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 majestyís 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 youíve been thirsty for.

fiulijn (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport)
Hazy golden color with creamy head. The hop aroma is well present, fruity and lightly animal. Lean body; the malt flavor is good and delicate, a good background for the powerful hopping as it doesnít hide it. good fruit and manure character, quite fresh.
Nice beer, well drinkable.

brokensail (15444) - Dublin, 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.

bhensonb (13731) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 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. Thereís a little hop bite, and it is bitter. Still the floral is the main thing. Itís a very hoppy beer that hasnít NW harshness. Nice.

slowrunner77 (9401) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Well balanced with caramel and a touch of bready malt, but definitely hop forward and fresh. 55/38 at RB and I canít 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 itís really hitting the spot. Citrus and pine flavors in there too. Drinks big for 6.5%

douglas88 (8090) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2015
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.

after4ever (7400) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Draft at SB. Pours a hazy orange-ish medium amber with a dense and creamy off-white head that hangs around for a while. Bright grapefruity nose, both sweet and a bit piercing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel with grapefruit notes showing. Gets a bit dry at the end, but not acetic or twangy at all. This is another horse in a much-contested race; the semi-resiny, semi-fruity IPA market is a tough one in this area and these guys deserve a shot at the title. Itís not quite a world-beater in its current form, but itís pleasant and easy-drinking.
