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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Post Expansion: West coast tangerine and pine favoring a lighter bodied IPA. Makes sense for Yakima to put out good hoppy beers
