COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong IPA is a hop loverís dream. The smooth but intense bitterness comes mostly from Columbus and Northern Brewer hops. Late addition Cascade hops and dry hopping with Cascade and Amarillo hops help give this beer a complex character and aroma. This IPA is delicately balanced with a medium maltiness that compliments without detracting from your hoppy experience.

On tap at Anthonyís in Richland, WA. Very nice golden color, not much of a head, but produced bubbles until the glass was empty. Aroma was hops, pine resin, citrus. Pretty strong aroma. The taste followed in kind - very hoppy, minimal malt character, nice bitterness that was not overwhelming. Clean and pleasant after taste, cleanses the palate nicely. I rather liked this beer and would have it again.

Draft pour at wing central. Pours a dark yellow with a really nice hop aroma. This is a really good IPA, and Iím a little suprised for some reason. Solid hop front flavor. Really nice floral hop finish. So drinkable. Awesome IPA here.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is nicely hoppy, with floral and resin elements coming off it for me. Taste is moderately bitter, light and refreshing. Liked it a lot better than I thought I would.

Bottle from Whole Foods on Westlake, Seattle
Hazy deep blond color with small head. Itís a fresh and lean IPA, very drinkable, with good balance; the hops are more fruity than resiny, with an evident pineapple character.

Reid (1873) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
22 oz bottle from Rothís Sunnyslope Market in S. Salem. $4.79 This has a new label compared to the page and is 6.7% alc. Pours a nice slightly hazy orange colour with a large ,thick and frothy off white head. Nice aromas, of resiny/piney hop along side good bold caramel malt profiles. Quite balanced in the taste.. malts and hops combine well but the pine driven hop comes though in the end to dominate. Godd clean palate well carbonated and slightly dry in the end..long lasting hop aftertaste. Nice PNW IPA..not bad at all.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma has some bread and pine. The flavor is a bit more complex, but the beer tastes aged. get some pine and bread notes as well as some grass and medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

cmonster (968) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottled at 6.7% ABV. Hazy orange with a good-sized head, good retention and lace. Caramel, doughy malts with soft citrus and resiny hops on the nose. Decently balanced if not a little light on bitterness throughout.
