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.

perhaps the most bitter tasting beer I’ve ever had. pallate is oily (presumably from the hops), the nose is sharp but floral. we are talking serious hops here. unlike some other extreme IPA’s I’ve had - it doesn’t have the malt / alchohol to back it up - so the experience is kind off-balance. predominant flavor seems to be citrus / grapefruit. if you are a -serious- hophead you might enjoy this stuff - for me it’s too much.

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

An enjoyable IPA with a fruity oder and good hoppieness. Ever so bitter, which is what gets me going. Would drink again. Pours medium amber w/ smallish head.

jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - MAY 21, 2004
12oz bottle, ~50 degrees, brewed in Washington. Pours a light orange/yellow with a fluffy and firm white head. Very attractive. The head is almost merangue like as it recedes- makes wierd little bumps. Aroma is sharply grassy, slightly lemony, a tad soapy, a bit antiseptic. Not bad. Flavor is suprisingly malty, quite bitter but not harsh, has a bit of tangy hop flavor around the middle, but not much. Maybe a bit lacking in the flavor department for me. It is pleasent and refreshing though, good for a hot-ass day like today. It’s more of a NW pale ale than an IPA, aside from the sharp bitterness maybe.

On draft at Dicks Brewing Company. This is a good IPA. Decent amber color with ok off-white head. Has a good hop flavor and as it lingers you get a bit of the malt. Very drinkable and could be an everyday IPA. Unfortunately, it’s not distributed where I live.

Great IPA not overpowering in hops. Well balanced. Would buy again and again.

Flower power!, doughy. Dry. Bitter fruit skin. Alive and healthy aura. White half inch head. If you like dry bitter bready beer, you’d like this one. It seems to be missing a a little more sweetness that i look for in an IPA.

A nice session IPA if you will. Grapefruit and citrus zest dominate an orange/copper flavored brew. Good head retention. Well balanced with enough hop bite to satisfy, but not too much alcohol to enjoy repeatedly.

Tried this at a buddy’s house and was told it was a new recipe. Love the new packaging. I can’t really remember the last time I had this beer, but whatever they did to the recipe... well done.
