3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ivar’s, Pier 54, Seattle
Had first day in Seattle with my girlfriend, her father, and her sister while waiting for the Bainbridge Island ferry. Pours lush amber with a nice head. Aroma is very hoppy for an APA, with nice streams of flora and grapfruit. Very close to an IPA, with a definite grapefruit presence accentuated by the hops but nicely rounded out by a malty sweetness. Velvety palate. Great beer; beautiful view from my seat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Ernest Loves Agnes, 11/2/15.
The best appearance, by far, of the three I had that night (Seahops, Kulshan, this). Obviously unfiltered, yet bright, with a copper-golden body and a very well-retained white head.
This seemed to have been a very popular beer around town and for good reason. It’s assertively hoppy, yet not obnoxiously bitter. The malt balanced nicely with plentiful toasted grain/sourdough as well as honey and light caramel. Nothing fancy on the hops, just a pretty straightforward citrus character with light pine accents. Very light hint of tropical fruit in the nose. Towards the end of the glass, the malt wore on me a bit too much, adding too much toasted character, which exacerbated the hop acidity, somewhat unbalancing the beer flavorwise. The mouthfeel was spectacular, however, with tight, appropriate carbonation and a malty, supple texture.
