"Dear god what is this abomination. A well meaning friend brought this back (recently mind you) from the space needle gift shop, so it was even marked up 50%. Who wants to friggin age iPas anyway?! At 6.5/58, this just didn’t stand up, and in top of that, practically pours foam. So looks crappy, smells like stale hops and biscuit mLt mixed with cardboard, feel is ridiculously over carbonated and not much else, and the taste was drain pour worthy. For 9.99."

Cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops. Flavor is grapefruit hops as well, very acidic. Light malt to balance a little. Finishes a bit bittersweet and sharp. Wife: 3.5

penstemon (127) - - JUL 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a finger of compact white foam and some nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tangerine, mango, passionfruit, some pine. Definitely hop centric. Also yeast and the slightest bit of grass. Taste is grapefruit, tangerine, a bit of tropical fruit, some crackery malt, pine, and a big kick of oily resinous hops. Medium-high bitterness. Medium body, nice foamy carbonation, mouth coating bitterness. Slightly sweet and very fruity, with an oily-dry finish. Excellent.

Solid IPA. High bitterness. Not a sprightly mouthfeel, but has substance to it. Good zing. Hop notes lean more towards resin. Recommended.

On tap at the brewpub. Milky burnt orange pour with a white head. Pine and resin hop aromas. Taste follows suit. A bit one dimensional with mineral lowlights. A bit unbalanced. Average body and mouthfeel.
