On tap @ Malt and Vine. Pours dark golden with thin head. Aroma is light hops and bready malts. Taste is crisp citrus hops with balanced caramel toasted malts. Both the hops and malt stick with you through the finish. Maybe the fact that you can only get this on draft makes this better? Either way, one of the top 2 or 3 Washington IPAs around.
Draft at SEA airport. Normal visuals for an American IPA, golden and standard-looking. This has a heavier malt component than most in the class, even having an almost leathery component. (#6865, 1/5/2018) ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2017
Drat at Black Bottle, Bellevue, 11/29. Clear golden-amber color with an off-white head. Pine, caramel, and a citrus. Moderate bitter. Pretty good overall. stevoj (5867) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2017
Bottle from Safeway. Pours out a bright orange, golden, lasting foamy head. Aroma is citrus, malts, some light bitterness. Taste continues with minor sweet malts, oranges, mild hoppiness. Incredibly smooth. Tasty too. WVHouseofBeer (1108) - West Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2017
A standard IPA.....pours an amber color with a small white head that didn't leave any lacing. Good aromas of citrus, some pine and caramel. Fair amount of bitterness balanced nicely by the sweet malt backbone. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Tap at the Seattle airport. Bright orange pour with a white head. Too malty, picking up coriander in the background too. Not great.

Bright yellow/amber with off-white foam. Nose is lemon, grass, and a really bready, boring malt. Taste is mostly caramel with earthy resin. Light bodied, smooth, and creamy. It’s drinkable and inoffensive but not particularly memorable. Vasquezee3 (1) - - AUG 11, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 Clean Amber appearance. Very aromatic head. Clean bitter finish. Does not linger. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2017
Translucent copper with a dense persistent off-white head. Flavor is bready malt with a touch of caramel, softly piney hops, clean fermentation, and bitter leafy finish. Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Crisp minerality. Mineral-sharpened bitterness eventually takes over and supresses all else. jtclockwork (17631) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2017
