COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This northwest IPA is bold and balanced, with a rich malty flavor and a strong hop presence. We use premium 2-Row, Crystal, Munich and Victory malts to create the perfect base for showcasing Yakima-grown Columbus hops. After one sip you’ll agree, this is one hoppy bitch of a beer. 6.3% ABV 80 IBU

Very Balanced with a very forward malt profile and finishes with a good hop flavors and aromas....very sessionable IPA and is not over hopped like a lot of the IPA’s on the market today.

Dogbrick (9350) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Sample as part of a blind IPA tasting. The beer is a dark copper color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of floral hops, fruit and doughy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden amber color with a one finger head of a pure white billowy foam. The head fades relatively slowly leaving a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a grassy and herbal nature with a little bit of a cracker smell. A hint of a caramel and pine are there as well, creating a somewhat drier, but robust aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a drier cracker taste mixed with some hop flavors of an herbal and slightly grapefruit nature. The grapefruit remains rather tame throughout the taste with the herbal hop getting stronger and being joined by some other hop tastes of a grassy nature. A hint of caramel and fruit come more toward the end, but these remain very light overall, just adding a hint of flavor to the brew. With a little bit of a floral hop and more grass coming at the very end, one is left with a rather crisp and more dankly hopped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side to lower side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is slightly higher. While the crispness of the body and higher more tingly carbonation did match the crisp cracker like malt flavors of the brew rather well, just a hint more body may have been nice for the hop flavors of the brew. Overall the feel was decent. Overall- A rather nice more dankly hopped and drier tasting IPA. A good one to ty if you get the opportunity.

Not much going in the aroma. Some soap maybe. The flavor definitely has some hops but it’s just okay. The finish is super dry.

Citrusy aroma on this one. Cloudy appearance with a burnt orange color. Bitter start and even more so on the finish. No real flavor to speak of ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (7575) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
Draft - Hoppy citrus and bit of resinous pine. Clear gold with a decent beige head. Resinous and pithy bitterness with a quick finish. OK.

mcberko (9214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
On tap at Northwest, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Nose brings out gentle piney hops, some citrus and dry crackery malt. Flavour is quite bitter, with sharp spicy hops dominating, with a dry crackery malt backing. Decently balanced, though a tad abrasive. Okay.

Hazy dull amber-tan, thin head. Light grapefruit nose. A light toasty, and a little pithy but definitely husky.
