COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This northwest IPA is bold and balanced, with a rich malty flavor and a strong hop presence. We use premium 2-Row, Crystal, Munich and Victory malts to create the perfect base for showcasing Yakima-grown Columbus hops. After one sip you’ll agree, this is one hoppy bitch of a beer. 6.3% ABV 80 IBU

Very Balanced with a very forward malt profile and finishes with a good hop flavors and aromas....very sessionable IPA and is not over hopped like a lot of the IPA’s on the market today.

Rating #1990 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 92 - Bottleshare Pours a golden amber, decent caramel and citrus aromatics. Bitterness is somewhat subdued, especially given this is to be a hoppy bitch. More like a hoppy submissive that pretzels herself in front of you.

Sampled from the bottle and Winter Dabbler. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of grassy hops with a growing pine note and a bit of a bread backbone. Flavor has a decent amount of pine a bit of bitter citrus and a bit of grain backing.

highibus (786) - Vail, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours hazy deep straw with fluffy off white head. Nice aroma of resiny hops. Flavor falls flat. No perceived bitterness and lacking malt character just really lacking all around. Zero finish. Not good.

Bottle. Bright copper color with great clarity, thick sandy head. Thick sheets of lacing. The nose is pretty bright with citrus and pine. Toasty malts. A little malty sweet up front, then floral bitterness comes through. Light on the citrus… light on the hops actually. A little bready malt flavor comes through. Finishes with a lingering, but slightly soapy bitterness. Not a bad IPA, but when you say hoppy and come from the PNW…

Braudog (6312) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle. Orange-tinged beer with quite the rollicking head of foamy topping. This is more malt-forward than what many might expect from something with such an obtuse name. But there is also a healthy dose of woodsy, chewy hops, too. (#6061, 11/14/2015)

DuffMan (9505) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2015
Can. Orange-gold, low off white head. Malty, earthy, some orange, bitter finish. Lacking brightness. And stupid name.

Bottle pours a golden amber with a fluffy white top. Caramel, citrus and grain nose. Taste is citrus, pine resin and bitter. Nice

WABeerFiend (383) - - JUL 11, 2015
Draught today. A: Lots of grapefruit and pine. Tropical fruit too. A: 1 finger head. See through amber body. T: Pine and grapefruit dominate. Biscuity malt, tropical fruit, and resin are subtle. P: Crisp and too resiny. It’s a little too watery and not as bubbly as I like. O: It’s an ok IPA, but a little rough.

Dogbrick (11339) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Sample as part of a blind IPA tasting. The beer is a dark copper color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of floral hops, fruit and doughy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
