3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfume and citrus on the nose, wafting above golden amber ale with a nice white head. Slight haze and good carbonation. This is hop resin. The bitterness is the show - all the way. Very resinous, citrus and rather astringent. Normally I like my IPAs right out of the fridge, but you want this one to warm to let the body help balance the bitterness. If you want DIPA hoppiness without the gravity of a DIPA this is your beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Uber Tavern, pours a clear / hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, along with vegetal and skunky herbal hops. Flavour reveals notes of skunky vegetal herbal hops, some pine, and some modest residual sugar. Very nicely balanced, with load of hops. Very nice stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at uber. Clear dark amber, white head, good lacing. Aroma is all pine and litter box, but taste brings in tons of citrus. Moderately sweet with big bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: a NW classic I should have rated long ago.

Great ipa but here it lacked lacing of any sort. Slightly resiny and fruity and higher abv than most, but not in a distracting way.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to my summer secret santa. Pours a hazy light amber color with a small head that fades to a thin white ring. Aroma is slightly dank with some nice floral, pine, and light citrus hops. Tastes slightly juicy at first and quickly turns very bitter. Flowers, pine, and citrus hops balance each other well. Remains smooth despite the rather strong bitterness. Really enjoyable IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy copper color with a fairly thick off-white head on it. Nose is definitely hop-forward, with some floral and grassy elements to it. Taste is moderately bitter, but doesn’t taste too fresh, which is unfortunate. Still a decent drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Brews Almighty, Everett, 4.8% ABV
Hazy amber color with compact head. Hoppy aroma, not extremely strong, with a light animal side. Good body strength, more than expected; the toffee malt is mostly evident, yet overwhelmed by the strong hopping; the flavor is caramelly, but also with plenty of resiny hops.
Good, but not elegant.

Draft pour. Piney, floral aroma. A storm of hops in this IPA. This is everything I look for in an IPA. Loved it.
