Can from Mitsuya’s Liquor. Drank straight from the can. Great tropical fruit nose with some piney aromas as well. Taste is more of the same. Kinda spiky finish, but overall not bad. A solid IPA.

This India Pale Ale won’t redeem my recent dissatisfaction with IPA’s. Kind of dry.

Can from LifeSource. Hazy medium amber/orange in color. Nice hop nose with a little sweetness. Fairly dry and hopped up front. A little fruitiness follows. Muted grapefruit peel notes in the finish. Pretty Tasty IPA. A little one the dry grapefruit peel side, but not bad.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Schooner. Pours bright golden copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt and fresh piney vegetal hops. Taste is chewy medium caramel malt and big bitter hops - juicy pine and dark citrus notes jump out. Nothing fancy, just a solid delicious IPA. An easy pick when I see it on tap in Seattle, which is saying something given the quality of IPAs in this town. Right there with Lucille, Interurban, and Trickster for best local iteration.
