On tap @ Black Raven. Clear light amber pour with a minimal head leaving a coarse lace. Grassy hops nose which gives way to a tart grapefruit beginning.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery on 8-4-10. A very solid IPA. Pours a clear deep gold with a nice white head on top. Big hop aroma and firm bitterness. Slightly biscuit/toasty malt character in the background without being sweet or too heavy. Crisp and dry with a medium body. Finish is bitter and hoppy but does not linger leaving you wanting another sip. Very nice example of an American/West Coast IPA.

Washington Brewers Festival 2010 – Kenmore, WA
Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hoppy aroma with a good earth and fruity aromas lingering. Nice malt flavor with that spice and hops presence to make this a wonderful brew. The hops where floral with some fruit qualities. A tasty little treat for the day.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
From Skyview, as Inauguration IPA. A good ipa. The flavor and aroma are right, with citrus and bitter hops, but what is there is far too light. A lack of palate really hurts this beer. Gold color.
