COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, hoppy Northwest IPA features Centennial, Cascade and Columbus hops that impart strong citrus hop flavors and aromas. Our Northwest IPA is balanced nicely with the use of crystal and victory malt. We finished this fine IPA with a heavy dose of dry hopping to lock in the all the intense flavors and aromas. This IPA is sure to satisfy the hop heads of the Northwest, so sit back and enjoy.

No head. Brownish-orange. Aroma is pine and dog food. No malt. Hot spiciness and hops. Bitter and takes a bit of getting used to.

OldMrCrow (1906) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2006 From the bottle. Pours a clear copper with a limited head. Aroma is one-dimensional: hops with perhaps a hint of yeast. The taste is, frankly, quite unpleasant - and this coming from someone whose favorite style is the IPA. I get an initial taste of salty, burnt malt followed by an unbalanced blast of hops that are more rank than bitter. Palate is watery. A considerable disappointment. Perhaps I got a bad bottle? 4/3/3/2/7=1.9

Rerate 10/21/06 Not a great IPA but not nearly as bad as I rated this one last time. I’m assuming there was something wrong with that bottle, and have adjusted my ratings to ignore that previous experience.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear topaz with a large white head that diminished mostly. Sweet fruity malt aroma with hints of caramel and plenty of floral and citrus hop notes. Citrus and piney hops dominate the flavor with some of the caramel malt evident as well. Nice grapefruit peel finish. Light to medium body and creamy carbonation. A very pleasant IPA

Cornfield (5512) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2005
This is a good hophead’s IPA. Deep orange in color with a frothy white head, it begins quietly with an aroma of sweet flowers and oranges. When it hits the mouth, the first thing you taste is the pleasant caramel malt. Briefly. The hops explode in the mouth in a riotous profusion of hop bitterness that soon causes the lips to tingle as well. It’s got a nice long bitter finish that leaves the mouth watering for more. I’ve got to try this brewery’s IIPA, too.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 9, 2005
This is a mighty tasty IPA! Beer pours a transparent copper color with a tight and fluffy head. Aroma has sweet notes mixed with grassy oranges. Taste abounds with hops - tingy and zesty, bitter and DRY. Lemon peel and grass with a slight orange character. An interesting thing about this beer is the aroma is sweet and the flavor is profoundly bitter - it lingers nicely on the tongue. I like this beer - poo poo to those who brand this one dimensional!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Clear amber body with a frothy white head. The aroma was citrus peel, hops, grass. Light to medium bodied, gentle carbonation, smooth texture. The flavor was refreshing and rewarding. This was a good IPA.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Very oily and resinous body. Some light two row malt hints with a big high alpha bitterness. Clean and floral nose with no defects. The chinook is very prominent. Smewhat oily on the finish with good lingering bitterness.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Pours golden brown with a huge white head. Citric fresh hop aroma with salty undertones. Harsh hop bitterness and flavor. Totally lacking malt balance. A dissapointing IPA from a brewery I usually like.

IndianaRed (2555) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2004 Bottle Pours a light medium golden amber witha very large off-white fluffy head that eventually settled down leaving decent lacing. Aroma is very strong herbal, hops and grapefruit rind. Very strong hops and floral flavor. More citrus here too. Feel is good and hefty and the finish is a lingering pucker/bite.
