3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub in Seattle.
Pours a dark golden orange color with dark straw colored edges and a 1.5 finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting cap. The glass is left coated with soapy lacing.
Earthy hop aroma with lots of grassy pine countered by citrus and tropical fruit notes. Hints of pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel counter the earthiness nicely along with subtle biscuity pale malts.
Medium bodied with a blast of bitter, sticky hops that linger over the sweeter notes into a bitter dry finish. Really dank and earthy with lots of grassy, earthy pine and soil. This is countered by tropical fruit and citrus sweetness as well as some biscuit and caramel malt. Lingering bone dry finish.

Happy Ipa day! Pours a hazy golden brown with a a nice off white head with great lacing. Smells of Pine, grapfriut and caramel. Tastes like all the smells I mentioned above plus vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy and a dry finish. Overall this is very balanced for an Ipa and the best I’ve had from Pike Brewing so far.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Fiery amber, very cloudy, large frothy sandy head, fairly clumpy lacing.   Musty pithy nose, a little dank, some underarm and sweat.   Hmmmm, not terribly bright on the nose.   Dull citrusy start, pithy, remains a little musty and dank.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dank, musty, pithy finish.   Nothing special as far as I am concerned, and a bit stale overall.
