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.

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 (3483) - 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.

Think that there was very likely a clash going on with my tongue as this came after many others in a tasting - had a very harsh bite to the hops. Not to be confused with someone that doesn’t like aggressively hopped beers - SHARP. But, as I said, could easily have been in competition with other elements on the worn out tongue. Being that I’ve liked other Dick’s beers I presume that I would normally enjoy this.

Breathtakingly herbal, hoppy aroma. Grapefruit, citrus flavors. Bitter hops control this brew to the very end. Fresh and inviting. I have made the comment that super hoppy IPA’s sometimes burn me out, but not today! Nice beer. I am really becoming a fan of Dick’s brews.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Clear polished copper with a huge rocky head. Grassy and flowers in the aroma with a touch of oranges, medium bodied, light taste, stingy carbonation, starts and ends bitter. Although, not that bitter.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Pours a deep amber with a semi thick off-white head. Aroams of pine, banana and caramel. Flavors of pine, and a slight sweetness. A little poor example of the style.

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Dark yellow -- almost brownish -- with a lot of small floaties. Curious nose ... wholesome, earthy, kind of yeasty, and a little damp.Quite citrusy. Rather stark citric bite lurks up slowly in the cheeks. Bitterness seems to build everywhere and becomes a little too much.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Bronze amber, light shimmering gold. The light sticky head & lacing. The aroma is earthy & perfume with some caramel malt. The flavor is bitter sweet with more hops. Finishes tangy, citrusy & hoppy, dry alcohol mouthfeel.

As far as an IPA should look, this hits the mark very nice in my opinion. Nice amber color with a great white head that lasts for a while leaving moderate lacing. Aroma was slightly malty, with good hop tones and citrus finish. Taste is very bitter with a slight citrus taste and a good hop content. A little too bitter for my taste but very refreshing on a nice day.
