2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
hazy lemon, heavy lacing in thin bubbled white head. Light grass and vomit, faint dirty wheat but oppressive off notes. Fizzy carbonation limits profile, strained and dry grass with tons of bitter grain at front, light airy sweetness mid before dry grass an gum end, bitterness lingering with faint diacetyl after warmth

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.
