Ths poured a bright orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, cascade, and light lemon peel. Flavor was mild citrusy hops, medium bitterness, followed by caramel sweetness. Not terrible, but I think may be a little old.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Vons in Seattle. Must have been an off-batch or dirty lines. One of the worst IPAs I drank that day. Tasted flat and lacking any kind of unique citrus or pine character. All three of us had full pints and it was rather appalling. The place was jam-packed and busy so you would think that the keg was turning over reasonably quickly. I would love to try this elsewhere given how many others here seem to think itís decent. It was practically a drain-pour for us on that day at that location.

One of the surprises of my fairly random drinking in downtown Seattle for a conference. I wasnít expecting much from the many IPAs on tap, but this had a decent balance and a very drinkable complexion, esp. in the finish. On tap at Vonnís, Seattle.
