22 oz. bomber from 99 Bottles in Federal Way. Pours translucent red/amber with a generous head. Good lacing throughout. Malty, hoppy, piney/sprucey in the tradition of Rogue’s Santa’s Private Reserve and Sierra Nevada’s Celebration. This is very smooth, and a really impressive brew. Let’s see if it ages well.

On tap at Winter Beer Festival. Pours and reddish-brown color with a small head on top. Aroma is a nice mixture of sweet caramel malts and citrusy hops. This beer was a nice twist on a traditional IPA with fruity flavors hitting the tongue. Not overbearing and well-pronounced just a nice hint of a touch. A tasty winter ale!

On draught at the brewery. Aroma is some extremely sweet caramel forward followed by light hop citrus and grassy notes. Appearance is a medium amber, with a good off-white head. Flavor is sweet caramel forward with light hop citrus, some earthiness and an odd, but very smooth resiny finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, resiny, with starch in the afteraste. Overall, complex, very interesting, with some great aged notes.

Very dark and rich IPA - very hopped somewhat spicy. Malty without being sweet and bittered very well. A little fruity, but in a good way.

I am glad to introduce a new beer to ratebeer and be the first to rate it. When I first had this beer at the cork and keg ( wine and beer ) tasting the beer salesman told me this was an IPA, if so, it seems a bit different than most. This beer Pours a ruby brown with an off white head. Has a rich malt, fruit and spice aroma. With flavors of malts, fruit, hops and almost a nutmeg finish. Overall this was an excellent beer with a thick creamy palate and a crisp finish. ENJOY.
