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 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Chuck’s, from notes. Pale, clear pour with minimal head. Aroma: bread, toast -- the typical toasty flavor profile I seem to get frequently from these folks. Caramel, bread, some pine. I’d say it’s "balanced," but I’d be using that as a euphemism for malt-driven. Taste: lots of toast and caramel. Pine bitterness lasts, but plays second fiddle to the toast/malt aspect. Reminds me of a bitter kolsch, actually. Medium body, dry finish.

On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of hop oils, citrus, pine. Flavor of hop oils, pine, citrus, grassy hops, caramel malt. Quite hoppy/oily, very drinkable too.

Enjoyed IPA at the tap house. Ultra pine aroma and taste. The 6.9% ABV is concealed well with the slight citrus flavors. Worth enjoying again.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black IPA. Little nose from the mug. A mild malt sweetness and gentle hops, finishes with more piney hops. Easy drinking but not interesting IPA

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at malt & vine just down the road from the brewery. very fresh citrus, pine, and funk hops but with a solid fresh grain aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet with bitterness in the background. there is something a bit stale or metallic i don’t love. The hop character continues more or less the same. Solid.

Very sweet tasting IPA. A little light on the body. Hides the 6.8 alcohol very well. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

Draught at Ölrepubliken Göteborg. Pours dark almost black with an off white head. Aroma of chocolate. Ful body but not enough Hops and bitterness for an IPA in my taste.

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