COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an agressively hopped IPA that features the fruity Centennial and AMarillo varieties. Even massive dry hopping can't hide a rich, full bodied malt palate with toast and toffee notes. The finish is hoppily bitter and somewhat dry. This IPA demands respect.

Medium orange color. Medium head. Aroma is floral hops, and fruit. A full bodied IPA. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are floral, grapefruity and dry. The dry hopping brings out the helps balance the malt sweetness. A nicely balanced, bone dry, somewhat bitter IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is bitter

On tap at Brouwers. Cloudy amber with minimal head. Sharp pine hop aroma and taste...balanced and not over the top. Sweet malt comes through in the end.

On tap at Trumpeter’s Ale House in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a deep amber-orange body with a nice creamy head. Perfect mesh of citrus floral hops and malt underpinning. Perfectly built IPA.

On tap at Palace Kitchen in Seattle, WA - Pours a beautiful amber color, almost orange in appearance. Aroma of grapefruit/citrus zest, with a flavor of nice, well-balanced fruity hops. This isn’t a super-hoppy IPA, but a very well-rounded beer that is very enjoyable to drink.

draft @ uber - cleansed my palate with this very nice dry-hopped IPA; bright orange with foamy white head bringing out the sweet, citrus hop aromas; love the big hops from the dry-hopping without the excessive bitterness in the flavors

Sweet Zombie Jesus, what a good beer. I am so impressed by this beer and sad that the brewery is farther away than a nice bike ride. The floral essence of this beer canot be downplayed. Ends with a wonderful dry pine finish. The body is complimented by some nice amber malt notes. Oh my.

Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Orange/amber with not much head. Fairly vacant nose, medium body with light carb. Fruity palate--orange, among other citrus delights. Purely bitter resin hop finish. Classic, delicious, beautifully done IPA.
