Another fine IPA to add to the list of favorites! I still think I favored Rogue’s Brutal Bitter, (not nessasarily an IPA), but this was a very smooth beer with great upfront hoppiness, and a thich aftertaste that was neither too bitter or sweet.

Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe Hopfest ’06. Clear amber with a scant head that quickly becomes a ring of foam. Minimal aroma, but some oranges, grass and tea can be found. Tastes of fruit and leather. A bit watery in places, with a dry finish. Not sure what went wrong here, but this is not my favorite IPA by a long shot. Hope I’re rating the right beer here. Looks like it has been retired for several years, which would explain the taste.

Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe Hopfest ’06. **NOTE**: This review applies to the "Liberty" DH version. Not sure if I have the right parent beer, honestly. Gold, maybe a little bit of ruby, with a tiny little head and less lace. Bready yeasty nose. Palate’s all sweet malt and raspberries. Poor palate. Gonna get blamed for all kinds of wrongs. To be avoided.

Beautiful bronze/brass beer with a perfect head. Slight chinook/cascade hop aroma and flavor with a small, but constant and unrefined bitterness. This is a rather light bodied IPA. While easy drinking, it is unexceptional and does not distinguish itself among northwest IPA’s.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Very Good Ipa, reddish in color, grapefruit/cirus aroma with floral hints, citrus flavor really comes through, great example of chinook and cascade working together! Great bitterness, flavor and aroma, perfectly hopped ale!
