Inspired by the great West Coast IPAs, we have created a well balanced beer to satisfy all. Born of Amarillo and Centennial hops, this baby is well over 1 pound of hops per barrel while it’s still in the kettle and we dry hop with yet another pound per barrel once fermentation is complete. To balance the substantial hopping we provide plenty of malt backbone. The result is a complex interaction of bitterness, fruity fermentation esters and citrusy hop character.

Draft pour pint at the Collective, Woodinville. At first glance, I thought this was a typical appearing local, for somewhat obvious reasons. I went from "had never heard of these guys before", to, "glad I cashed in on the opportunity to try this beer for likely the last time. No stranger to the rebrand or redesign, but this IPA is good as it is. Dark copper pour with a ton of foam lacing. Very mild hop aroma. Much bigger in the flavor. Orange fruit. A bit soapy, but not bad. Lingering hops finish. Solid IPA for sure. Glad I got me a Schooners tick at the last minute. I’ll look for the new brew for sure.

From notes. Gold/orange. White carbonation. Very fresh tasting hops- tons of grapefruit and resin with some subtle malt sweetness. Medium body is balanced and very easy to drink. Solid IPA.

GABF 2009. Clear golden color with a small white head, really is a pale IPA. Aroma is citrus and floral hops as well as some tropical fruit and pale malt. Flavor is a small amount of grainy pale malt and a good but not outstanding floral and citrus hop profile. A bit of pineapple present. Palate is medium-full with some hops lingering. Overall pretty good.

Draught at Beers in the Plaza. Gold with a small head. Lots of fruity and floral hops in the aroma with peach sticking out. Nicely dry and medium on bitterness. Definitely more finesse in the hops than many, which is welcomed. The malt is just a clean toasty grain that lets the hop flavor shine. The body is a bit light for the style too, making this very tasty and drinkable overall.

joeneugs (5822) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 16, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Tropical fruit, floral pine and citrus in the aroma. Straightforward west coast IPA. A bit unbalanced with the intense hops, and not much in the way of malt. Piney, floral taste with grapefruit. Not exciting, but solid.

This clear golden ale poured with a nice off-white head and a floral aroma. The flavor is at first malty sweet, but quickly fades to citrus and grassy hops. A refreshing and tasty brew.

Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a pale golden color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma with some hints of citrus. Slightly swetish malty bitter hoppy citrus flavor with some piney hints. Has a long hoppy bitter citrus finish with a bitter aftertaste.
