This classic Northwest IPA is characterized by its BIG hop flavor. Chinook, Cascade, Willamette and Centennial hops are packed into the kettle to balance and compliment the Vienna and Munich malts that we use in the mash.

Flat Tail brewery, Draft: This is my favorite Flat Tail beer. Good color, strong hop aroma. Crisp. Very drinkable and safe...especially coming from Flat Tail which brews a LOT of different style of beers. You never know what you are going to get.

Tap at Flat Tail. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma is strong of resinous hops, very piney,, grapefruit. Taste is bitter, good malt backbone that cuts through the hops. Overall, nice.

4 hops, 2 malts. It’s a tried and true recipe often found here in the Pacific Northwest. They name some of the hops after salmon breeds.

krumbum (670) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Murky gold with a quickly dissipating head. Big piny hop smell. Bitter front but mellows out real smooth. Light floral leftover taste is nice.

pdx77 (1477) - Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
On draught at Flat Tail. Clear golden color. Aroma is pine forest and light malt. Taste is pine, very tart citrus, spice, and a hint of malt. A little too bitter for my tastes but enjoy the pine.

Davidrbly (11) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Cloudy apricot color. Foam is off-white and fairly persistent. Aroma is citrus and faint pine. Body is not light, but refreshing. A good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GT2 (9273) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
651mL thanks to brainlair! Pours clear golden with moderate white foam. Nice lace. Nose is a bit wort oxidized with apple, juice box, browning apple slices. Taste is richer, thick butterscotch, richer citrus peel balance. Solid, but probably oxidized during wort transfer.

Sarlacc83 (1342) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Tap at brewery. A: Semi clear gold with a whisp of white head. N: Gigantic pine mixed with grapefruit. Peppercorn, and biscuit base. Hints of earth and damp leaves. Rounded out by citrus. T: Hefty bitterness, very little sweetness. M: Dry medium body. Bite of alcohol. Fuzzy carbonation. O: Potent concoction and one which is both desiccating and unrestrained. I like a bit less pine bite in my IPA, but this hits the style well.
