Very hoppy orange citrusy aroma. Pours orange with a fluffy head. Taste isnt super bitter and a bit sweet. Very enjoyable beer. Bit of a weird finish though

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and rated on 2-07-2013. This beer has a small white head that was mostly lasting, spotty amounts of lacing, transparent body, very fizzy and lively carbonation, and a yellow-golden hue. The aroma is malty, floral, citrus, grapefruit and mildly earthy. The taste is mildly earthy, lightly bitter malty, caramel, floral, grapefruit, citrus hops, and has a very dry finish. The palate is lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied IPA. All-in-all, this is a quaffable IPA, but not very hoppy for an IPA and what hops there were, they tasted rather weak.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Solid, piney IPA with a nice malty middle. Slight breadiness mentioned by others doesn’t detract. It’s murky. I don’t care.
Wow. People really hate the East Side, huh?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours warm gold with a white head. Aroma is floral, light fruit/citrus, leafy hops, and caramel. Taste is floral, toast, peppery, yeast. Light bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Pretty nicely balanced, I’d like it to be a little more assertive with the hop profile but good overall.

Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Hazy orange amber color with creamy head. And easy IPA with good bitterness level but showing some age, the hop having lost some fresh power. It’s soft and it almost had some vanilla character.
Pleasant but easy.
