The great brewmasters of the Pacific Northwest are reverent of the past and its brewing traditions, but never cease to look forward, tinkering and experimenting to create flavors that are uniquely bold and new. Case-in-point, Pfriem’s Blonde IPA­— Its refreshing blast of citrus and secret ingredient (sunshine) will have you looking forward to another before even enjoying its just bitter enough­ finish­.

Capa (2426) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Medium orange with a white head. Tropical citrus notes in the aroma with light candied fruit. Medium bodied. Flavor is juicy citrus fruits, sugary fruit, and a noticeable lack of any malt tones. A very clean, hop filled, citrus forward IPA. Finishes bitter and lasting. Very well done. An impressive IPA.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Clear golden pour with white foam. Tons of orange, peach, and melon on the nose. Maybe a little on the sweet side... Some grape and grapefruit, as well. Not too much in terms of bitterness. Definitely some pale malt flavor and a slight sugary note. Good orange, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. Big time fruity hops and possibly esters. Pretty nice.

Strykzone (5901) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Sampled at the brewery. Golden and clear. An almost white head. A full glass of lace. Pine and fitrus are smelled. Classic but with a twist. Grass with pine. Bitterness creeps up. That blonde simplicity and rich malty pleasantness meets west coast IPA. It works.

Some lacing.N: Pine, orange peel, grapefruit, grassy, crackery, pineapple and earth on the fringes, some lavender and white peppercorn.T: Quite bitter to the point of astringency, light sweetness.M: Very dry, bit of booze, medium-light body, fizzy carbonation.O: Potent IPA. Not as successful as the regular - too much booze and not enough late addition hops for me.

maxwelldeux (4219) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a smallish off-white head on there. Nose is floral and crisp with just a hint of Belgian yeast to it. Taste is bitter and dry, but fresh and easy to drink. Nice brew...
