Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours two and half fingers on a clear dark straw colored body. The aroma is spicy with some lemon and a little earthy. The taste is moderate pine and lemon bitterness backed up by a big malt bill. It finishes with a long pine bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

mcberko (5931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a fairly clear amber orange with a medium beige head. Aroma of light pine, metallic notes and earthy malt. Flavour brings out fresh piney hops, some floral notes, and earthy malt. Really well-balanced and more pleasant flavours than aromatics. Good stuff.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, orange rind, floral, grass, caramel, pine, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with big citrus hop presence and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops with a moderate malt balance; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Had 22 oz bomber, as they say, at wob cap hill all by my lonesome as my first brew of 2014. Dark muddy brown color. Toffee aroma. Very dry and medium bodied initial sip. Sweetness evens out this brew in the middle. Grassy hops and caramel balance nicely. Another fantastic washington ipa.

Okay, finally getting around to reviewing more Northern Lights (No-Li) beers. After their rebranding everybody in the hometown suddenly wants to drink their beer again - meaning it’s finally fresh while on the shelves! Pours amber with soapy light tan foam atop. Smells of bubble gum, cotton candy, pine, resin, some grapefruit, a little touch of grass. I gotta say, this reminds me of two hearted initially. As it rests, the nose dies out pretty quick and becomes malt heavy. Flavor is bitter with matching sweet malts a bit o resin. Medium bodied with medium carb and a dry finish. Good beer

Amber brown with moderate lacing when poured from a tap. Light citrus aroma and bitter yet citrus taste. Solid ipa.

This is a really gorgeous IPA, reddish amber ale, deep in color with a truly sexy head. And later on, wow... what lacing! It has a remarkable nose of moderately dark caramel malts, nearly tasting like a red ale, with a beautiful bouquet of dark green, plant-like hops balanced nicely with the beer’s maltiness. A touch of some strange hop-infused candy helps decorate the aroma. More of that candy-like hop flavor and deeply caramelized maltiness join up in the flavor. A soft, but sharp hop bitterness bites the tip and underside of the tongue up front, and remains into the finish, which is intense in the top-center of the tongue and lasts long after the beer has gone down. It offers a very pleasant hop experience, with sweetness overshadowed by a slight burnt malt character. With this dark red malt presence and sharp hop bitterness this is much more like an India red ale, enjoyable, and completely out of the norm for an IPA. Nice!
