Nice IPA... good NW hop character, but not very complex like the best IPA's. I gave a few extra points for the alc. content.

Well, mixed emotions. on one hand I like the "in your face" bitter kick of this one on the other hand I didn't like the malty sweetness. Still good though!

This was a classy IPA. Not too bitter but great balance. Recommended.

Medium bodied typical northwest micro brew hops light on the aroma heavy on the bitterness. Malty enough but the malt loses to the hops. A good everyday beer

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear, golden colored, with a thin little head. Smells slightly of hops. Taste is thin and bitter, with no malt taste. Overall I think that this beer could be much better with a little higher ending S.G.(more sweetness).

Pours light straw color with a bubbly head. Very hoppy from the nose on through to the finish. Not enough malt backgroungd to support the abundance of hops. A good IPA but could be a lot better.

Thin watery mouthfeel makes for an easy drinking brew with a nice dry hoppy finish, but just lacking in overall quality. Respectable brew all the same.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
full rich aroma that dosn’t fade.thin head with no lace at all. clear golden-orange color. the taste is sweet with a strong hop finish. call me crazy, but this fits in my book more like a marzen than a IPA. it was enjoyable none the less.
