One of those beers where, not being overwhelmed, I wanted to try more from them. Luckily, Margaret got me another. I love my kids.

On tap at the brewery. Clear dark yellow pour with a white head. Nice tropical fruit hop highlights with dankness of pine and resin hop lowlights . Very well balanced. Good body and mouthfeel. Nice malty backbone. Impressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber with beige head, nice sharp, biting hops in the aroma and taste. IPAs are a dime a dozen in the NW, but this one is a head of the pack.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 oz bottle, bottled on 4/7/14. Pours clear golden yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is piney hops with a little fruit and some stinky tar.
The flavor is sweet bready malt with a little fruit and a big piney, grassy, tarry harsh bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice IPA. Not my favorite flavor profile.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at The Beer Junction, Seattle
Blond color with creamy head. The aroma is a bit cheesy and yeasty, with some hops. Malt flavor, but with a tiring character; strong bitterness, the hops are mostly resiny, some bitter oranges but the fruitiness overall is low.
A bit messy, mostly the aroma should be tuned.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Collins Pub. Pours bright medium golden with thin lacy white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt with big earthy hops - sharply herbal and floral. Taste is clean, medium sweet caramel malt with very light body. Hops are crisp, punchy, and earthy, though not big in a traditional sense. Light floral hop notes on the finish. Not a typical DIPA, but a different hop blend that gives some interesting flavors. And, it’s Crux, quality overall is top notch.
