This big, bold copper-colored ale showcases Munich & Crystal malts to create a big supportive body on which we layer our favorite Washington hops. Chinook & Cascade provide citrus and piney flavors, while Northern Brewer adds a hint of mint. Dry-hopping with Cascade and Columbus increases the beer’s hoppy aromas. Malt, hops and yeast-derived fruitiness combine to create our most complex offering.

Alengrin (4340) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle at GBBF. Thick, yellowish, creamy, lacing, frothy and very stable head over a deep orange blonde, almost amberish beer, darker and more red than average for the style - red IPA? Aroma of strawberry, lots of tangelo, pine resin, grapefruit peel, passionfruit, green tea, mango, caramel, toasted pine nuts, baked banana. Cleanly fruity and malty inset, bit toasted and biscuity like the amber colour already announced, fizzy but smooth with exotich fruits retronasally as well as a deep grapefruity and piney hop bitterness, very long, very aromatic but harshly bittering as well, resiny with some minerally saltiness, abrasive, very herbal and lasting for a long time. Quite an agressive IPA, but I liked it.

Drinking this mostly as a chaser to that nasty smoked ale just before - like seriously, that stuff just does not jive with my goods. I gotta tell ya. This has a very nice head- strong and sitting on top of a decent brown body with no carbonation. Aroma is sweet hops, typical hops, decent hops, American hops; yeah, there’s no layering here but it screams craft beer IPA like al the rest. Flavour is a decent balanced mix of hops with a hint of malt. Just okay, well made, but hard to pick out of a crowd.

Dam nice diverse cratery head. Good depth color. Springy pineyness. Nice foaming frostiness. Aftertaste, alcohol.

Bartzilla (608) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Very solid NW ipa. I’ve had 2 beers from this brewery and thought both were outstanding for the region. Typicall I expect the NW pales and IPS to be a little towards the maltier side, but these are much more hop forward. This is a crisp and easy chugger. Digging it.

pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle - Compliments of Indiana_Red’s wife - Semi clear gold with a white head. Hoppy aroma with a off beat citrusy flavor and solid hop bitterness on the trailer. Pretty good.

IndianaRed (3675) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Slightly hazy deep orange golden soapy persistent off-white head. Mild hoppy aromas and flavors. A mx of citrus and floral piney nites. Good all-around IPA. Not very big in any category but decent in all

Capa (2597) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bold Amber orange with a off-white head. Citrus fruit and pine in the aroma with a background malt sweetness. Comes across rather bitter to begin with. The malt really seems to reign in the hop profile. Has a slightly rusty feeling to it. Finish is a long on the bitterness and short on flavor. Decent and different.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Copper with a light tan head. Malt forward with a piney hop presence that builds with every sip. Caramel, biscuits, bread crust, citrus and floral notes pop up. Very good overall.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2015
Poured from a 22. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Flavor is smooth, slightly biscuit and citrus. Nothing too overpowering here. Finish has a bit of a bite to it. Overall easy drinking beer!

shoulderbroken (3535) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2015
Darker than expected, copper coloured with golden head. Aroma is resin, pine, grapefruit and caramel sweetness. Taste is good, earthy bitterness, caramel maltiness, bit of citrus and grass at the end and maybe slightly nutty. Bitter finish leaves a pleasant tingle on the tongue. Very nice!
