BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle: Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a puffy white head, almost a gusher. The hops are big and bright with a light citrus and pine element. Average flavor with a nice hop punch and some light crisp pale malts in the background. Clean and tasty though; fresh.

chuckstout (245) - Washington, USA - APR 17, 2014
Dank, floral, grassy aromas. Pours golden with a pillow top with dense white foam and good lacing. Light body, smooth at the start breaking into star fruit, pine, floral flavors and a nice dry bitterness.

skoisirius (1580) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2014
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.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of orange zest, citrus, melon, light spices, light fruits. Flavor of orange peel, melon rind, tropical fruits, citrus, clove, pale malts, peppery spices in the finish. Lots of citrus/citrus fruits, tart/zesty and interesting. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Lazerlobe (15) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Post Expansion: West coast tangerine and pine favoring a lighter bodied IPA. Makes sense for Yakima to put out good hoppy beers

Fresh batch on tap at the brewery. Big citrus nose and resin hints. Tastes was balanced yet bold. Maltiness melded great with the bitterness. No idea what changed but this is a much better beer than when I had it a few years ago. Well done!

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2013
OK IPA, but it has an awkward sweetness -- like a combo of caramel, sweet corn and artificial sweetener. Somewhat light bodied; mildish carbonation. Grassy, plant-like bitterness in the finish. Rind in the aftertaste. Some light toast in the background.

robforbes (2055) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2012
pours a clear light amber with a small egg-shell head, and good lacing. smell is of hops, some floral, dandelion, and malt in back. taste is creamy, caramel, hops, and malt. ends a little on the watery side.

Very good beer, after taste was just about right. Aroma was light on the juniper smell, but pleasant overall.

Smells great and tastes even better! Very light but hoppy. A very nice good skunky bitterness to this beer.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Golden hued amber, somewhat hazy, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Nose is somewhat hoppy, yet a little wet basement and a smidgen of cardboard.   Smells a bit musty/dusty.   Less of that on the tongue, but its there.   Decent hop bite, flavorful without being overly bitter.   Yeah, this is rather smooth too.   Growing on me as I sip more.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, despite it feeling fairly smooth.   Slightly more cardboard/mustiness on the finish.   Not a very hoppy IPA, not all that bitter, remains flavorful, but the cardboard and mustiness dectract a bit.   Meh, not bad.
