4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled on 08.21.14.
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 10.07.14.
A: Grapefruit and pineapple.
A: 3 1/2 finger head with an easy pour. See through golden orange body.
T: Pineapple dominates. Honey, graham cracker, grapefruit, and orange are subtle.
P: Creamy. Crisp on the back end. Light to medium mouthfeel.
O: This one is very juicy. Itís a pineapple and honey bomb. Itís fantastic on its own, but itís also interesting to try when Fremont puts it through a Randall.

Tap @ Sharpís - near Seatac: Clear gold color with a small white fizzy head. Wonderful hop aroma of citrus and floral notes. Hoppy flavor but not too over the top bitter. Floral and citrus notes noted in flavor as well with a bitter hop trailer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2014 Bottle. Strong American hop nose showing the apricot and orange marmalade signature of Cascade and Centennial, but also showing an unpleasant brined lemon / catty pet urine quality that I find most often in Simcoe and Citra. Grassy and raw mixed with lemon peel and green onion sharpness. Malt seemingly transparent in the nose. Sweat / burnt butter aroma suggest diacetyl. Medium body, sweet and juicy and oily in the mouth with relatively low bitterness. Candy-like dried pineapple slices and a dose of garlic butter in the finish. It almost works, but lower the sweetness, find some fresher hops and check for diacetyl.

(Can) Nice IPA. Not too overly-bitter (although people who donít like IPAs wonít think so). Nice slight malt sweetness and good perfumy hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Northlake Tavern. Golden with white head. Going by memory, but thought it was well balanced, a little more malty than most IPAís mild bitter ness. Easy drinking
