COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bold and hoppy golden ale, the house IPA recipe employs the technique of "first wort hopping" to infuse this NW classic with all manner of hop goodness.

kathouse (1107) - Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Dry hopped version at the brewery. Medium amber with a thick white foam. Citrus and floral hop aroma. Light caramel body supports the bitterness well. Dry finish cleans up well.

onceblind (4660) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
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.

maxwelldeux (3809) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2014
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.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2013
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!

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2009
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.)

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Golden pour with a decent head and stick lace. Soft floral aroma, biscuits and lightly sweet malty nose. Soft biscuity malt flavors with a spicy peppery, floral hop finish. Dry lingering finish. A good PNW IPA.

AmEricanbrew (6014) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Clear amber with a fleeting head. Mild piney hop smell. Medium body. Decent bitter hop flavors, unbalanced though, with only a trace of malty sweetness.
