I drank this beer in Bert Grantís pub. He is the godfather of microbrews. A scientist and contractor for major breweries, he petitioned to repeal old prohibition laws prohibiting breweries from having a tap room. He is said to have carried a vial of hop oil around with him for the weaker beers he drank.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours like a brown ale almost - so dark. Sheet of light tan foam. Smells of english, almost winter warmer malts, some hops are there, but reserved. They smell tea/herbal. Taste is bitter with some herbal character and some cardboard. Flavor seems pretty one dimensional - bitter malt. Medium bodied with hi carb and a dry finish. Too bad, Iíve heard good things about this brewery.
Serving type: bottle

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought a 12 Fl. Oz. bottle of this from The Beer Shoppe in Yakima, WA for $1.90. Poured from the Blue/Green Labeled bottle w/ a cattle skeleton head on the front into a 16oz Arcadia IPA Pint Glass. Has no freshness date to be found on the bottle.
Aroma- Nice hops, citrus fruits, and light piney characters. Not dry hopped but sweeter on the nose.
Appearance- Pours a 1.5 finger head that has good head retention. Has a reddish copper colored body with semi-haziness. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Both citrus and light pine come through once again but very easy. Medium bitterness at the finish and sweet. No character overpowers any other one.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and has a sweet, hop flavor on the finish.
Overall Impression- A very fresh and light hopped up IPA! Enjoyed how easy going it was for the time of day I was enjoying this. Would like to have more from this brewing company!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had at the brewery. Pours dark yellow orange color with white bubbly head that lasts. Little lemon citrus hop aroma but mild. Flavor is weatery for an ipa with mild hop bitterness. Weak ipa imo. I seriously think this brewery is weakening its beers to cut costs based on other reviews I’ve read vs what I tasted.
