UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Citrus-piney nose. Very hoppy. Pours an attractive gold color. Bitter with a touch of malt. Satisfying bitter finish. Perhaps a little too bitter for my taste, and didn’t have any noble-hop depth of flavor. No harshness in the bitterness, though and a pleasing brew.

22 oz bottle. Pours yellow, small head. Great version of a NW IPA. Citrus bomb and you can taste the fresh squeezed hops. Nice bitterness on the tongue. Very easy to drink and balanced well.

On Cask at Hopyard. This stuff is AMAZING in casks! Sweet, warm and hoppy! It tasted almost as if it was wet hopped in the cask! On tap instead of cask, it is not as good. But it is still a bright IPA.

Off the tap with one finger of head on a straw colored body.
The aroma is all pine. Simple but nice.
The taste is moderate bitter from pine and lemon. Straight forward but good.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Overall a solid IPA, though not amazing.

Lighter in color than I’d like. Taste good and lingers a bit which is always pleasing to me. Not bad overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ City Beer, San Francisco. Rated on 14.10.2012.
Pours a copper orange colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of caramel, grassy hops with weak floral notes. Flavour of biscuity malts, very bitter floral and grassy hops and nettles. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a straightforward high bitter finish. Good.

Draft at Auburn Alehouse. Clearish amber with a thick white head. Aroma is citrus, floral, butterscotch and sweet caramel. Flavor is a bit on the sweet caramel side but with rough hop bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Medium body with average carbonation. Not bad but the butterscotch is distracting.
