3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 1-11-15. Pours a nice, clear bronze with moderate effervescence and a large amount of uneven, cream-colored head. Produces good lacing. Looks good. Nice, pleasant, floral, dry hoppiness in the aroma. Subtle yet surprisingly strong but quite nice smell features scents of pine resin and cedar. Pleasant, hoppy flavor is floral and dry. The flavor largely matches the aroma, though itís not quite as strong. Nice, dry, dirt-like aftertaste. Light body. Soft in the palate. Insubstantial palate effects. Overall, this is a one-dimensional beer, but it is good in that one dimension. Really well done. This is exactly what a beer of this style should be. Itís aromatic, flavorful, and drinkable, and itís the best session IPA Iíve had. This is a very well done, professional effort by a darn good brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Beer Authority, Seattle. Bubbly head on more clear dark gold. Lighter body of course, much more like an amber-malt pale. Some hop, crisp certainly, but overall vacant malts. Very clean, some bittering on finish. Nice enough.
