the best name for a beer i have heard in a while. Good flavour with a nice finish but is lacking a distinct taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smell of citrus, pine and melon. Smell of malt as well. Pours golden, with last off-white head, clear.
Tastes as I would imagine and IPA, grapefruit peel, citrus notes, somewhat piney, the bitterness and sweetness are balanced well, you notice them but neither is out is sync. Medium body, moderate carbonation and dry finish. Top notch.
For me, this was the first IPA I had that was perfectly balanced, like ying and yang, the hops are countered perfectly with the malt and it is executed perfectly. Why not 5/5? It is missing a wow factor. Buy this is what IPAs should taste like.
I have had in bottle that wasn't as good as this one, but in the 5 years I have been drinking this beer, one bad batch is bound to get in there.

Translucent golden red, medium sized head, served cold. Pungent aroma consisting of malt, citrus, and hops. Delectable taste. Initially creamy smooth, but as the flavour progresses, grassy notes of citrus and strong hops become apparent with a bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample on tap at Craft Beer Market (Vancouver). Pours clear honey blond with a thick white head. Some lacing. Aroma: hops, tropical fruits, pine. Taste: smooth bitterness. A tad malty, but just enough. Hints of fruits (pineapple) and honey. Medium bodied. Refreshing. Very good IPA.

22oz Bottle at Peckinpah BBQ Van B.C
The smell coming from this bottle after it being placed on the table is just insane. Poured into the glass provided and wow. The medium yet SOLID white head just explodes with sweet sticky pine, citrus hemp and petunias.
Incredibly sticky citrus and pine bitterness leads onto a very subtle biscuit malt that’s hardly noticeable under all the hops. Solid carbonation.
Dangerously easy to drink and so rewarding flavour wise. Fat Tug easily earns the label of my favorite IPA to date.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours clear, too clear for an unpasteurized IPA. Thick head, hooker lace. Perhaps one of my all time favourite bouquets. Sweet fruit and citrus, piney undertones. I must say, this beer has changed since it was first introduced. Its not as chewy as it once was and the hop blast is nowhere near the same. That being said, it is still delicious and a fine example of a Northwest IPA. Fantastic! Who said accountants cant be fun?

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
For an unfiltered beer, this is pretty damned clear. Pours a dark copper with a thin white head. Aromas of passion fruit and sweet citrus. Tastes of pine, resin, ripe citrus rind and sweet passion fruit. I love this beer, even more so on tap.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from anon, thanks a lot H.! Pours a nice clear copper with a thin white head that doesn’t hold too good but still leave fine lacing. Nose indeed hoppy, aaaahhh! This smells like summer to me. Aroma is of citrusy but not quite grapefruity hops and perfume. Intense but really well made. Taste is bitter and malty, more bitter than malty. Flavors are of again citrus, fresh grains and caramel. Bitterness is medium-strong and lingers for a good time. Body is on the lighter side, carbonation soft. I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I do, yum!

The thing I love about this beer is its balance. It’s well hopped but not over the top bitter. Enough body and acidity to make for a wonderful mouth feel. Beautiful taste and aroma - pine and grapefruit come to mind. My absolute go to beer.
