TBB’s IPA is malted towards the dry side, making it quite quaffable (yes, that’s a technical term) rather than malty and hard to get through. It is quite pale in color and has a slightly toasted malt character. Five different hops are used during the brewing and dry-hopping for this IPA, giving it a moderately complex aroma with strong citrus and floral notes and a hint of pine.

Draft pour pint at the 192 lake trail taproom. IPA day so I thought I’d walk next door and grab a draft pint of something to celebrate. Since today isn’t session IPA day, this one was my winner. Pours a light golden orange color with almost no head. Hop forward aroma, and smells fresh. Medium body, well balanced IPA with a bitter finish. Pretty standard overall. Hop flavor is nice throughout. It’s good.

Bottle from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham
The bottle opens with a prolonged hissing sound, and it pours a cloudy golden color with excessive frothy head.The aroma is a bit spicy (the yeast), the hop is sweaty. Dry mouthfeel, with some malt flavor, strong bitterness, a tannic and woody feeling, spicy, pungent; the hops are lemony.
Could have been a good beer, but there are many signs that it’s lightly infected and off.

Solid, well balanced IPA. Nice malt body. Hoppy flavors are well balanced between pine, resin, and some citrus. Bitterness is present, but not over the top. Very drinkable.

Bronze body, a bit hazy, thin head. Breezy hop nose that begins like an island zephyr, but then transforms into steamy, oxidated staleness. Very bitter body, accompanied by oxidated carbodard right from the start.

Bottle from 5000. Pours a cloudy brownish orange and a slight white head. Aroma of apple juice. Taste is bitter but not overly harsh. Very different from most IPAs. Lighter body. Not my thing on this one.

Draught @ The Pine Box:   Darker golden, pale haze, a little dirty, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Sweet pith on the nose, citrus peel, and soft pine.   Raw on the tongue, assertive without being too bitter.   Citrus oriented, nice malt balance.   Goes great with this pretzel.   Really zesty.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Strong citrusy finish, pith and peel, moderate sweetness.   Decent local IPA.

Dract at 193. Pours a hazy burnished medium amber with a nice dense and.creamy whitish head. Nose smells like a mix of salt air and grapefruit peel. Oyster ipa? Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sea air, grapefruit, toast, and caramel on the mid palate. Long sharp bitey dry finish.

Taster @ PNA Summer Beer Taste 2012. Totally drinkable IPA. I actually prefer my IPAs to be more malty (perhaps too malty) and so this one did not stand out for me much at all. The guy pouring it seemed really nice. Where does that go in my score?
