COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, bold copper-colored ale showcases Munich & Crystal malts to create a big supportive body on which we layer our favorite Washington hops. Chinook & Cascade provide citrus and piney flavors, while Northern Brewer adds a hint of mint. Dry-hopping with Cascade and Columbus increases the beers hoppy aromas. Malt, hops and yeast-derived fruitiness combine to create our most complex offering.

I sampled this on a 5 ounce sample flight. I had to buy a bottle and take it home. I really enjoyed this one. It pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. Very bitter with a smooth slightly caramel finish. A very good ipa.

Bottle at Craigs. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Aromas of dank, resinous hops, pith. Taste is solid ipa territory, skunky finish.

Alengrin (4698) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle at GBBF. Thick, yellowish, creamy, lacing, frothy and very stable head over a deep orange blonde, almost amberish beer, darker and more red than average for the style - red IPA? Aroma of strawberry, lots of tangelo, pine resin, grapefruit peel, passionfruit, green tea, mango, caramel, toasted pine nuts, baked banana. Cleanly fruity and malty inset, bit toasted and biscuity like the amber colour already announced, fizzy but smooth with exotich fruits retronasally as well as a deep grapefruity and piney hop bitterness, very long, very aromatic but harshly bittering as well, resiny with some minerally saltiness, abrasive, very herbal and lasting for a long time. Quite an agressive IPA, but I liked it.

Drinking this mostly as a chaser to that nasty smoked ale just before - like seriously, that stuff just does not jive with my goods. I gotta tell ya. This has a very nice head- strong and sitting on top of a decent brown body with no carbonation. Aroma is sweet hops, typical hops, decent hops, American hops; yeah, theres no layering here but it screams craft beer IPA like al the rest. Flavour is a decent balanced mix of hops with a hint of malt. Just okay, well made, but hard to pick out of a crowd.

Dam nice diverse cratery head. Good depth color. Springy pineyness. Nice foaming frostiness. Aftertaste, alcohol.

Bartzilla (621) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Very solid NW ipa. Ive had 2 beers from this brewery and thought both were outstanding for the region. Typicall I expect the NW pales and IPS to be a little towards the maltier side, but these are much more hop forward. This is a crisp and easy chugger. Digging it.

pinkzambia (1903) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle - Compliments of Indiana_Reds wife - Semi clear gold with a white head. Hoppy aroma with a off beat citrusy flavor and solid hop bitterness on the trailer. Pretty good.
