Picked this up at Bottleworks over the weekend... Shared with reinheitsgematt tonight...
The nice fella at Bottleworks suggested this and his bigger brother as the cool hopcentric beers they had in stock at the time.
Pours a dark golden... great head and lacing.
The nose is fantastic... tropical fruity hoppiness and a very light pale malt backbone... The aromas are great.
Flavor mirrors the nose with a surprisingly mild bitter bite that is only balanced by the onslaught of hop flavors... again, this is pretty special.
Body and carbonation are very nice.
This brew is a damn near perfect example of a balanced PNW IPA... loving it.
Bomber thanks to trade with Andre, 5000! Pours a clear golden brown with thin wispy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of bready grain, hint of caramel, mild piney hops. Taste follows, a bit of citrus hop added and the smallest hint of a diacetyl precursor. An old school style bitter malty IPA, but solid for what it is.

From a 22 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of pine and tropical fruits. Bitter finish. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 28, 2016
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of bread, citrus, caramel, and florals. Flavor of caramel, grapefruit, bread, and grass with a dry, bitter finish. Capa (3631) - DC, Washington DC, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Deep orange with a white head. Grapefruit, toasted malt, sweet caramel, resinous hop oils, some floral sweetness. Bitter, nearly harsh finish on the tongue. Full bodied. Enjoyable. Craftbrewhaha (80) - - OCT 1, 2015
I love this IPA! Delicious, resiny, piney, Northwest IPA. You can’t get anything wrong from this brewery in my opinion!

Pours golden with modest head from bomber. Smell is great with malt and grapefruit taking over. Easy drinking and solid citrus grapefruit finish. Could use a touch more bitterness but solid. simonblaine (593) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours dark brown, good head. Aroma of malty dried fruit. Tastes malty, hoppy, fruity, piney. Really good. BuckeyeBoy (8861) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 24, 2015
On tap pours out a crisp golden topped with a sand head. Nose is pine citrus hops and some caramel malts. Taste is more of the pine citrus hops and a nice sweetness. Ferris (17120) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Draft - Lots of grapefruit and peel. Clear gold with a decent white head. Bitter, resin, peel and more long lasting bitterness. Really bitter, but OK. fdemmer (171) - - MAY 28, 2015
