on tap-pours a foamy off white head that laces and yellow/gold color. Aroma is light malt. Taste is mild medium malt, light hops. Light side of medium body. The pattern picks back up, some diacytl (otherwise the yeast).

On tap at The Rock in Lynnwood. Pours a clear amber with a lacy white head. Almost no nose. Nice APA hoppy character, but it seems to be suffering from a little butter in the taste. Bitter-crisp finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Lynnwood location. Pours medium gold with a thin white film that leaves a thin but bountiful sheet of lace around the glass. Neutral nose, maybe some sweat in there. Medium/light body with soft, mouth-filling carb. Light, herbal hops show up on the mid-palate and persist though the finish. Nice but needs a ton more complexity.

The bartender first poured me a sample of this next to the IPA and this was definitely darker with more sediment. Big fresh hoppiness here, I’m fairly sure there is ample dry-hopping at the brewery. The palate lends itself to a more grasssy chracter with slight chalkiness. I found the extreme hopping to be a very good palate cleanser for the super garlic cheese sticks. A very palatable IPA, the bitterness never grows tiresome, but rather gains appeal as the beer warms. Very classy pale, very big pale.
