5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Golden, slight coppery hue, fairly clear otherwise, moderate white head, mild carbonation, nice lacing.   Hoppy on the nose, slight citrus rind.   More citrus rind on the tongue than the nose suggested.   Otherwise hoppy with a slight dank basement presense.   Finish has a little bit of earthiness to it.   Fairly well balanced.   A not so over the top bitter PNW IPA.   Respectable!

TimE (4142) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2014
Light amber color. Fairly perfumy nose with mandarin oranges, pineapples and grapefruit. Very hoppy nose. The mouth is well balanced with a good pale malt backbone and a touch of caramel. Moderately hoppy aggressive finish. Decent stuff.

PatrickH (2) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 24, 2011 does not count
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.

michaelinwa (638) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2012
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.

Dogbrick (9609) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
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.

On tap at Hudson. Pours orange/blond mix. Smell is citrus, fruit, and pine. Taste is pine hop, bitter and floral, mellow and easy drinking. Good IPA.
