Draft at Chucks. Pours clear dark amber with white head. Aroma: deeply toasted malts, caramel, non descript spicy/slightly piney hop profile. Palate: full body, oily texture, average carbonation. Taste: moderately sweet, caramel, lots of caramel. Assertively, borderline overpowering bitter finish. Overall: fairly typical NW IPA.

On tap @ Rooftop. Pours hazy dark orangish copper with thin creamy head that fades quickly but laces well. Aroma is roasty caramel malt and big earthy vegetal hops. Taste is similar, roasty malt are strong bit not overly sweet. Hops are big and bitter; notes of pine, with light grass and grapefruit too. A more traditional style than the other Rooftop brews I’ve tried, but easily their best effort as well.
