Clear golden with a lovely hop nose of farm fresh hops and floral tones. Nice hoppy leafy flavor with not much bitterness to speak of...like, English pale ale levels of bitterness, but with an American hop flavor. Nice earthy fresh leafy tones with some floral and light grapefruit hops.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a fairly clear amber color. Nose is quite floral with some citrus elements in there as well. Taste is lightly bitter, and is more refreshing than hoppy. Pretty decent drink all around.

Dark cloudy orange. Huge huge hop flavor. Sips full and bitter. It’s dry hopped so the aroma is big floral. As I drink it it becomes more palatable. Surprisingly balanced, floral hop flavor and nicely balanced body throughout. Prepare ye for the hops!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the West Seattle location.
Regular: Pours clear dark gold with a dense, lacy white head. Light citrus and toffee nose, lighter than their APA??? Medium light body, nearly still. Toffee and citrus taste with a lingering pine and earth finish.
Dry-hopped: Pours clear dark gold with a dense, lacy white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Medium light body, nearly still. Toffee and grapefruit taste with a lingering pine finish.
The regular version is reasonably good, but doesn’t take advantage of the hop characteristics I like most. The dry-hopped version is significantly better. Don’t know why the brewer considers both to be the same. (This rating is for the dry-hopped version. The regular gets 7/4/6/3/14.)
