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.

Tried this one because I like their Grand Cru, Imperial Red, ad Scottish ales, and because my buddy dislikes this beer. Since we often disagree, I thought it might have potential. I was wrong. In an age of wonderfully interesting IPAs, this one comes off as lacking in aroma, taste, and palate. Like so many IPAs that i do not like, this one was all about, and only about, bitterness. Boring. Will not be giving this one another chance.

Bottle. Pours a nice orange with a medium head and aromas of lemony citrus and a little grassy herbal edge. Flavor is similar. Itís a little underpowered for an IPA in my book, but is still a very nice and clean beer.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bomber. Pours a solid orange highlighted golden color with lots of active carbonation and massive sea foam head. The aromatic notes are predominately barley malt and yeast with a little bit of apricot and citrus. The taste has a much more noticeable hops presence with primarily herbal and resiny flavors at the front along with some orange blossom honey and dried pineapple at the end. Thereís also a subtle bready malt and yeast component in the background. The body has moderate carbonation with a clean, bitter finish and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The overall flavor needs a little more hops bitterness and caramel malt to balance out the fruity sweetness.

Chalsk (1090) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2011
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours an amber orange color with an off-white foam head. An aroma of grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Sweet caramel taste with a smooth hop hit. Resiny bite on backend.

GT2 (9177) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Tap at Pacific Standard. The pour is a hazy, poo orange with no head and no lace. Probably the ugliest IPA Iíve ever seen. The aroma is all stale hoppy with cheese and rotting berries. Taste is dry, soapy, muddy, just on the grasping edge of IPA. Sucked dick.

cmonster (997) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle served in a tulip. Excellent pour. Dark orange-brown with a light beige head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is not great. Soy sauce with some grassy hop bitterness, and a little skunk. Salty, bitter flavor. Medium body, soy again on the sticky middle, and an astringent finish. This is either a bad bottle or a bad IPA. Canít recommend.
