3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. brown twist off bottle. I hate twist offs, but whatcha gonna do? Poured out a bright orange color, with a fast fading, thin white head. Didn't leave a decent lacing either. Aromas are of caramel malts, seafoam, and Pacific coast hops. Centennial and Nugget mostly in this beer. This beer would be sooo much better if they didn't use that damned Ringwood yeast. It has no place in an American IPA, IMHO. Tastes a little better than it smells. Caramel in the foreground, and pale malts collide with the hops in a controlled train wreck sort of a way. It finished crisp, but slightly buttery, indicating diacetyl leftover from the brewing process. This beer could be much, much better than it is, IF they changed their yeast to an American strain.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours an orangish yellow with a frothy dishwater like white head. Lacing is clingy and thick.   Initial aroma is of piney hops with some floral notes. However, initial taste lacks the ZING suggested by the aroma. Seems rather mild for a "dry hopped IPA" as the bottle states. Mouthfeel is light but enjoyable. Near the end there is a bit of a maltiness, perhaps to balance with the small bit of hoppiness. While it might be an easy drinking IPA and well suited for what I like (not overly hoppy), it could use a few more IBUs.

Light straw and maze color under latte froth head (bottle). Had this one at beer fest in MT and was not terribly impressed. Forgettable IPA: hoppy, but unfortunately balanced. Palate/mouthfeel is nice and full, sort of mealy but bright citrus refreshes. Fine IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper appearance, decent head faded. Nice upfront aroma of grapefruit as the Cascades introduce themselves. Grapefruit is also the dominant flavor note, with a tiny bit of toffee and biscuit to balance. Tiny bit of medicinal touch creeps in at the very end once it is warm. Could have been more full bodied, but all in all an enjoyable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clean amber slightly red, not much head to speak of. Lots of floral hops in the nose, some malt. Not too much hops in the flavors, more malty. Smooth IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at the brewpub in Seattle. Excellent IPA in the true west coast style. Has a light copper color appearance, sticky off-white head with good lacing. Has a good mouth-numbing grapefruit flavor that I crave for every so often. Stays strong to the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Standard amber color with typical head and lacing. Clean dry hopped aroma, very floral. Good balance with a sweet dry and bitter finish. Not the best IPA but metter than most macro ipas. I'm spoiled with one of the IPAs here at a local brewpub.
