MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins and their citrusy buds develop dank, grassy greenery within this India Pale Ale’s caramel malt profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy amber.
-The hops also share plenty of geraniol.
-The flavor profile could be tighter. There is a lot going on, but it is a whirlwind. Albeit, a nice whirlwind to parasail through.
-The soft natural carbonation increases drinkability.

On tap @ Manito, Spokane. Our final destination after hitting 12 breweries on the NW Ale Trail for TvM’s bachelor party. Medium orange, hazy, with a lasting off white head. Powdery citrus hops, mildly sweet crackery malts, long bitter finish.

very nice hop complexity in this beer that made it a step above the average IPA. Having it fresh at the source doesn’t hurt the hops either :)

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. I’ve had this beer from 500 breweries by now, but it’s always a pleasure to drink when it’s made this well with good fresh ingredients. No revelations here, but a worthy drinker.

Bottle:   Orangish in color, a bit hazy, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Dank hoppy aroma, and yeah, I mean dank.   Somewhat of a soft earthy/soily like hop start, not too bitter, moderate sweetness.   Seems oily but without being too biting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering hops, a bit citrusy at times.   Comes across as a solid example and is well made for the style.
