Bottled. Clear reddish amber. Citric nose. Medium sweet and medium bodied with rpunded mouthfeel. Nice hop presence, but it gets syrupy as you go.The ginish is lightly resiny. A fairly one-dimensional beer without much to discern it from other brewers IPA.

Draught at Naked City, Seattle
Beautiful amber color. Very nice aroma, fruity, apricot jam and Citra hops. Lean body, with good mix of flavors: malt, caramel, jam, mild resins. The bitterness is not too high; the final is drier.
Fresh and very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Lightly hazed golden ale with a small, bubbly, white head. The nose is of honey, toffee, resin and pine. Full-bodied and velvety with bristly carbonation. Leans only slightly toward the bitter side of balance. Malty and sweet up front, but hopped sufficiently to place it firmly within the genre of PNW IPA. Finishes tannic, tongue-numbing and fairly dry. Thanks go out to giarcsr for sending this bottle my way!
