COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? Itís no secret that this is what we excel at. Weíve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Can. Canned 7.28 and drank 8.7. The look is clear, golden to orange in color, thinner off white head. The smell is obviously hops, pine, some dankness, a touch of fruit, grass, and earthy florals. The taste is a decided bitterness, pine, fruits, biting, and good. You can almost taste yourself chewing the hops.

Santa dropped this canned beauty off at my doorstep the other day. Pours a somewhat darkish orange color, cloudy appearance with a fluffy white head. Flora, citrus aroma. Taste of up front citrus smash, bittering grapefruit, and a dry finish. Very easy drinking. Great beer!

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 16 oz can shared by durwoodx and huhzubendah, thanks guys! The beer pours a beautiful clear, I mean absolutely clear, light golden orange with a lasting white foam head that slowly diminishes to a faint bubbly wisp and leaves no lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, bitter hops, a certain dank quality, and light pine notes. Flavor is bitter and complex: pineapple, grapefruit, pine resin, and an overall balanced and understated bitterness that allows this quenching beer to be easy drinking. Alcohol is well masked, medium bodied, and moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet and tangy orange juice, a delicious beer.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Can, dated 7/20...thanks burcmode! Copper tinted golden with loose white head. More onion and garlic than citrus faint caramel and crackery malt character. Taste is balanced, more so than the nose suggests. Bitter piney garlic up front, cracker malt mid, with pepper hop bittering finish that lingers a bit. Well done, but admittedly too much garlic/onion for me to freak out over this beer.

Draft at the brewery. Nice white head. Golden-amber color thatís spot on for an IPA. Great hoppy aroma that betrays a little more sweetness than the beer actually has. Taste is mind-blowing. Dank, piney hops with sone tropical fruit and the perfect bitterness. The balance in this IPA is nothing short of perfection. Best IPA Iíve ever had.

Huge thanks to Darrell for the hookup! The beer is light golden orange and mostly clear with an inch of pure white head. Aromas of dank, resinous hops, pine, orange and grapefruit. Grapefruit and pine in the flavor with a general citrusy quality. Tangy and juicy. Soft carbonation, finishing with moderate bitterness and a hint of alcohol warmth. East to drink and delicious.

Deep copper color, thick body. Aromas and taste of a light DIPA. It was super fresh and very nice.

Had it out of a tall boy can. Deelicious!! It pours copper clear and lovely. Piny in aroma, slight taste of malt, and a hint of 4-20.

Pours a transparent golden color with a thick, foamy, lasting off-white head. Aroma is deeply resinous, piney, citrus hops. Flavor is dank, piney, slightly grassy, a little grapefruit, and some moderate tropical sweetness. Very bitter finish. Great. (Thanks Matt for bringing this from Albuquerque to Seattle!)

Consistent, hoppy, beautiful aroma. An Albuquerque resident and this has become my local beer of choice. Perfect American IPA for my palette.
