2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Aromas of light pine, peach, and light caramel. Clear amber-brown with a small head. Good bitterness but severely lacking in hop flavor or any malt background. Harsh and unbalanced. A boring pale ale.

Decent aroma with a light flavor. One of the better cabonations in the North by Northwast beers. I would have again!

draft at nxnw. This is a good pale ale. It pours orange with yellow tinged froth and is heavy on citrus, although there is a solid malt backbone of biscuit and toast. There are actually some ginger-like notes on the finish, nice. Medium bodied, smooth, and drinkable.

In cask at NXNW. Nice citrus and flower nose with some sweet malt in the nose. Big citrus fruity flavor. Nice round and balanced flavor. Very drinkable. This is Ty’s IPA. He got rid of the old PyJino Pale and made this his own. Great job Ty!

Golden amber to light copper pour. Decent hop aroma and flavor, but could have used more. Pretty smooth. I agree with some of the others that this is about as good as it gets at this brewpub.

On cask at the brewery. Wow, what a smooth, enjoyable beer. Thanks Ty for increasing the hops in this from its former self. It is delicious on draught & the cask was awesome. The hop flavor & aroma are wonderful: citrus, earthy too. Mild sweetness along with the bitterness. A well-rounded pale ale/IPA that you don’t want to miss, even on draught.
