Draft from notes. Pours a clear amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus and resin hops, caramel malt sweetness, some toasted bread. The aroma was better than the flavor. Not very exciting.

Bubbly and hoppy. Some bite, lots of wheat/grass/flowers, earth toney things. Taste is roasted malt, orange peel, hops. Not bad

A decent average everyday IPA that won’t let you down. This one isn’t anything spectacular, but also not bad. Has some nice citrus and pine notes, finishes pretty clean.

Clear amber color. Floral piney hop on the aroma. Biscuity sweetness is tempered with a persistent floral hop flavor. Finishes with dry crisp bitter finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained light ivory, tiny bubbled head with extensive lacing over a clear light gold (SRM 4) body......nose is light pine, citrus peel from the hops, cereal from the malts, light bread from the yeast....taste is light cereal, minimal sweetness, bread from the yeast moderate pine, citrus tones from the hops, finishing with moderate bitterness.....mouth feel, body light of medium, no astringency, alcohol hidden, light acid on the finish. This is nicely balanced between the hop, mlt and yeast contributions. Unfortunately, they are all somewhat light considering the evolution of the style. The malts would benefit from the addition of caramel/crystal malts and the hops could use a greater charge of hops such as cascade, centennial, simcoe or citra. This is really more of an APA than an IPA. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6

From the archives: several bottles in Washington. Fruity, hoppy and a refreshing ipa.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a clear, bubbly, and light gold in color, white frothy head with good sticky lacing that doesn’t last. The smell had some floral, citrus, and some grassy pine. There were subdued malts come out as it warms. The taste had a mild citrus hop flavor, malts come out as it warms. The palate sat about a medium, somewhat sticky coating the mouth and tongue, sessionable, sticky finish, no aftertaste. Overall, this was a pretty good American IPA, maltier than most AIPA’s, but hey I’d come back to it.
