We heap the hops into each batch of our Thunderhead IPA. A golden nectar with a striking floral aroma, Thunderhead holds a harmonious balance between its bold hop bitterness and subtle malt backbone.

bhensonb (11788) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Piney plus aroma. Not sure what the floral is.Hazy golden amber color with persistent lacing. Grapefruit fibre. Swishing thickens the texture. Very fresh. Bitter, astringent finish. Good IBUs. Puckers the mouth, lingers on the tongue. Itís underrated so far. So Iíll up the average. Itís worthy. And it goes well with salmon!

Theydon_Bois (10569) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Tap at the Seattle Taproom (Sea-Tac Airport) - 09/11/12. Very lightly hazed mid amber with a thin off white head, lively carbonation evident (Great - Not!). Nose is light caramel malt, touch of citrus, a little hoppage, a pretty muted nose all told. Taste is caramel malt, some hop bitterness, a little candied sugar, citrus notes, light floral tones. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation (badly done IPA!) leading to a bitter finish. Below par stuff - not recommended.

Ratman197 (10438) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle poured a clear copper with a small short lived off white head. Aromas of pine, earthiness, and a bit of carmel. Palate was light and a bit resiny. Flavors of bitterness, some pine, and a hint of carmel with a dry, bitter finish.

hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Hazy, peach-colored ale. Small, fizzy, off-white head with good, weeping lacework. The nose is tangy and fruity with notes of grapefruit, lemon, apricot and leather. The flavor is rich with malty goodness. Grapefruit and apricot also make an appearance. Very astringent and harshly bitter with a whisper of pungency. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, bitter, dry finish.

Bottle, poured at Oakes and Beershines. Rich golden color. Fruity aroma wtih good caramel notes and hops. Flavor is pretty malty up front and then leads to some nice citrus hops. Pretty well done.
