pine, grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Very fresh and vibrant with touches of caramel backbone.
Quite bitter. Lots of pine and citrus but easy to drink. Not sexy but very solid and easy to drink

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Hopvine Pub in Seattle fall hop harvest IPA fest last month - this was by far my favorite of the 6-7 I tried. Pours golden with white head, nose has light fruit, citrus rind. Flavor is dominated by a punchy bitterness with lingering citrus rind bitterness into the finish. Fresh NW hops linger forever in a wonderful finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer is a slightly cloudy orange-amber color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Hops, malt and citrus in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, sweet malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at GABF 2012. A solid and simple IPA. Nothing fancy. No lemon verbena to make it better just a good mix of hops. The bitterness lingers favorably through the sips. Sessionable. Maybe a pale ale?
