Light hop aroma, sweet and tangy, but not overwhelming. Nice fluffy white head. Great light copper color. The bubbles are fantastic every time you take a swig from the pint. Nice English style malts with grapefruity hops with a strong bite at the finish. The body is firm and solid. A well made brew. Thanks to Andre’ for the Seattle goodness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle Pours a hazy peach/amber color with a small off white head and thin but even lacing. Aromas are fruity and swet for hops and quite soft and calm. Flavors are hops that again have a warm fruity and nutty flavor. Some grapefruit peel and bread notes as well. Feel is moderate and the aftertaste is quite bitter. Not my favorite but pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright copper colored with a frothy, white well-lacing head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some dry earthy caramel malt underneath, but not too assertive. Starts with a pleasant sugary caramel sweetness turning slightly more bitter and piney toward the crisp grapefruit finish. A pleasant, but not exceptional IPA. Thanks Indiana_Red.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color, a clear tangerine shade, with a solid 1/2" white of creamy foam.
Aroma: big, fat, major league pine, plus grapefruit, peach, more citrus, nice and powerful, but oh, so, delectable, fresh and fuzzy, I spent some time with this one.
Taste: hop-hop-hoppy entry on the palate, smooth, round, warm and wonderful, it makes love to the tongue, pleasures it completely!
Terribly tasty, this, a fantastic flood of fruity flavor (stop me from alliterating, someone, please!) Body’s more medium, but finish is in full effect, and those hops never quite quit their work on the tastebuds. A very nice IPA that definitely belongs somewhere in my list of favorites.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium sized white head, good retention with a nice amount of lace. Clear copper hued brew. Nose of pine. fruit, melon and a dash of honey. Medium bodied, resiny, groovy hop palate ! Piney, grapefruit and citrus notes with a mildly sweet malt backdrop. A solid IPA that almost steps into the DIPA category, IMHO. Very nice! Thanks to HeRftYDrF for this most excellent brew!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy, medium amber color with a larger off white head. Nice hoppy citris aroma and tastes. Some pine in the aroma. Oranges in the taste. Lightly sweet with a solid bitter finish. Body was a little thin/watery - other than that, a good IPA.

Flavor is sweet yet tangy. smooth on your tongue & tasty.
