3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This brew has a very distinctive tap handle but unfortunately the beer itself is nothing special. It’s very cloudy amber w/ a creamy white head. It has a nice and fruity hop flavor w/ a touch of sweetness and some toasty caramel-like malt and a firm, earthy bitterness in the finish. It has a creamy texture and is rather low in carbonation. I would probably call this more or a strong amber than an IPA due to the maltiness but that is not, strictly speaking, a bad thing.

Can from Total Wine in Lynnwood, WA. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is quite floral. Med body or nearly. Flavor is floral hop over a decent caramel backbone. There’s a little hop bite, and it is bitter. Still the floral is the main thing. It’s a very hoppy beer that hasn’t NW harshness. Nice.

12 Oz can pour. Pours a light, cloudy golden color with an immediate blast of hops on the aroma. You can smell the hops in this from across the room. Mild on the bitterness, and delicious hop flavor all throughout. Solid IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Well balanced with caramel and a touch of bready malt, but definitely hop forward and fresh. 55/38 at RB and I can’t for the life of me see why. This bee used that variety of hop that while sweet, has a slight onion and garlic twang to it, and it’s really hitting the spot. Citrus and pine flavors in there too. Drinks big for 6.5%

On tap @ Alaska Lodge (SEA-TAC). Golden colored beer with white foam. Nose is kind of citrusy, but a weird wet bread, musty malt aroma. Some pine, earth, and flowers as well. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. A lot of bread and toasted grain. Some orange, a hint of grapefruit, and earthy bitterness. Lightly floral and piney.
