There are more IPAs in the NW than sunny days, so afficianados tend to parse the style to their own tastes. Pyramidís one of the best--big and hoppy. It has a ícattyí quality that some donít like, but to others those hops are manna. Many of the comments here indicate that itís not big or aggressive enough, but I think itís just a well-balanced beer. The hops canít shock because itís too big a beer, yet it doesnít taste huge because of the crisp malting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #1147 8 oz at Beer Revolution, July 4, 2014. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hops, roasted malt, and is quite earthy. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of caramel. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Pretty average.

Good IPA. Slightly sweet malt bill. Hops are more pine oriented. Sufficient bitterness.

Tap at the Alehouse right next to Safeco. Beer garden plastic cup. Deep orange in color...maybe a hint of copper. Minor white head. Aroma is relatively mild. Hops at the forefront with a bitter, grassy middle and end. Maybe a hint of sweetness. Like most of their offerings itís very tame and forgettable. Cool location though.

"i remember having a really good imperial ipa from Pyramid once, but it must have been based on a different IPA than this one...this is the budweiser of IPAís. anything but inspired. less aroma and flavor than one would expect."
