3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citrus and floral notes on the nose, caramel, toast, a little sweetness. Pours golden amber, thin head. Caramel, toast, citrus, pine, floral notes. All balanced more or less, nothing stands out as assertive or over the top. Drinkable. Kind of a run of the mill NW IPA.
