COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle pours a cloudy golden orange with a one finger white head and good lacing. Aroma is of citrus and tropical fruit. Flavor is a delicious malty citrus and fruit. Bitterness fairly mild and the aftertaste is a touch medicinal, but overall this is quite good.

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.

SDbruboy (1863) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear topaz with a large white head that diminished mostly. Sweet fruity malt aroma with hints of caramel and plenty of floral and citrus hop notes. Citrus and piney hops dominate the flavor with some of the caramel malt evident as well. Nice grapefruit peel finish. Light to medium body and creamy carbonation. A very pleasant IPA

Quite a potent IPA, I actually really appreciated this one. If you’re not a hophead you’ll hate this brew. But if you are, I highly recommend that you indulge yourself. Delicious.

FlacoAlto (4220) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2005 Pours with a thick frothy pale tan colored head that sits atop a ruby tinted, clear copper colored beer. The aroma is quite interesting, a mix of citrus, pine and spicy basil, with notes of artichoke and perhaps some asparagus as well. Is the aroma off or just an interesting mix of hops, I am not too sure. There is also a caramel-type, malty background note in the aroma as well. The taste is sharp and hoppy from start to finish, especially in the finish where the bitterness really comes through with a bracing note that grabs the tongue and mouth and keeps a sharp grip on your palate. The beer has a bit of malt to it, actually a fair amount it is just hard to sense over all the hops, with notes of caramel and toasted biscuits.

The hops you ask, yes they are here and in full force with notes of bold pine, sharp herbs, hints of mint & basil, a backdrop of grapefruit, and a bracing astringency. This is a really nice example of an over-the-top Northwest IPA, as promised it perhaps is a bit too hoppy, but for some reason my palate is perfectly willing to accept its bracing brashness, you definitely need to be ready for a hop onslaught though.

Aroma of citrus, and perhaps floral, hop. Amber color with an off-white head that laced a bit. Starts with medium body, mild carbonation, and floral hop to die for. The finish is nicely bitter. Forgot to notice the malt, but on reflection it was there. The effect is to make the mouth want to stand up and dance. It is drinkable liquid hop. More so than some so-called DIPAs. As the label says, refreshingly bitter.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours an amber orange color with an off-white foam head. An aroma of grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Sweet caramel taste with a smooth hop hit. Resiny bite on backend.
