2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy brown with little head to speak of. Nose is resiny with citric notes. Body is softly carbonated with a a solid malt backing. Hop character is earthy with fruity characters subdued. Pretty even throughout the entire swallow; no flavor takes control. I would have liked a more hop forward aroma and perhaps something more memorable in the finish. Just fades away. Ok IPA.

Tap at brewpub. Hazy bronze color with a big head that quickly dissipates. Very sweet and strong citrus aroma, almost like a lemon lime soda. Strong hop taste that is similar to the aroma, though maybe a little more flowery. This could use more of a malt backbone.

Draught. Pours golden, semi-cloudy with a nice head. The aroma is heavy with generous grapefruit. I get a little mary jane and some caramel in the scent as well. The body is medium with loads and loads of hops right up front, smacking my palate. Deep citrus and pine dry delight the tongue while some hints of crackers and caramel provide balance. This is a very, very nice American styled IPA. Excellent flexing of the PNW hops on this one.

WOW. This was so much more than i had expected. With the discription i was given, I thought this was going to be a better version of the pale ale. I was wrong. Upon tasting, the first thing that came to mind is that this is no APA, this is an IPA. And a damn good one at that. Pours out a nice coppery color with a small beige head. aroma has a big hop note to it with a nice malt and citrus balance. Flavor is much the same with a nice resiny hop finish to it. I really like this beer. Nice job guys!
