COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

shoulderbroken (2418) - 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!

Bookseeb (125) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Appearance is a hazy orange amber supporting a healthy steady head leaving collared lace. Smell is sweet with citrus with a piney aroma. Taste is hop forward of the malt having that piney grapefruit with the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Makes for a nice IPA offering.

UXO (599) - CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with a fat finger of rocky light beige head, good retention and excellent lacing. (5/5) Nose is pithy grapefruit, caramel malt, pine resin, apricot and other fruit, hint of honey. (8/10) Taste is medium sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, slick and mildly warming finish. (4/5) An upstart of an IPA with a DIPA attitude. Hops and malt trade places with alternating sips, but it’s all citrus and piney bitterness in the finish, with just a mild warming from the moderately beefy ABV. Some might consider it a hop bomb at 85IBU, but for me it’s a solid and well-built performer, with emphatic but not overwhelming bitterness. I might be being a little generous here, but not by a lot. (15/20)

cheap (4389) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
from a bottle can smell big dull ipa clear over here. a darker ipa fer sure but certainly not black. wew, packs a pine flavored spruce ipa impact fer sure. strong bitter almost astringent after taste following each swig. on style except for that sharp astringent palate on the finish. yes, rudeness borders on double ipa or triple territory with its rude penetrating ipa finish, wew. difficult to absorb.
