fiulijn (20938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham, WA
Amber color with medium sized compact head. It has a moderate aroma of malt, unmalted cereals, light aroma of earthy hops, very light chamomile. The mouthfeel is quite smooth; the caramel and cereals profile is not bad but rather simple; the residual sweetness is very low, and luckily there seem not to be traces of crystal malt; the hopping, though not impressive, has some nice traits of citrus fruits and chamomile; correct bitterness level, overall balanced.
In the beginning it seemed boring, then some more interesting side appeared.

mcberko (18422) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
On tap at the Grain & Gristle, pours a clear golden / copper with a small ring of white head. Aroma and flavour of woody notes and slightly bitter hops – not typical West coast at all. More woody-dominated than a standard IPA, without much of the classic piney, resinous quality. OK, but quite weak and low drinkability due to the woody quality.
