Editors Note: in 2012 released as Psace Needle Golden Anniversary IPA.

It was 1962 and the world came to Seattle for the World’s Fair and its futuristic symbol, the Space Needle. The beer served at the ‘62 World’s Fair? Likely nothing at all like this west coast style IPA, generously brewed with five varieties of Yakima Valley aroma and flavoring hops. We then dry hop it with whole-cone Columbus, Summit and Centennial hops, which impart a floral aroma that has catapulted this beer to one of Pike Brewing customer’s favorite IPA’s.
MALT VARIETIES: Munich, Cara-Pils, Malted Wheat

jgb9348 (5122) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Rich amber coloured body with a bright copper glow and a nice thick three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light hops, alcohol, metal and a hint of pine. Medium-bodied; Sharp pungent hop flavour of grapefruit and pine with a bit of malt, some light sugars and some mild metallic notes. Aftertaste shows a good balance of malt and hops with a bit of pungent floral and resinous hop notes and a good sweetness. Overall, a good beer that’s well balanced and nice to try! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage (Northern Lights Blvd), Alaska on 22-May-2013 for US$9.99 sampled in my hotel room here in Anchorage, Alaska on 25-May-2013.

DocLock (8596) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle shared at PUB’R HQ. Poured hazy straw colored with off-white head. Nose was hopcitrus, pae malt, mild spice and florals. Tasted medium in palate heft and complexity, with florals and funk matched by hopcitrus. This one reminded me of a Flower Power Junior.

brokensail (13668) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Golden pour with a white head. Nose is grassy with some orange and grapefruit hops. A bit sweet and malty with some bread and caramel notes. The flavor is also fairly sweet, sort of surprising for a modest ABV beer like this. Grapefruit, orange, and some light floral notes. Grass, a touch of pine, bitter finish, and sweet bread and caramel malts.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Explodes from the bottle 75% foam, slowly settling into a hazy, pale yellow beer. The aroma includes some spring-cut grass and light lemony citrus. This drinks with a definite spicy front, like an arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette. Light on its toes. (#4993, 4/21/2013)

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of roasted grain, moderate to heavy grapefruit juice for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with sour apple, ginger and a hint of solvent. Head is small to average size, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky pale amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet, moderately acidic and a bit acetic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent, alcoholic and dry finish. A bit tart in the flavor and the caramel aroma associated with a DIPA isn’t there, but the hops are perfect.

Honung honung honung. Inte direkt vad jag längtade efter just nu. Inga andra smaker värda att nämna

zizzybalubba (1626) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine needles, lemon zest, light caramel, and tangerine. Pine and grapefruit hit the tongue first but are soon met with some caramel and toffee malts that keep this from being a bit overwhelming. Given the high bitterness, this is surprisingly easy to drink. Nicely done.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Gold pour, white head. Lots of sweet tropical fruit notes, grassy hops, citrus hops, lightly bitter but not overly malty by any stretch. Nice.
