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.

22 oz bottle pours orange and pretty clear with a lasting off-white head and sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, bitter and piney with herbs, floral notes, light citrus and light malts. Similar flavor, resinous, bitter, zesty, earthy hops with a light malt backbone. Medium body, crisp and carbonated well with a lingering finish, a little harsh.

16 oz can...so its got that going for it already. Slight haze to the deep golden color with a huge dense pillowy head. Classic west coast hop aroma. Typical inviting IPA trademark. Flavor doesn’t quite keep up though.The malt character is a bit odd. Maybe its the Munich malts, like its trying to be biscuity. Has a stale papery flavor..and mostly just columbus bitterness. Just OK.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a moderately hazy, particle laden, amber (SRM 10) body....nose is resin, grapefruit, light cereal...taste is floral hops, grapefruit, light pine, resin, finishing with a moderate bitterness....mouth feel medium, carbonation low with light acid finish. This is a light, somewhat unbalanced, but session-able IPA. The malts are relatively hidden, with minimal toffee/caramel notes typically found and hop bitterness is muted, with floral notes dominating. Columbus is quite floral. BJCP 7/1/12/4/6

maxwelldeux (3069) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose had some decent floral elements to it with just a bit of pine poking through. Taste was quite bitter, but felt slightly heavy, and finished with some earthy notes on there. Not the drink and mouthfeel I expected from an IPA.

BuckeyeBoy (2454) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at tk bar after a late night at work. Pours out amber small head. Nose is citrus hops and some sweet malt. Taste is as the nose with a pretty light hop you would think with the name hoppy bitch it would be a nice hopped up ipa. Lacking hops in my opinion.

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Clear copper with a fading rocky/foamy white head. The nose is nice and leafy and piney resinous with a strong toffee background. Tastes clean and balanced and kinda refreshing with a medium body and bright carbonation. Lots of leafy herbal hops with a bit of pine resin and a bit of grapefruit rind. Medium bitterness meets with a backbone of toffee and a bit of earthy flower petals. Not a bad IPA by any means, it’s just kinda there. Not really trying anything new here,

Amber in color, God aroma. Nice easy drinking IPA with a good hops flavor and finish. Love that it comes in cans makes a great golf beer.

Poured from bottle 22oz in Denver. Orange clear white head. Hoppy and bitter. Earthy malt flavor. Decent ipa

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2013
16 oz can. Pours hazy golden copper with a medium creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet biscuity malts with a little fruity resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with big bitterness from resiny hops that leave a harsh, slightly vegetal, finish in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a little watery.

Overall, too much sweet biscuity malt and not enough hop flavor (but does have good bitterness).
