Our IPA has an Intense hop aroma and strong malt body, followed by a smooth clean finish. Pacific Northwest malted barley with hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create this IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors. The IPA is best served cool, not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma. The perfect beer for any day.

a lightish IPA as far as nose and body are concerned. Enough bitterness, but almost hoppy apa or session style otherwise. Sweet and citrusy, with some pine.

Can thanks to Brian! Pours clear orange with a long lasting large off-white head that leaves nice residual and lacing. Aroma is very strong and sharp, notes of pine cones and mushrooms along with musty perfume. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, sharp with some acidity. Lightish body. First IPA I have ever had that tasted like mushrooms, and I am not a fan at all.

Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm (backlog). Deep golden colour, small white foamy head. Aroma is citrus, fruits, some sweet malts and a bit of toffee. Flavour is pineapple, peach, some citrus, resin and quite sweet malts. Balanced and quite pleasant.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a big foamy white head that dissipated leaving nice messy lacing running here and there. The smell started off with a dry pine subjugated with an underscore of light dry citrus rind, somewhat bitter but sticky. The taste rounds out the bitterness of the pine with the dryness of the citrus. Its mainly sticky bitter with a light sweetness underneath and rolling into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs right where its supposed for an AIPA and allows itself to sit back letting the bitterness take the lead on the harshness of the tongue. Overall, its a nicely done AIPA that I could have again.

Canned from Capital Market. Lightly hazed medium/dark golden in color. A little dark sediment. Somewhat sweet citric hopped nose. Sweet and hoppy. Good citrus notes with a touch of breadiness to it. Drinkable IPA. A tad off in the flavor. Good bitterness.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Pours clear amber with a very large and very durable white head. Plenty of sticky lacing is left behind. The hop aroma is not particularly attractive but the flavor is good. Moderately bitter and hoppy for style.

Capa (2542) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
Orange with a white head. Aroma is powerful hops and nothing else. Pine and citrus with candied tropical fruits. Medium body. Comparatively, the flavor is a bit restrained in the hop arena but still a major player. Background malts show thru a little here, though. Clean, bitter. Good IPA.

12 oz can poured. Pours a golden orange color with a thin foam head. Sweet, juicy hops aroma. Interesting IPA here. Not an ordinary IPA by any means. Slightly thicker, oily body with a lot of citrus juice like flavor. A lot of hops thoughout with a barely funky citrus, piney finish. Overall I enjoyed this. Love the big hops. Good IPA.

10/21/14. Bottle. Solid IPA. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nice nose with a solid malt backbone. No over the top hop notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
