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.

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.

Growler from Chuck’s 85th. Pours dark golden yellow with thin creamy white head. Aroma is grainy malt and earthy hops. Taste is clean crisp lightly toasted malt with big earthy herbal bitter hop finish. Lingers bitter. Nice, well balanced IPA, allows the hops to shine. Another simple, excellent beer from Pfriem.
