Bottle. Golden amber beer with a thin off-white head. Big tropical fruit aroma. Traopical fruit, pine flavor with lots of hops. Not overly bitter. Medium body. Slight astringency. Lingering hops, earth, and a bit of sweetness.

On tap at Hop Vine Pub, Seattle. Copper colour with thin white head. Very hoppy. Astringent, woody. Not much malt structure. Bit of woody vanilla and then big whop of hops on end. Uncultured and no depth. Astringent hop finish and fun though.

Great IPA. Really easy on the taste buds. The hops are alive and aren’t overwhelming at all. Has a nice tangy sweetness to it that’s complimented well by some bitterness. Nice aftertaste for an IPA.

Draught at the Parkway Tavern Day of IPAs. By now I’ve tasted too many beers in one day, so take this rating with a grain of salt. Pours an almost clear orange amber. Citrus in the nose. Light body. The taste
has some mango and vanilla. Resinous bitter finish.

Orangey-amber colour. Woody, citric, piney hop nose. Clear, deep, woody, earthy bitterness meshes with slighty toasty breadcrusty malts. Finish is long, dry, woody. I am seldom disappointed with a PNW IPA, this one no exception.
