3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Hazy dark amber pour with a medium fluffy ivory white head that recedes slowly. Sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of floral hops, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character that has floral and citrus notes, plus some bready malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a citrusy aftertaste. Above average overall.

Stately bronze bodied and crowned with a creamy, airy beige foam. Fresh floral hop aroma--the hop pellet dust and hop resins is almost palpable. Strong chinook, and perhaps centennial and crystal hop flavors. Really thick hoppy component--very pelletized body. Powerful.

Bomber. Pours a solid orange and gold color with an inch of beige foam. Strong floral citrus and pine resin in the aroma as well as some tropical fruit and orange peel around the edges. The taste leads off with potent resiny hops bitterness, grapefruit and tangerine notes. After that thereís some pine, citrus rind and a faintly sweet malt presence. Mouthfeel is smooth and adequately carbonated with a dry, intensely bitter finish. Pine cone juice at its finest.

22. Pours a hazy burnished dark amber with a dense and pillowy whitish head and lots of eggy lace. Mild piney nose--clean and present, but not the most forceful aromatics around. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and pine on the mid palate. Iíve had this beer from 500 breweries by now, but itís always a pleasure to drink when itís made this well with good fresh ingredients. No revelations here, but a worthy drinker.

Part of a blind tasting with Earth Thirst and Alesmith IPA. Pours between yellow and orange, a two finger head. Smell is light fruity, floral and a bit grassy. Tastes like a citrus rind, with some earthy backbone. Smooth and hoppy, pretty nice ipa.

Orange, with a fluffy head. Lovely citrus and pine balance on the nose, and the flavor follows. Juicy, just a bit of booze, with a sharply bitter finish. This one is really, really nice - a wonderful go-to, if distribution kicks up.

Tap @ Brewforia: Semi-cloudy copper with a white head. Aroma of pine, juniper and all around great NW IPA elements. Flavors are floral with junipers and a great bitter aftertaste. A good offering.
