COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the Vindicator mine in the Silver Valley, it is our biggest beer to date A refreshingly mild flowery start with a nice rich, malty sweetness that balances the citrusy hop finish. Coming in at OG 1.079 and 80 IBU the Vindicator packs a wallop. We use the finest malted barley grown in Idaho along with pacific northwest hops.

AmEricanbrew (6282) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle@ trailer. Clear amber color with ivory head. Tropical fruit, floral, sweet pale malt aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Tropical fruit, citrus rind, dry pale malt flavors---drying bitter finish___not bad.

Oakes (13294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at Toronado Seattle. Amber. A little bit dull and a bubbly head. Has some biscuity, caramelly aromas and woody hops. Similar palate, woody, a bit sticky, but nicely balanced. I hardly even miss the hop aromatics.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Floral herbal and vegetal hop nose on top of pale malt base. Some sugars are there also. Gold pour great lace nice head. Flavors of pale malt perfumey floral hops a little tanginess and vegetal notes too. Lingering tang and herb. Not my favorite.

22 Oz bottle. Pours a clear golden copper with a big foamy head and lace. By the way, I love these bottles that v are a little more than just a bottle. This one, for example, tells a story. Call me lame, but I feel like that adds to the whole beer enjoying experience. Aroma has toasty malts, and subtle bitter hops. Flavor is a lot of cereal hops, pine, and some light citrus. No complaints here. Just a solid IPA in my opinion. Iím okay with being the guy that likes it more than everyone else. Good stuff.

after4ever (6574) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
12-oz. Thanks, A! Pours a hazy light amber with a loose and sudsy light tan head. Mild oranges and tangerines on the nose, lots of sticky caramel malt sugars there too. Slippery medium body. Light carb. Caramel and some fruity notes on the mid palate. Sweetish finish.

luttonm (2909) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2015
22oz bottle in Seattle. Darker brown, rough foam. Mild mint hop aroma, brown malty body. Some bittering hops throughout, a little freshness at end. Citrusy notes but overall quite heavy and bland.

fiulijn (16214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Hazy amber color with small compact head. The aroma is mild, simple. It has a lean caramel profile, some malt flavor too, light residual sweetness, correctly bitter, with some hop resins; the final is just slightly nutty and with a hint of vegetables.
Decent IPA, clean, but it doesnít fully deliver the required hop freshness.

maxwelldeux (4137) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Draught at a random bar. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a very small head on it. Nose is very light, almost to the point of having nothing on it. Taste is slightly bitter, but again has minimal flavor. If youíre brewing an IPA to be as inoffensive as possible to the maximum number of people, I think this one hit it right on the head.

brenn79 (1688) - Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2014
16 oz draft at Carusos delI- Clear golden pour with minimal head. Aroma is moderate hops and generic malt. Taste is decently hopped up, solid bitterness throughout, light malt. Decent yet average.
