UPDATED: JUN 17, 2003 Classic northwest style with the citrus notes of the local hops standing out. But this IPA’s hops are more subdued than some others, this one also has a fairly malty flavor that shows up

Medium Amber color with a slight haze and decent head. Hops and citrus balanced well with sweetness and a bite in the finish. A very decent IPA, not the best but certainly worthy of stocking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange body, medium light tan head. Aroma is sweet hoppy (grapefruit and piney). Taste is very hoppy, pine and grapefruit. Some sweetness, and it finishes very bitter.

This is a nice,soft,mellow ale;I could mistake this for a pale. Tawny-golden colored.Not a lot of aroma,the hops are subtle yet well balanced with the malt.Smooth mouthfeel with minimum bitter finish.Very drinkable.These could probably go down in quantity on a hot summer day.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a grassy IPA aroma but a nice mango/citrusy/orange peel aroma, light bronz in color with a thin white head, hoppy start ending in bitterness, slight malt presence, slight grapefruity kick, not as well balanced as some, but not too bad...closer to an american pale than an IPA (IMO)
