2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Seattle Tap Room. Amber in color with a sticky white head. Not very nice. Just a lot of lemon and grass with a strong caramel malt profile. At least it smells okay and decently citrusy, but the flavor is just not all that good. Lots of toffee and caramel sweetness with a rather pronounced tea bitterness and astringency. Slight apricot and peach in there, too. A few redeeming qualities, but overall unpleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Safeco field, nice amber beer, little head in the clear solo. At the risk of sounding mundane, this I just another excellent west coast IPA. Aroma of spruce and citrus, taste spruce, juicy citrus, a little pale malt. Palate smooth and rich, carbonation fresh but not too bright. Pretty good!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bomber into a pint glass.
L: a nice dark gold, very clear, diminishing head.
S: great nose. Big distinct grapefruit and pine notes working in harmony.
T: any citrus is dumbed down in the taste, the piney hop takes front stage.
F: a very bitter finish, but very drinkable if IBUs are your thing. It coats the tongue a tad.
O: I’m not sure. I feel a bit short changed after that wonderful aroma. Taste wise, there’s nothing to set this apart from the pack. Would drink again though.
