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.

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.

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.

Murky gold with a quickly dissipating head. Big piny hop smell. Bitter front but mellows out real smooth. Light floral leftover taste is nice.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Super clear, light orange and copper coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall just off-white head with almost no movement at all. Aroma of pine, light hops, resin, flowers and a hint of perfumey hops - not much malt or alcohol here at all. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong perfumey and floral hop flavours with not much malt, some light fruity sweetness and a subdued bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows a little of the hops, but in an odd way - just perfume and flowers, some light malt and not much else - this was fairly weak. Overall, a very sub-standard IPA, especially by PNW standards! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (Pearl), Oregon on 27-April-2013 for US$4.29 sampled at home in Washington on 04-September-2013.
