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.

On tap at the source... Pours a hazy apple cider hue and topped with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of pale grain and citrus as well as grass... Flavors are crisp citrus with light bitter grass. Just shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Pretty standard but nicely executed. I’d drink it again.

after4ever (6089) - 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. It’s not quite a world-beater in its current form, but it’s pleasant and easy-drinking.

Herbal, citrus hops, and light biscuit aroma. Herbal ho flavor; pepper, a little fruit. Pretty dry biscuit-y malt flavor. Kind of a weird bitter aftertaste. (Seattle Airport)

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can:   Pale golden, light carbonation, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Citrusy nose, pith and peel, slight tea leaves.   Similar on the tongue, not overly bitter, faint citrus peel and pith.   Not all that bitter, unlike what the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tea leaves and citrus pith on the finish.   Smells a bit more vibrant than it comes across.   Decent little IPA tho, despite not being all that hoppy.

Copper pour, good lacing. Citrus aroma. Nice malt backbone balanced with a good hoppy flavor. A clean finish without a lot of bitterness.

Gold, slight haze, off white head. Aroma: grainy malt, piney-resiny hops. Flavor: grainy malt with some biscuity character, fairly thin bodied, very firm bitterness lingers in finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
