5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer’s in Beaverton, OR. Crystal clear pour. Aroma is sweet, floral, piney, resinous, and a bit fruity, with hints of caramel and grass. Amazing! Perfect crisp mouthfeel with a gentle and balanced bitter bite in the finish. Perfectly sweet and bitter from start to finish. One of the best non-Imperial IPA on the market, IMO. Damn, these guys can brew.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle. This is a classic Northwest IPA. Has a piney-sweet aroma and a great ’in your face’ hop bite. This beer has a great balance to it and the sweet-bitter finish is just great!

Hoppy, but very smooth. One of my favorite IPAs. I’m not sophisticated enough to use all or any of the usual terms.

Bottle from Joe’s. Clear gold with lasting head and lotsa lace. Citrus and floral aroma with a touch of soap and bread. Tropical fruit honey grainy mild sweetness with assertive grapefruit rind bitter dry finish with just a hint of sweetness. Medium light body. Not sure why the low ratings. Pretty excellent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
CAN. Pours a burnished golden with amber mid-tones, average head, good lacing. There’s a very complex hop aroma profile that borders between slightly medicinal, herbal, dank, yet also shows some berry, citrus, a little bit of minty woodiness, and peach-like stone fruit. There’s a golden malty aroma as well, just slightly doughy. It’s got a bright flavor, mid-palate malt sweetness, and smooth end-palate bittering. Finishes dry and leaves a malt-ester aftertaste more than that of the hops. Very good beer.

12 oz can. 6 pack of them enjoyed over a couple days to be exact. Pours a clear golden color with a patchy fizz head. Mellow hops and grainy aroma. Just a delicious IPA. Really easy to drink a 6 pack of this. Nice hoppy finish. Great stuff.

Very nice IPA. Big citrus and pine on the nose. Nice balance and by no means is this a Hop bomb of an IPA. Subtle, but creamy mouthfeel and nice bitterness in the finish.
