2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cascade, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out subtle floral hops and bland biscuity malt. Flavour brings out extremely bland floral hops and a big biscuity malt backbone. Very boring and barely passes off as a pale ale let alone an IPA. Drinkable but boring.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Light IPA aroma with a lingering malt backing. This was an average IPA. Could have used more hops for a nice Pac NW IPA.

Light pour, with floral hops countering mild caramel malts. It’s a nice standard, but not amazing in any way.
