2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Triple Horn, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour are both very subtle, with herbal hops, some boiled vegetables, and a bready malt backing. Nothing wrong with this but it’s quite weak.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewery
Hazy amber color with compact head. It has a light fruity presence from the hops, old-style cascade, and fairy pungent hop resins; also a bit of animal character. It tastes like an old IPA. Not expected when drank at the source.

On tap. I quite enjoyed this. Medium bodied. On the maltier side of an ipa but a good dose of citrus and pine. Well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the tasting room. Pours medium amber with thick fluffy head. Aroma is nicely aromatic pine and citrus hops. Taste is bitter pale malts with thin pine hop flavor on the finish. Fairly low abv for a NW IPA, which they’re proud of. Also a shade darker malt than the typical IPA. Not quite in the class of Lucille or Trickster, but a solid local choice.

Draft at the brewery. Maybe i got this one super fresh, but the hop presence is awesome. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a loose whitish head. Big pineapple and mango nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Pineapple, mango, toast, and caramel on the mid palate. Nice oily hop presence. Long dry resiny finish.
