Pretty good; nothing over the top or exceptional. Aroma is mostly pine with some citrus notes. Taste is pine with some hidden hop character. Finish is a bit bitter with a great malt backbone to back up the hops. Nice job.

From Nate as part of a Christmas gift sampler. Clear amber golden with a smallish head. A pine and citrus is not big but is pretty nice. First sip is quite bitter. Spicy bitterness more than grapefruit. But grapefruit is in here and grows with warming. There is some herbal and resin aspect to them that is akin to unripened fruit. Biscuits. I would like to see more complexity in the hops and less IBUs. Its close to being very good.

Slightly roasty, dry with a bitter hops finish. A bit deeper and darker than I expected.

Highly recommended for those looking for a good IPA

Bottle gift from SJ . Body was a tad thin. Nice notes of citrus hop, pine and caramel malts. Sweet finish. Not bad.

Pours. Clear golden color with a thick head. Light hoppy mild aroma. Flavor is a bit harsh, but I think it’s the cascade hops. Still fairly good.
