COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the winter sun hangs low in our sky, some 93 million miles away, solar filaments, giant arcs of cool, dense plasma explode from its surface. Filament Winter IPA celebrates this cosmic wonder. Pale, Munich and Caramel malts create a rich malt character with a honey-like flavor. A bounty of Crystal, Chinook and Centennial hops combine to lend spicy, citrus hop notes.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2013
22oz bottled on 12/09/13 - I havenít been very excited about anything Iíve tasted from Ecliptic so far so Iím hoping this bottle would change that. Like most of Ecliptic beers Filament drinks really malty and sweet with spicy bitter hops in the finish. This beer was bottled two days ago! The fresh aroma and flavors of honeycrisp apples, rosemary, pepper, and deep citrus are pleasant. Filament is a well made IPA but in a flooded market of hoppy beers I would not buy this again.

BillKismet (3659) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Amber body with a fluffy, off-white head. Nose of green hop, with a dankness to it. The body too has a greenness, dankness, and something of a vegetal quality to it. Donít get to much of the advertised citrusyness, but itís a solid, earthy IPA.

NachlamSie (3108) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Bomber from Mile High. This is a really good looking beer, to start things off. The body is a rich amber color and very clear with a persistent white head and thick lacing on the goblet. Lots of hops in the aroma impart an earthy, piney character. The palate is fairly hefty and well carbonated. They certainly were heavy handed with the crystal malt, but were just as generous with the hops for balance. Strong back-end bitterness hits the mouth with a sweet caramel flavor and notes of cedar, pine, and a little citrus. Iím glad this one attenuated well, it keeps the caramel malt character in check. This is not a hop-bomb, but rather a big, bold, well-balanced IPA. I like.

Bomber poured a clear tarnished copper with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, citrus, perfume and light pine. Palate was light to !edium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness, light pine and a hint of perfume with a smooth dry moderately bitter finish.

andrewje41 (2040) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2015
22 oz bottle shared by Alex. Thanks! Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a lasting fizz head. Sweet caramel like aroma. Flavor is a very nice balance of hops and toasty malts. Ideal winter IPA. Very tasty.

Brentv (569) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2015
From bomber. Amber pour with a light haziness and a thick sticky white head. Aroma has some pine and citrus. Taste is pine and bitterness, with some nice malts in behind that get better as the beer warms. Medium sticky mouthfeel.

Theydon_Bois (14996) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 08/11/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malts, orange, straw, light grapefruit, earthy hop notes. Taste comprises madarin, straw, orange pith, light bread dough, caramel malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semui drying close. Ok easy drinker but lacks any hop presence and depth.

liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2014
22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and citrusy, with hints of graham cracker. Taste/Palate: sweet and crisp; finish is long and bitter. Slightly on the bitter side of a perfect hop/malt balance, but still a glorious beer!

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Poured from a 22. Appearance is the standard IPA profile. Aroma has a piney, spruce smell to it. Flavor is hoppy then spicy with a bitter finish.

Jow (3037) - New York, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at home continuing Oregon themed memorial day. Pours golden amber with fine beige head. Nose is light hops and caramel. Tastes of light piney hops, caramel, earthy bitterness, tea, some pepperiness, light honey sweetness. Standard yet solid enough IPA not sure all that wintery itís 80 degrees out and this is plenty enjoyable.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle:   Looks good, smells like a moderately hopped example.   Clean bitter start, smooth, soft pith and a touch of citrus peel on the back.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Moderate to strong hop bitterness on the backside.   Almost could use a touch more sweetness and malt strength to balance it out.   As is, would be a hop lovers dream despite it smelling a bit average, it packs a hoppy punch.   Decent offering, fairly solid.
