3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Haggen’s Grocery, Burlington
Hazy amber color, bright, with generous head. Very nice aroma, fruity, sweet orange peel. Lean mouthfeel, on the dry side, but soft on the tongue; mild caramel flavor, that lets the hops appear quite freely.
Very clean, good old school IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 Hazy amber with a thin head. Herbal, woody c-hop action on the nose with maybe some amarillo as well. A little bit watery but burly woody bitterness. Decent IPA.

One liter bottle that suggests growler. This from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light amber with a frothy 2 finger off-white head. We’re talking NW IPA here. Aroma of citrus over mild roast caramel. Med+ body. Flavor starts malty, but the hop (I think both citrus and resin) sort of knocks the malt out of consideration. It is marvelously bitter. It may not be the most bitter NW IPA ever, but if that’s what you want, well, this should be in the top ten(for now). Wow, but this is damn good ale.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus and pine aftertaste. Decent overall.
