3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Stumbling Monk, Seattle
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Penetrating hop aroma, with an animal accent. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit dry; toffeish malt flavor, strong bitterness, orange peel, hop resins, but also a light chicory touch.
Very fresh and oily hops, pleasant juice, but something in the final still needs to be tuned.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from LetsPour.com. Pours light amber with a transient white head. Aroma is a mix of floral/fruit. Maybe citrus. Med + body. Flavor is very "mosaic" with floral/melon/fruit. Arguably some of the harshness is citrus. Harsh? Yes, lots of hop. This is very NW, except it’s not all pine and/or citrus. Definite hop burn. Really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Seattle Winter Beer Festival 2014, pours a crystal clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, along with some biscuity malt. Flavour brings out more of mineral water, piney hops, and dry biscuity malt. Very well-balanced, with a nice dry palate. Nice IPA.

12oz can, thanks to umich03jm! Mostly hazy orange golden amber color. Good thin off-white head, with good retention. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Fantastic pine and grapefruit citrus up front. Some sweet caramel malt. Medium body. Super smooth, kind of fluffy texture. Lighter, creamy carbonation. Lightly slick. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. A tasty hoppy IPA without being too dry. Good malt sweetness to back up the big hop. I like it a lot, despite it being sweeter (doesn’t skimp on the hop). Looks like a pretty complex bouqet, reading from the ratebeer description... No wonder! Super delicious big hop, yet super swiggable. What’s not to love. The bigger sweetness makes this a great pairing with my sandwich. Much better than expected!
