Solid beer. On tap at Double Musky, Girdwood, AK. Terrific honey floral aroma with warmth. Nice clear gold color. Good balance and clean finish. Classic West Coast IPA without venturing into hop bomb territory. No complaints.

On tap at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. Colour...clear amber with a moderately thick off white head. Nose...citrusy with a lean towards the grapefruity side. Palate...moderate CO2, a quick shot of grapefruit rind and pith and then a bit of malt that balances things out quite nicely. There’s some biscuit here and some marmalade as well. Generally a well balanced IPA.

Draft pour at Taphouse. IPA week. Pours a nice copper color with a very faint hop aroma. Ton of lacing. Floral hop flavor with a small hint of pepper spice. Solid tasting IPA, and definitely a little different. Enjoying this beer

On tap at Collins a while back. Light amber with big fluffy off white head. Very nice citrus aroma and taste. Great fresh hop taste. Just a bit fbitter in the finish; balanced quite well. Love the hops in this. Not sweet at all. Head stayed fluffy the whole way down.
