Seattle, Wa - on tap at The Fisherman Restaurant. Sparkling, medium gold pour, white head, good lacing. Fresh spruce aroma, a hint of toffee. Solid grapefruit bitterness with some nutty notes in the back end. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid IPA.

12 ounce can thanks to 5000. Really nice hoppy nose. Well balanced IPA with some malt to it. Creamy. Nice IPA for everyday drinking. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color, creamy head. Very nice malt aroma, malt mash. Nice malt flavor; the bitterness is high, the hop gives just a light citrusy touch.
Don’t expect much of a West Coast style beer, just a good old IPA.

Drinkable. Not overly bitter. Little aroma. :/. You're average IPA. Would recommend as a starter IPA.

Bottle: Mild aroma is citrus, florals, and caramel. Somewhat subdued. Very balances flavor does not have a standout ingrediant. Nice amount of citrus, floral, and caramel. Very smooth blend and matches the aroma straight up. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a golden orange with a one-finger white head. Smell is dank, with big grass, pine, and fresh hops. Taste is bitter from start to finish, with hints of citrus and tangerine. Body is thin with high carbonation, but good lacing. Have to admit that it smells better than it tastes. Not much going on and pretty straightforward, but great for a hot summer day. Not bad.
