1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a can. One of my first experiences with a northwest IPA. Not a fan of this one at all. Good hop aroma but the taste was more earthy and dull, with a bitterness that left my palate dry. Not what I am looking for when I drink a IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can dated 04/01/2015.
Aroma is fairly hoppy with a strong Northwest hop character. Lots of grapefruit and pine resin. Light, pale malt notes. Some light fruit esters.
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale yellow gold with a small, thin, white head that recedes to a thin film where it lingers. Moderate lacing and medium length legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with a moderate, pale malt note. Medium light cracker and biscuit notes. Moderate hop notes of a pine resin and grapefruit. Medium bitterness with a fairly dry finish. Some light stone fruit esters.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an alright beer. Lots of classic Northwest hop character with a dry, pale malt character. Rather bitter, but not over the top.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pint can from Jamie. Pours a clear golden with a small whit head ghat leaves nice lacing. Nose is of diesel, onions, resin. Taste is pretty sweet and moderately bitter (although it feels like a lot less because of all that sugar) with flavors of caramel, fruits and resin. Body is medium and carbonation light. It is too heavy for my liking and where are the tropical fruits and/or bursting hoppy aromas and flavors? Just OK, I wouldn’t ask for it again.
