3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Pacific Standard. Haha itís pretty funny but I have here in my notes that this has all the notes and character of a DIPA minus the overly sweet body. Well lo and behold. The pour is clear, full orange with really not much of a head. The aroma is tropical fruits, apricots, peach. Taste is peppery hoppy, kumquat, and apricot flavor similar to DIPA without too much sugary body. Dry, soapy mouthfeel. Lots of fresh, dried orange fruits in the body. In between an IPA and DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler filled at Big Z and consumed two days later. Pours a hazy dull gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of fresh Cascade hops that is filled with flowers, light spice, grapefruit, and fresh pine. The flavor is malt with a bit of a bready characteristic followed by some citrusy hops. Mild-moderate bitterness that lingers briefly beyond the swallow. Solid pale ale.

On tap, tried this fresh out of the tanks. Poured a murky brown with slight white head. Taste was quite good....very hoppy, somewhat nutty as well. Not a ton of carbonation in it at the time, probably because it was so new. Quite good...just a solid pale ale...Iíd love to have this again.
