Growler from my coworker at our department office Christmas party. Pours a light orange with medium white head. Aroma is big pine and slight lime. Taste is citrus, slightly bitter and a bit of orange peel. Pine is on the finish. Nice IPA, thanks Tim!

Tap at Fiddlers. Gold-amber pour. Huge--I mean absolutely huge--pine nose. But in a really lovely way, a gorgeous old-school IPA way rather than a pinesol way. The flavor follows, plenty of resin but no crushing bitterness. Really well done.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5+14 oz
Hazy blond color with compact persistent head. Peculiar aroma, very nice: it’s fruity, grapey, possibly also cheesy (goat cheese). The lean pale malt body is a great choice, still it conveys quality; hop explosion, very resiny, bitter, quite fruity and piney.
Great, straight, modern IPA.

On tap at Garricks Head, Victoria, Canada. Translucent copper, white head. Dank nose, grassiness, clean malt, some crystal but not too much. Flavour has more dankness, grape, very clean, not as good as their blond ipa but not many beers are.

rich gold, thin puffy white head, ample lacing. Pungent hop oil nose, lightly skunky with huge white grapefruit, lightly peppery. Sweeter flavor mars hops, oily with orange and soap early, more fruit mid with pine across the light anise finish, sticky and thin.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Waddell’s.
A glassy apricot color with just an etched top of foam. Smells like grapefruit, some other citrus, a little peach, but mostly like grapefruit. Flavor is nice and bitter with a solid hoppy flavor, plenty more of that grapefruit, some lighter bready malts, good bitter finish. Really solid tasting beer for me. Medium bodied with moderate on hi carb that offers a slight burn then finishes wet. I like this beer, I think it is a quintessential PNW IPA. Just refreshing to get away from he Citra, maltodextrin, sweet East Coast style going around.
