Really citrusy on the nose. Lots of bright hops. The types of hops used make the Tate quite juicy. Really love this fresh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft. Golden amber pour, with an off white head. Citrus, some sweet malt, mild caramel, bitter orange rind, grapefruit, and slightly metallic. Not bad, but pretty standard IPA.

Served on tap. Pours typical IPA color. Smells leafy and crackery. Tastes like every brewpub IPA you’ve ever had. Not all that hoppy, and what hoppiness there is manifests in one-note bitterness and vegetal plantiness. Crackery malt backbone. Meh

An excellent hoppy APA, but poured with little to no head. Minimal lacing, but still a nice fresh flavor or hops and citrus. Very drinkable.

Great beer. I keep a keg at the house. Brilliant hop profile. Very floral. You have to be careful. A lot of tap houses don't maintain their lines well. Kills the floral hop flavor. It's all bitter. Still beats most other styles of beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Sandpoint Grill.
Pours a deep copper with a foamy, lingering head. Pine dominates the aroma, a bit of soft fruit in there too. The flavor is totally old school, Amarillo notwithstanding. It’s really nice as old school goes, tons of pine and a bit of citrus peel, but super trad. Bitter oils are fairly heavy and linger long after the meal. On one hand, this is better than I expected from Georgetown. On the other, at 98th percentile with only 71 ratings, it’s way over-rated. I just don’t get the crazy love this one is receiving.

On tap at Fall City Roadhouse in Fall City, WA. Aroma is citrusy and a bit piney, with hints of resin. Long bitter finish, with sweetness throughout. A perfect IPA. Wonderful balance between the generous hop profile and malt backbone. I would drink this everyday.

Poured a hazy orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of biscuit, candied orange, floral notes and pink grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of bread, orange zest, grapefruit and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Perhaps the best IPA I have ever had! Lots of hops, smooth, not too bitter, just right.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Smith. Clear amber pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop bouquet. Taste follows suit. Big hoppy bitterness, but still enough of a malt backbone to keep it honest. Average body and mouthfeel. A hint of tropical fruit hop notes.
