COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Continuing our summer sun series, Spotless is named to honor our sun that has been spotless for over a year. This aggressive IPA has a rich golden color with a fruity finish. The beer is well hopped to 70 with Willamette and Zeus hops, lending the beer a bright bitterness and a rich hop flavor. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6.5% IBU 70

22oz. Bottle. Pours pale but clear and very lively. The aroma is somewhat fruity and full of body; bitterness is midium to heavy. Overall; very satisfying and tasty.

IndianaRed (2186) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Bottle, at Brewforia, pours a hazy dingy orange with a small sandy colored head. Faint fruity aroma. Peaches and apples. Dry lively crisp palatte. Not sure how this qualifia as an IPA. The bitterness is there...though I canít find all 70 IBUs that Full Sail claims. ECM more lacking is the hop flavor. Not un pleasent, just not hoppy. I continue to be inderwelmed by their "sun" series in general.

19Ei8hty (1134) - Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Intensely astringent. Light biscuity malt profile with some soft sweet caramel notes. Leaf and grass are pervasive and the alcohol is more pronounced than it should be. Slightly soapy and sour. Not very good, Full Sail - or rather ; just your style. Meh-tastic.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Appearance: Pours a bright clear copper amber with a frothy tan film of foam.

Aroma: Big grassy hops and slight lemon and catty notes as well.

Taste: That signature metallic bitter taste from Full Sail, I believe it to be the yeast, grassy hops, a little bit of honey like malt and a tad bit of citrus. Finishes very bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and fairly carbonated.

Overall: Itís big, itís bitter, but itís not my favorite varieties of hops. Iíd love to hear the locals weigh in on this beer.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22 oz. bomber. Sharp, somewhat astringent aroma. Nice shiny copper color. Underactive head. Kind of a sweet and sour type brew that seems to be attempting a balance of opposing forces. It doesnít quite make it. The hops dominate and not in the best of ways. Thereís not enough behind the hops to carry their strange presence in this beer. The Spot series just gets weirder with each entry.

on tap at college inn in seattle, wa. typical ipa color and body but has a real potent aroma of grapefruit and other citrus hops. Really enjoyed this.

BelgianBeerGal (3016) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Local 22oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper colour with a short white head and spotty lacing. Nice, gentle aroma of mandarin oranges, grass, and citrusy northwest hops. Definitely not an overpowering flavour initially. Very light hops and some citrus notes but once the back of your tongue gets splashed the bitterness starts. Relatively long finish with lingering bitter notes. Okay for me but not one of my favorites.
