A highly approachable IPA with lots of hop flavor and aroma, mild bitterness, and a dry finish. Dosed late in the boil, as well as dry-hopped, this India Pale Ale focuses not on the bitterness in the finish, but instead on the flavor and aroma of the hops.

On tap @ Iron Horse. Pours clear bright orange copper with thin white head. Aroma is muted citrus and crisp pine hops. Taste is clean sweet crystal malt, somewhat light-bodied for the style, the nice bitter hops - mild earthy dark citrus and sharp pine notes dominate. Decent IPA, not spectacular but no major flaws either.

Bottle: Picked this up at a gas station driving through Ellensburg. Thin body for an IPA. I get the sense that they tried tooo hard to make this hoppy. It just seems to be missing something in the overall picture. Ok.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw body. The aroma is honey and pine, a bit faint overall. The taste is malty start, mild bitter middle and a longer pine bitter finish. The texture is crisp. Enjoyable.

This beer has become my "go to" beer. I often tire of the same beer but this one has kept my interest over and over.

Smooth and balanced IPA with not too much alcohol. Not bitter and no after taste. Very drinkable with slight floral flavor. Gooood!

Found a date on the bottle that says: "04.1614." This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice hazy orange color with a slight transparency about it allowing for some light carbonation to be seen rising. The lacing is fairly thick and shows some nice looking rings. The smell showcases a nice citrus to pine aroma and lets in a fairly nice sweet maltiness as it warms. The taste had a nice bittersweetness all the way through letting the citrus and piney hops combine wonderfully with the malts. The aftertaste was the typical AIPA of sorts of letting a great bittersweet pine and citrus combine pretty good. There was a nice long dry bittersweet finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium on the body and still carried a good harshness to assault my mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA well worthy of having again.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a hazy copper color. Nose has some floral and citrus hop notes to it, as well as a slight hint of pepper. Taste is a little bitter with just a bit of spiciness to it. OK.

Bomber. Iron Horse IPA. Grapefruit, lemon and pine. A hint of caramel in the background. Light bitter finish with a touch of oranges.
