3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, apple skins, bready malt. Flavor also heavy on the fruits, especially apple, with pale malts and bitter hops in the finish. Tasty beer, but really more of a pale ale than IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pilsner malts on the nose. Taste is pretty plain. Minor Vienna qualities with Munich malts almost no bitterness or at least it’s blended in well. I can’t believe this one is 58 ibus

Had on tap while at the top of the Space Needle. Orange pour with head and lacing. Citrus hop and malt aroma. Taste was a combination of citrus and piney hops. Relatively clean finish, medium body and some carbonation. Having a beer with a view of the city at almost 600 feet is quite the experience.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep gold with a huge white head. Aroma is spicy pine. Taste is heavy bitter pine up front followed by a light syrup mid palate and a gritty malty bitter finish. If you love bitter IPA’s, you will love this one. Nothing about this beer is timid and amazingly it’s already a year old (2012).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber bottle, no best before date, at tasting on 18 November 2012. Thanks to Theydon_Bois for sharing. Mid gold colour. Slight haze. Much as expected from a PNW IPA, but none the worse for that. Pine and resin, backed up by grapefruit in the aroma and flavour. More bitter than the relatively modest IBU count would suggest. Good hoppy stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange pour. Nose and taste have mellowed due to age. Good beer, justnot as hoppy as I thought it would be. Once again, probably its age.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5/28/13. Bottle from Total Wine. Poured into two glasses - noteworthy because the first glass was a mild amber pour, slightly hazy - the second glass was amber and filled with big, giant floaties - pour carefully on this one. The aroma and flavor show Belgian esters, sweetness, bitter hops, and plenty of citrus. This reminds me of a Belgian golden with some hop characteristics, as opposed to just an IPA.

Golden orange, huge, towering white head. Big fresh grapefruit aroma. Very citrusy flavors and aroma. Some nice, subtle smokey notes, too. . Hints of caramel and honey, too. Nice stuff...
