COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry and floral, with the beautiful aroma of fresh hops and a sublime maltiness from gently roasted barley.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Light copper color. Soft citrus leaning towards tangerines on the nose. Not overpoweringly aromatic, but pleasant. Lightly sweet with flowery and slightly piney hop flavors. Finishes clean and dry. Very balanced and easy drinking. A refreshing change to a lot of the over the top IPA’s on the market right now.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Copper color with a medium ivory head that slowly disipates. Malt is the dominant trait to this IPA. The nose is all malt and caramel. Light bodied and nice caramel, malt flavors. Hop flavors are slow to awaken but are dominant in the finish. The finish is simple, clean, and all hops. A quality beer.

Light color, not much head. Nice sharp flavor flavor, you can really taste the hops as the flavor goes on.

MrDick (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2004
On Tap Caramel pour punctuated by hops aroma. Much more hops in this than the other beers on tap at Pike Pub & Brewery. Pretty standard Pacific Northwest style IPA. But it's tasty.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Nice orange color with a firmly retained off white head. Aroma is hoppy but also sweet malt with a bit of biscuit. Flavor is really nice. Very assertive use of the hop in the initial taste and the finish. Bit of malt to add balance. Damn, I wished there were brews like this on every corner here in Texas. Thanks Andre'

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 had this on tap at Pike pub in downtown seattle. Very solid IPA with good flavor. Also had this from the bottle and it wasn't as good.

heykevin (1276) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Exotic fruity aroma, mango and peach. Seems rich in fresh amarillos. Healthy bitterness, good flavor as weel. Malt is solid but hop flavor is prominent. Nice IPA.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Clear orange body with a frothy white head. Pouring out the rest of the bottle I see that this is a bottle conditioned beer, lots of yeast floaties. Pleasant sweet malt, almost an English ESB aroma with some cinnamon in ther, as well as citrus hop aroma. The flavor is like a really hoppy ESB. Citrus hops and sweet malt. Body is medium. Really an interesting IPA, much different then typical IPA. Would make an excellent session IPA.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Pours a deep gold, almost amber with a nice thick layer of head, and spotty lacing. Spicy nose, full of cinnamon and maybe ginger. Maybe even licorice. More of the same in the flavor, the licorice standing out a bit more. Palate is smooth and coats the mouth. Maybe it's mint that I'm tasting. Nevertheless, it's a pretty good IPA.

OldGrowth (2675) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2004 Bottle: Lite on the nose. Fruity, a kind of belgiany scent. Orange color, clean with little head. Grapefruit rind and skunky. Thin body with big bitter finish. Bottle had a Best by April date on the side. I bought in october. Hope this explains why not very good. Origanal rating 4/3/4/3/10. Tap at brewpub. Much better than bottle experience. Citrus, orange and grapefruit. Carmel. Lite pine. Nice clean orange copper color. No head. Sweet, bitter flavors. Same as nose except more grapefruit than orange. Kinda creamy, thin bodied. Bitter finish. Very tasty, classic west coast. First beer in Seattle.
