Very nice hop, but a little hard to finnish a full pitcher! very strong body, leaving a thick foam on the side of the glass. A somewhat sweet aftertaste, that lasts a little long, but is admirably preferable to the sour aftertaste of other IPA’s.

Rating #1955 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 55 Clear golden amber pour with a decent white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, lemon rind. Decent bitterness, nice citrusy sweet note. Pleasant.

On tap in Chelan. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head and good lacing. Smells of some floral and malt. Heavy on the malt. Tangy and sweet. Bitterness is mild. Aftertaste is decent. This is not exactly what I remember of this beer from a bottle before, so maybe this keg is old.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can poured into keg shaped glass. Canned on 7/22, consumed on 8/29. Pour is dark honey, clear. Aroma is surprisingly not as hoppy as I would have predicted and not as hoppy as the previous few IPAs. The aroma has a strong malt character with hops (as opposed to the other way around). Some liquid malt and some woodsy malts with nondescript mildly bitter hops. Flavor lowers the malt presence and amps the hop presence. Bitterness is mild-moderate, lightly cookie crust malts, and again sharp and clean hops but not a particular description I can give (maybe grapefruit, not really cedar). Lingering light hop bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Safeway-Ephrata. Based on the score was expecting to be overwhelmed, but that’s not the case. Fairly mild brew (sampled after Iron Horse Gary, to be fair), nothing much stands out. Some caramel malts, but not much in the way of hop presence. Solid beer, but weak IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ice cold pour from bomber hits the sweet spot on this sizzling sunny day. Not the most adventurous IPA -- brisk, bitter, medium hoppy, nothing overly citrus -- but good middle of the road drinker.
