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

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.

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
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.

jgb9348 (5231) - 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 (8798) - 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 (14042) - San Leandro, 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 (6066) - 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)
