COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an agressively hopped IPA that features the fruity Centennial and AMarillo varieties. Even massive dry hopping can't hide a rich, full bodied malt palate with toast and toffee notes. The finish is hoppily bitter and somewhat dry. This IPA demands respect.

GREAT Northwest IPA! Very balanced. Great flavor and aroma. Citrus upon fruit upon citrus. Excellent IBU backbone for the amount of flavor. Great lacing. VERY well-crafted beer!

ebowman (11) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2008
On tap at Palace Kitchen in Seattle, WA - Pours a beautiful amber color, almost orange in appearance. Aroma of grapefruit/citrus zest, with a flavor of nice, well-balanced fruity hops. This isn’t a super-hoppy IPA, but a very well-rounded beer that is very enjoyable to drink.

On tap at Trumpeter’s Ale House in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a deep amber-orange body with a nice creamy head. Perfect mesh of citrus floral hops and malt underpinning. Perfectly built IPA.

A deep amber color with a huge hop aroma and flavor. This was a great IPA The hops and malts where almost perfect. This was big hops and for those who like the flavor this was awesome. Great Beer....

Draught pint at Redbones on 11/15/06
Peachy-marigold tinged blonde beer, with some stronger amber and copper tints through the middle. Medium to medium-high clarity, obviously low filtration. White head is one-finger high, showing moderate retention, light lacing.
Heavily aspirinated aroma is sour and backed by heavily bitter hops. White grapefruit, lemon peel, sourdough bread, sweat and crushed aspirin make short work of the light honeyish malts. Not a very strong aroma, with the yeast adding a bland note. All citrus, light resin, not too encouraging...
Heavily sour/bitter twang in the mouth, with alpha acids running rampant, an aspirin and dough flavor of unmitigated yeast. Almost no malt backing and very little attempt at flavor hops. Absolutely unbalanced, fatiguing and crass. Perhaps some toasted malt notes, but no doubt they are just another aspect of the dryness and sour flavors. Would not have guessed amarillo, those don’t seem well-done here at all. Moderate carbonation, slightly aggressive at times. Yikes.

Flat beer, Had it at the Elk in Spokane and it used to be good. Now hops taste like they are last years rejects. Color was still good however I think that this beer was past its prime

Had this beer in Spokane, was flat and stale tasting. Hops were non existant and aftertaste was terrible I can’t believe that this beer is their flagship brand. I won’t try it again

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2006
On tap. Pours a bright orangey amber color with a thin white head on top. Aroma is mostly hops, citrus and grapefruit notes taking top with caramel/toffee malts giving the undertone. Flavor is mostly a blend of fruity hops making citrus and grapefruit come out just like in the aroma. Another good beer from Boundary Bay.

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Orange/amber with not much head. Fairly vacant nose, medium body with light carb. Fruity palate--orange, among other citrus delights. Purely bitter resin hop finish. Classic, delicious, beautifully done IPA.

Draught at the Parkway Tavern Day of IPAs. Pours a hazy orange amber with a scant white head. Light, almost watery body. Aromas of citrus and toffee. Starts sweet with oranges and malt, then grapefruit. Bitter dry finish.
