This crisp, hoppy Northwest IPA features Centennial, Cascade and Columbus hops that impart strong citrus hop flavors and aromas. Our Northwest IPA is balanced nicely with the use of crystal and victory malt. We finished this fine IPA with a heavy dose of dry hopping to lock in the all the intense flavors and aromas. This IPA is sure to satisfy the hop heads of the Northwest, so sit back and enjoy.

Bronze amber, light shimmering gold. The light sticky head & lacing. The aroma is earthy & perfume with some caramel malt. The flavor is bitter sweet with more hops. Finishes tangy, citrusy & hoppy, dry alcohol mouthfeel.

As far as an IPA should look, this hits the mark very nice in my opinion. Nice amber color with a great white head that lasts for a while leaving moderate lacing. Aroma was slightly malty, with good hop tones and citrus finish. Taste is very bitter with a slight citrus taste and a good hop content. A little too bitter for my taste but very refreshing on a nice day.

12oz bottle, ~50 degrees, brewed in Washington. Pours a light orange/yellow with a fluffy and firm white head. Very attractive. The head is almost merangue like as it recedes- makes wierd little bumps. Aroma is sharply grassy, slightly lemony, a tad soapy, a bit antiseptic. Not bad. Flavor is suprisingly malty, quite bitter but not harsh, has a bit of tangy hop flavor around the middle, but not much. Maybe a bit lacking in the flavor department for me. It is pleasent and refreshing though, good for a hot-ass day like today. It’s more of a NW pale ale than an IPA, aside from the sharp bitterness maybe.

Very sweet and fruity nose, not so much a hoppy aroma, clear bronze coloring with a thin creamy head, intense hop flavor, off to a good start, citrus, malty finish, not much of a complicated flavor but the hoppiness brings it up a few pegs for sure, I’m not saying this anything great but it definatly deserves a try, so ignore everything you learned in D.A.R.E. and listen to me, try it.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Amber with a little bit of white foam, with a deep earthy aroma, evergreen with traces of wet clay and soy. Immediate grapefruit flavor on the palate with traces of lemon, long piney, grapefruit aftertaste. Fairly extreme IPA, not balanced but definitely assertive and under the right circumstances, pretty good.

Looks nice in the glass, color of dark honey with a big off white head that has excellent retention. Aroma is lacking. Hoppiness is there, albeit, in a quite muted fashion. There is also a musty aroma in there that should pop with freshness. Flavor is better than the aroma. Flavor is mostly pure grapefruit juice with not a lot of malt balance. Palate is a bit thin. OK IPA, but there are many, much better examples of the style.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2004
Lively head large bubbles moving fast. Light fruity aroma, flavor is very refreshing a little sweet and fruity but also a bit tart. Alcohol is completely hidden 9% and I would honestly drink this on a hot day when thirsty

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Dark yellow color. Fizzy, not much head. Aroma is all pine and a little citrus. Medium mouthfeel. Hops come in with a sticky, spicy and slightly sour taste. A little alcohol up front, but not bad. Slight metallic taste in the finish. Ok beer.

An unusual looking hazy copper color with rocky white (slightly off-white) head. Earthy, ressiny hop nose with notes of citrus. Easy drinking but it doesn't pack that extreme hops the label promises. Watery on the palate with a nice balance of hops and malt flavors. I'd put this one in a new category, IPA Light.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2004
A somewhat nebulous deep amber to copper color as it sets in the glass, crowned by a majestic head that is light tan in color and semi-creamy in its consistency with a fine sheet of lace to seal off the glass. A pleasing hop floral aroma greets the nose, citrus or maybe lime like a better description, crisp and clean to the senses with a sweet malt tone also noticed, front is sweet, loaded with malt and the top fair to middling in its feel. Quite a big hop bite at the finish and the carbonation light with the hop floral flavor lasting long after the beer is gone, a pleasing to the palate beer, and a fine representative to the style.
