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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 A rather standard IPA. Very easy drinking. Medium body. Good citrus/caramel malt aroma. Unlike the raters before me, I did not see this as being all that bitter. There were more hops in the nose than on the palate. This would be a nice intorductory IPA, as it is not over the top with alcohol, hops, or malts.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Reddish Orange, big ecru head. I called it "ecru" because I’m tired of saying "beige". Anyway, Toasted white bread and some citrus in the aroma. Nicely earthy, smoky flavors at first, and seems to stay fairly earthy and smoky throughout, with a resiny finish. Pretty tasty stuff.

12oz bottle split with Ann. Big, biscuity IPA. Relatively clear tan-brown color. Very English in character in my opinion, about as full-bodied as a beer of 5.5% should be. Nice, mellow, and bitter. OK.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with André in Seattle. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with a thick and lumpy off-white head that has excellent retention and some spotty/sticky lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and lime zest, a touch of caramel malt, and some mild biscuit. Taste is medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, some orange zest, grapefruit juice and a touch of white pepper. Finish has a lingering mild bitterness that quickly kicks in and then fades slowly after the finish. The west coast caliper IPA category fits this brew very well.

355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 and a half finger white head that leaves some thin spotted lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some light caramel. Taste is grapefruit and piney hop bitterness with some light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium body with more than enough carbonation. Aroma is definitely better than the taste in this brew. Overall, a typical IPA, nothing really special.

jgb9348 (5684) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Slightly hazy deep copper and amber coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light earthy and citrusey hops, some good malt, a hint of caramel and a bit of floral notes. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty and earthy malt notes at first with a good english hoppy flavour and more of a pronounced hop feel and a chalkier/meatier malt flavour profile. Aftertaste shows nuts, caramel, a hint of bitterness and some more traditional West Coast IPA flavours, but not much - just a tiny hop bitterness. Overall, a decent and different IPA than I was expecting, but one worth trying if you are interested in an English style IPA or one that breaks the mold of a West Coast IPA. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Pear Delicatessen in Seattle, Washington on 08-February-2013 for US$2.00 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 28-February-2013.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Umber color with a taller fluffy off-white head. Aromas of crystal malt, wood and citrus. Caramel, paler malt, citric hops and touch of tropical fruit flavors. Touch of rust in the finish and into the linger. My last batch of IPA of the west coast is slightly less than awe inspiring.

Has a nice hop aroma. Flavor has a good hop bite. Sustains throughout. Quite bitter but overall pretty good.

kaser (5642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2012
Below average IPA. Pours nice orange with thick white head that lingers. Not much for aroma. Taste is boring, not too hoppy or much to it. Drank it fine but didn't enjoy it by any means ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cornfield (5570) - 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.
