COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale ale hopped to the extreme! This beer starts out as a nice pale ale until it reaches the kettle. Throughout the course of the 90 minute boil four massive hop additions are made which transform this beer into a hop-head's dream come true. Both Chinook and Tomahawk hops from the Yakima valley are added in extreme quantities for the maximum bitterness, flavor and aroma.

Bottled, from Spokane, WA. Clear dark amber, small head. Aroma of pine and pear. Sweet with some caramel biulding a rounded mid-sized, rather dense body. Long perfumy, resiny bitterness. The hop’s comes across a little bit harsh.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 2, 2010
12 oz bottle. Cloudy amber/orange with lots of yeast sediment and a big thick fluffy beige head. Grapefruit aroma with some other citrus and mild caramel. Bitter hop flavor up front with some light sweetness and a dry bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Nice dry sessionable IPA, the yeast kind of muddied the flavors though.

From a bottle. A good IPA - nice bitter finish. Nothing particularly outstanding, but very drinkable.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
12oz 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 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.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Pours clear dark orange with a thick frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange peel. Taste is sprucey, resin on the finish. Good flavor and balance I think.

brenn79 (1430) - Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2010
12 oz. bottle- Pours darker golden with a thin head, aroma is pine and hops and some citrus. The flavor is a somewhat heavy, not malty IPA, very hoppy and the alcohol really comes through. An average IPA, so far not too impressed with this brewery.

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
12 oz bottle, decent hop aroma but the flavor is really flat and just plain bitter and hop water.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Hazy amber with an off white head and spotty lace. Aroma is spicy & grainy. Grapefruit, corn, zesty citrus and floral notes. Bitter dry finish
