Bottle from Chuckís.

Straightforward Pac NW IPA. Tasty but unexceptional; Amarillo and Simcoe donít do as much here as I would have hoped.

22. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. Mild fresh pine nose, very forest-like aroma. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, iced tea, and a heavy resiny finish. Not bad but the dryness and crystal malt compound each other and make the finish a little harsh.

Bomber. Pungent and bitter. Resiny pine, citrus and caramel. A bit flat. Solid IPA bitter finish. Tasty.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light amber, with big frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops and caramel malts. Flavor is incredibly well balanced between the sweetness of the malts and the bitterness of the hops. You really can taste the freshness of the hops. This is one of the best balanced beers Iíve ever had. Well done!

Zeswaft (1481) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Cloudy copper color. Aroma is piney and floral. Flavor is more or less equivalent to the evolutionary IPA just that itís a little more balanced and the hops linger a little longer. Another great hoppy beer from Two Beers.

ACHops (977) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap @ Two Beers tasting room. Pours light amber with thin lingering head. Aroma is earthy grassy hops. Taste is big, crisp, clean hops with notes of pine, citrus, grass. Nice caramel malt body. Doesnít have that juicy wet hop taste that some fresh hop beers do, but tasty with some serious hop complexity regardless.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bomber of 2012 Release. Light copper and gold colored in appearance with a good inch of beige foam. The nose is on the mellow side for a fresh hop and is mostly pine resin, grapefruit and tangerine. The flavor starts out with a dose of orange rind, pine and ruby red grapefruit along with some bready malt and floral hops notes at the end. Mouthfeel is mildly creamy with moderate carbonation and a bitter, citrus heavy finish. Similar to their IPA but with a little bit more of a spicy hops kick to it.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Amber, slight haze, strong frothy head, off-white, nice lacing. Fresh hops on the nose.   Yeah, that pretty much covers it.   Perhaps faint resin or citrus zest, but minor.   Freshly squeezed hop juice up front, mild to moderate sweetness, not too bitter while remaining flavorful.   Falls a tad flat on the tongue tho, could use a little more lively carbonation, but other than that its tasty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft hops linger.   A nice flavorful fresh hop beer, without being overly biting.   Could use a little more carbonation tho.
