3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked this up at Bottleworks over the weekend... Shared with reinheitsgematt tonight...
The nice fella at Bottleworks suggested this and his bigger brother as the cool hopcentric beers they had in stock at the time.
Pours a dark golden... great head and lacing.
The nose is fantastic... tropical fruity hoppiness and a very light pale malt backbone... The aromas are great.
Flavor mirrors the nose with a surprisingly mild bitter bite that is only balanced by the onslaught of hop flavors... again, this is pretty special.
Body and carbonation are very nice.
This brew is a damn near perfect example of a balanced PNW IPA... loving it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Beer Junction. Pours bright orange copper with medium off-white head that laces well. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt and earthy, floral, fresh hops on the back. Taste is chewy medium caramel malt with big crisply bitter hops. As advertised it fades and finishes clean. Dark citrus, pine, and floral notes stand out. Well balanced and flavorful. Solid IPA.

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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
