The BALANCED hop monster! This is one IPA with enough MALT BACKBONE to stand up to the high hopping level - 75 IBUs from 100% Columbus hops.

8oz sample at the Taphouse Grill. Pours orangey-copper with a white head. Aroma has pine and flowery hops with citrus and some caramel. Taste is of pine needles, flowery spices, grapefruit with some caramel back. Finishes bittersweet. A bit rough and the pieces do not come together as well as they sound.

Home filled keg. A good solid nw style ipa. Not overly hoppy but a perfect mix of hop and barley.

Solid IPA. For a Northwestern brewery, the interesting thing here is that itís relatively balanced between malts and hops (as opposed to being hop-centric), and furthermore, the hops are more resin-oriented -- unusual in an IPA of this low ABV. Good.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate pillowy off-white head on there. Iíve tried really hard, but I can get almost no smell on this one; there is just a faint whiff of grass, but nothing else I can detect. Taste is moderately bitter, but very light; I fear that this sat on the shelf of a Total Wine too long for me to make a fair judgment, but I have to rate whatís in front of me.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home on Easter Sunday. Pours a clear copper with a thick off white head. Weedy nose. Flavors of citrus and pine. Refreshing bitter finish.

Been looking to try this in a bottle that appears not to be too old (based on the giant cakes in most bottles in my area). Bottled: unk Pours hazy copper with solid sheet of small light cream foam. Smells like resin, hint of pine, grass, body odor, a really assertive PNW style nose here - punched in the face, to wake you from the rain. There is a strong biscuit (buttermilk) in the aroma as well. Taste is primarily malts with sweet and crackery flavors and a touch of cardboard oxidation alongside a healthy bitterness sans layered flavorful character. Some dry pithy and resiny flavors, but all and all a lower end flavor profile. Medium body with moderate carb and a slightly dry finish. This is not impressive at all, but I have seen others rave about it, maybe Iím simply getting old stuff. Serving type: bottle 12-27-2012

kaser (2689) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Had this beer poured from draft at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. This is a hop monster as the description says. Orange bubbly look. Loose head. My pallette is tainted from too many previous IPA

Indeed a balanced attack. Tons of breadiness and sweetness. Dank citrusy and bitter hops.

22 oz bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Poured slightly hazy amber into a perfect pint glass. Aroma of hay, and citrusy hops. Very bitter on the tongue, more grass and pine. Harsh finish. Decent IPA, but wouldnít seek this one out again.
