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 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had a tall pint of this beer in the SEA airport. The beer had a classic deep amber color with a large, foamy-creamy white head with pretty good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured pine, citrus, and grainy hops with a slight touch of malt.
The taste was mostly bitter with pine and lighter citrus hops and a touch of grain for a slight sour effect, but also had a very light creamy sweet element. It was a slightly creamy IPA but had above average carbonation with a dry body and finish.

Piney and herbal aroma and flavor. Nice for a change of pace, but also not the first type of IPA I’d grab. Medium bodied with moderate bitterness. 22 from Tavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey amber hue, with a sudsy layer of off white head foam that diminished to a bubbly ring & film, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank, with some Barleywine-ish malt sweetness, esters as pit fruit, and a touch of resin. A bit less than medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste included some moderate earthy & citrusy bitterness. An okay IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Heavy caramel nose, piney hop, grapefruit, all quite dirty and earthy. Hazy dark amber/orange color. Caramel , weeds, and citrus. It goes quite malty in mid palate, and has strong bitter tracks. Medium-heavy body. Nice. Tasty, but rather heavy handed and maybe too earthy. Tastes and feels more like a DIPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours a clear copper with a thick slightly tan head that takes forever to dissipate and leaves abundant lacing, best looking appearance I’ve ever seen. Aroma is of rust, cherries, and floral notes. Flavor is fine, nothing special here, although it does hit the tongue a bit hard and there is some medicinal taste. Very little flavor on the swallow although the aftertaste is lasting and the bitterness level is medium.

On draft at Duke’s Chowder in Seattle: short, but powerful hop punch from start to finish. Woody aroma with floral undertones. Good for ipa lovers.
