Poured an effervescent amber with a fizzy/frothy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of pine and a bit of citrus with a touch of toffee underneath. Flavor comes through predominantly as piney hops with a touch of malt sweetness... bitter, clean, refreshing. A tasty brew that I thought was an APA... I guess I have a bit of a taste for amped-up ambers.

Flavour is composed of toasted brown malts, burnt sugar, berry, assertive back of the throat bitterness. Some brown sugars and jammy fruit linger. Good lace. Slight metallic note. Harsh bitterness.

650ml bottle from Lee’s Discount Liquor store. Muddy dark brown, big foamy beige head. Toffee hop aroma. Flowery caramel hop flavour. Sweet caramel aftertaste. Quite sweet for an IPA but it works quite well.

I haven’t had enough Northwestern style hoppy ales to be convinced that the style deserves its own category, but if I keep having examples as tasty as Captain Sig’s, I’ll happily become an advocate for legitimizing the style. Rich, sweet malts mixed with earthy, citrusy hops. The balance between caramel sweetness and spicy bitterness is done quite smartly. Plus, that’s an awesome bottle.

jmgreenuk (6193) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 27, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a reddish brown with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is ripe citrus, light floral, light herbal. The flavour is moderate bitter sweet with a smooth, rich, fruity, yeast, alcoholic, bitter hop, light chocolate palate and la ingering alcoholic bitter finish. It tastes much stronger than it is.

vikingguy (968) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Cloudy rusty red/brown with frothy off white head. Dark fruit and grassy hops on the nose. Taste- the bitter grassy and slightly spicy hops hit you first followed by and fairly rich caramel molasses malt. Some raisiny plum fruit is also there too. Very nice ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
