3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Brave Horse Tavern in Seattle. Pours a medium amber, decent head retention. There’s a definite lemony aroma that is mixed with grapefruit and somewhat of an unripe blackberry. Flavor is of an indistinct citrus, medium caramel malt sweetness, and bitter citrus peel. Finishes with a bit of a lasting carryover of bitterness; maybe not a good thing in this case. Bitterness feels very one-dimensional and carries a bit too long. An above average IPA in a world of above-average IPAs.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Cascade, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very subtle, with floral hops, a bit of dental clinic odour, and some mustiness. Flavour brings out dry floral hops, earthiness, and a metallic tinge. Very weak and muted, with some off-flavours. Not very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. A new entry. A clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet fruity nose with some of that Amarillo sticky liquor. Big lemon flavor from the Sorachi, a bit of bitterness, some orange peel, earthy mellow malt base. Easygoing and flavorful. Nice.
