On tap at Salmon Creek Brewery in Vancouver, WA.
Pint arrived a very cloudy, murky even deep orange and a huge pillowy light tan head. Nice bright fresh citrusy hop aroma. Flavor is the classic combo of plenty of IBUs but also tons of fresh hop flavor. Quite bitter actually Full. Fairly heavy palate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very slight hop scents, with maybe a tiny hint of citrus. Sort of a dark golden, a little bit of cloudiness. The flavor has very strong malt characteristics, with an after taste of some hops. Not a hoppy IPA at all

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.
