3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Yakima taproom, part of a flight. More typical of a NW IPA, big hops bite, medium weight body, fairly chewy. Better than the flagship IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can - Sweet biscuity malts and a decent amount of light hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Lots of malty sweetness and nice hop bite. Hops don’t really shine, although the balance is nice in the sweet and bitter. My can was a bit flat and under filled, may have been why hops are bit lost. Still decent though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a mostly clear dark golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is pretty light and hoppy with some grass to it. Taste is a bit crisp and fresher than the nose would imply, with a hint of sweetness up front and a moderately bitter finish. Decent drink.

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly dank single IPA from Yakima. Big pine resin filled nose. You can smell the hops. Flavor is a touch of pineapple malts up front moving right into a bittered hop vine vibe all the way through the finish. Great lingering palate.
