Tap @ Tangletown, WA: Pours a golden amber color, slightly cloudy, big white head, smallish bubbles. Very hoppy aroma, sweet, but not too hoppy. Slight bitter taste, very sweet. Nutty. Slight acidic aftertaste.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2006
One of my favorite drinking IPAís in the PNW. Very smooth with medium hops and a decent balance. Nothing special, but good.

Had at the Celtic Bayou a couple months ago. This was tasty, but not quite what I expected. Bitter hoppiness was prominent throughout. I like their regular Immortal better. Not like me to say that about a dry hopped IPA.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 22, 2006
Poured from a bomber. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with an average foamy off white head that laced and sustained. Aroma was of lighter citrus (orange), caramel. Nice balanced aroma but a little light. Flavor of grapefruit, bitter hops, some malty sweetness to balance.

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Draught Small white rim; clear orange-amber beer. Slightly woody & smokey caramel malt, enlightened by good USA hops. Good hoppy flavours, more IPA than pale ale, Iíd say, even when thereís sweetess detectable underneath. Lipsmacking sweet-hoppy residy makes up the MF, rather well bodied. One of Elysianís classics - and rightly so.

OldMrCrow (2212) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 On tap Coopers IPA fest í06 in Seattle. This one pours a hazy amber yellow , lighter-colored than most IPAs, with a modest head.

The aroma brings lots of tea leaf and floral hops. The flavor explodes with floral dry-hoppedness and hints of whisky. This is intensely hoppy, but it is not the sort strong oil citrus you often get in a c-hop PacNW IPA, and the intensity in the finish is relatively shortlived. The beer falls short in that thereís no malt presence to back up all of that delicious hop flavor. The palate is a bit watery on the front, though it fills out nicely through the sip.

All in all, this is an appealing but ultimately flawed beer. Itís good, but could be better. That big dryhop flavor sure is nice, though....

Bomber 8/29/06 I need to lower my expectations when I come to this one. At $2.50 a bomber itís a good deal on a perfectly nice beer, but Iím always disappointed when I compare my current experience to the 4.0 that I gave it when I was young and impressionable (i.e., last year). Itís a nice enough IPA, but really nothing better. So far as the hops go, itís relatively mild for the PacNW, pine and orange , strong on the caramel malt though not massively sweet.

Draft 2/6/06: On tap at Atlas in Seattle. Pours a soft orange with a reasonable head. The aroma is relatively subdued; some piney hops and hint of sugary malt, but thatís about it. The flavor is mouth-puckering pine resin hops, with substantial backing from sweet brown-sugar malts, though the beer itself is not a sweet IPA in the least. The finish is dry, bits of citrus mixed in with the same full-bodied but not overwhelming piney bitterness. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily, but not unpleasantly so; unfortunately, this glass was badly overcarbonated, to the point of being prickly.

Original rating 11/1/05: From the bottle. Pours a golden amber with an ample foamy head. A well-crafted --- even if somewhat straightforward --- Pacific Northwest IPA. The aroma is pine and grapefruit and orange peel; the mouthfeel and flavor are not at all harsh, with a big cascade hop taste without being overwhelming in the least. Thereís some sweetness here, as in honey, not as in syrup. The finish is gentle compared to some of the more brash IPAs, but satisfying. Definitely worth repeating. 7/4/8/4/17

omhper (21889) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2006 Draught at the brewpub. Clear deep golden. Aroma of mango and grapefruit. Dry with clean but bold mouthfeel. There are juicy hops, but it ends with ashy bitterness. A good, solid beer, but nothing that stands out amongst the IPAs in the PNW:

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2006
Golden colour. Big hoppy aroma, some cascade, amarillo with fresh grassy resiny flavour as well. Aroma of grapefruit, grass/hay. Sweet malts, but low complexity. Clean yeast, resiny bitterness. Lingering bitterness.
Earlier Rating: 9/11/2005 Total Score: 3.4
Tap at GCBF. Very yeasty with large chunks suspended in it. Light brown/amber colour. Creamy tan head. Nice strong fresh resiny hop aroma. Flavour is of woodsy fresh hops, resin, pine, cedar, light caramel, a bit of toffee. Light yeastiness and a touch of fruit. I suspect this would be better without all the yeasty notes. Lighter bitterness than the aroma suggests.
