22oz in Seattle. Darker mahogany. Medium amber aroma, soft caramel, fruity red fruit. Hops come in softly at end, some pine, but lots of caramel. Solid but not too interesting.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This one is complex. Before the bitterness quicks in, there’s a sublime sweetness in the malt flavor. Hops are decidedly pine oriented. A good one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, served in a cheater pint. Pours bright orange copper with thin white head that laces well. Aroma is deep caramel malt, just a hint of hops stand out against the sweetness. Taste is similar - juicy chewy flavorful caramel malt, with a somewhat sharp hop bite. The hops are aggressively bitter, but not all that flavorful. Some dank pine notes, but that’s about it. Not a bad beer at all, but quite malt driven for a NW IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and slightly reddish amber color with a moderate cream-colored head. Nose was pretty light for me with some subtle grass elements to it. Taste has just a touch of sweetness, with a bit of bitterness and a little caramel in there. A delightfully complex beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Kokopelli, Port Angeles
Amber color with creamy head. Hop aroma and some toasted malts. Dryish mouthfeel; something is strange with the malts, but it has a nice fox grape touch; strong bitterness and plenty of hop resins. It has a light unfortunate vegetable touch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours an amber color with a creamy off-white head that pillowed and left lots of lacing rings. Nose of of stone fruit and floral hops. Body is medium. Mouth feel smooth . Flavor shows lots of the fruit, mostly nectarine Floral hops and some orange zest. Grapefruit maybe. But maybe not. Some bitterness in the finish. Really classic west coast IPA. Easy drinking. Lots of flavor. Lots to like. .

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A big off white head that slowly falls and leaves sticky lacing. A bit of haze in this coppery beer. Citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma are nice. Some caramel. There is all kinds of tropical fruit in here. Pineapple, nectarine, tangerine and mango. Caramel malts with some bread. The fruit reigns here and is very nice. Orange zest and grapefruit. This is sweet and fruity. And very tasty. Good stuff.
