Very well balanced. Didn't expect the malt. Very happy with this IPA. Worth the very long drive to Ray's Cafe in Seattle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Malt and Vine. Pours dark golden with thin head. Aroma is light hops and bready malts. Taste is crisp citrus hops with balanced caramel toasted malts. Both the hops and malt stick with you through the finish. Maybe the fact that you can only get this on draft makes this better? Either way, one of the top 2 or 3 Washington IPAs around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that evaporates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of fresh citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, citrus and caramel malt. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Solid IPA. Deep gold hue with a lasting, lofty head and great lace. Crisp and rich on the tongue. Toasty malts with a subtle caramel sweetness and bread-dough aromas. Snappy hops from start to finish. Notes of grass, pine and flower petals. Citrus in the aftertaste (grapefruit, lemon). Healthy but balanced bitterness. Bold IPA, but it also has finesse.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Well balanced, though with a solid hop presence. Bitterness is under control on this beer, so it manages to be interesting but yet doesn’t get tiresome with simple bitterness with is a problem with many IPAs. I think this is solid, and one of my favorites even if it doesn’t knock your socks off.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold, medium size head. Aroma of malt and hop, mostly citrus, some floral and resinous as well though. Taste is lightly bitter, malty. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet pale malts, some dough, caramel comes through for sure, nice juicy citrus and piney hops. Pours golden amber, nice head, sheets of lace all that bullshit. Flavors start sweet with pale malts and caramel, finsih with juicy fruity hops grapefruit, floral notes and pine. Well balanced great hop flavor. Drink this shit and choose the path where no one goes, they ask nooo quarterrrrr!

This is quintessential of many WA IPAs, not overly hopped or above 6.5% ABV. The result is a more drinkable session IPA. A slight woodgrain taste adds character. Fun little spot--order a UFO pizza while there.
