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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Brouwer’s. Golden-orange pour with white foam. Kind of catty and some green melon on the nose. A bit toasty. A lot of apple as well...meh. Some bread, lemon, pine, and herbs. All over the place on this one. Flavor is a bit more "bitter caramel water" than I’d like. That said, it does have some nice citric qualities and a decent fruit character. Lightly herbal and woody on the finish. Fairly bitter. Not great, but okay, I guess.

On tap at Apex, pours a cloudy pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of dry herbally, skunky hops, and some dry funky biscuity malts. Flavour brings out strong piney and herbal hops, a bit of pot and some funky biscuity malts. A dry, thirst-quenching and highly drinkable blonde IPA. Extremely well-made.
