COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When it was discovered that hops not only added bitterness and aroma to beer, but made it last longer too, British brewers created the IPA style to survive the long voyage to India, where her majesty’s thirsty troops awaited unspoiled ale. Twister Creek IPA combines the finest Pacific Northwest and British hops atop a foundation malty enough to balance its 71 IBUs. High octane, full-flavored, well-balanced. This is the beer you’ve been thirsty for.

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.

On tap at GABBF. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big citrus nose, light roast. The flavor is mostly fresh lemons, oranges, spicy, light floral notes, biscuit base. Solid.

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.

Poured from can into pint glass. Great aroma is detected right when pouring begins. Delicious citrus smell. Spicy hop hits the taste buds. Balanced nicely. Sessionable with a smooth finish.

Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Hazy light blonde. Thin head. Fresh limey, overripe fruit character. Light bready pale malt character, and finishing with a touch of bready/tannic.

"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%

brokensail (12277) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 7, 2014
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.
