Draught. For the west coast this is a flimsy IPA. I was hoping for more bite and grassyness.

Bitter to the point of being one-dimensional. Citrus and floral, citrus and floral, etc.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2012
A dry and very Columbus oriented green-tea/marijuana nose. Crisp with a tight and light carbonation. A light kiwi flavour and acidity with a slow bitterness. The carbonation reminds me Kronenburg 1664 and I donít mean that as an insult, it just does. I think itís nice, the bitterness builds a little too intensely and that weedy flavour could become too much if I bought more than a glass.

Tap at the brewpub. Light amber pour with a thin white head. Big citrus hop aroma. Nice smooth malt body, caramel and a big citrus hop bitterness. Good brew.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Pint at the brewery - Aroma is packed with citrus and pine hops and a malty finish. Flavor of very chewy fresh citrus hops, pine resin and enough malt to balance it. Palate is sticky and tart. Very nice NW IPA.

Nice and hoppy with an orangeish hue. Good balance and strength and the best one I sampled at the brewery.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Orange amber, rather flavor looking, with a slight ring of head. Intense Columbus hop nose. Musky co-humulone loaded pungence with fringes of cattiness. Initially, flavor is not as intense, but it continues to build to a cresendo of Columbus puissance. The IBUís are omnipresent. Strong bitter finish. Only for a true hop aficionado.

On tap at the brewpub. Auburn to amber in color. Aroma was nice, mostly being earthy and floral. Flavor of tingling hops; donít remember why I wrote that. Flowery citrus bitterness. Impressed with the flavor in this one.
