I cant help it -- I just like dry-hopped IPAs. This may not be an exceptional one, but its an enjoyable one. What can I do?

Pours a relatively light amber with a small pure-white head and very mild carbonation. The nose is relatively subtle by PacNW dry-hopped IPA standards. Nice floral aromas, cut hay. Mmmm. The flavor is almost subtle by local standards. Rather than a hop blast, I get a mild sweetness from the malts, light-bodied with lots of peppery spice (but not strongly peppers, as in e.g Mac & Jacks IPA). My first sip was the least pleasent of the batch, with the slightly vegetal notes coming through too strongly, it was improving from there. Mouthfeel is light, almost restrained.

Not a bad IPA, and I like the dry-hopping. Certainly the best of the Port Townsend beers that Ive tasted thus far. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

Draft at Fiddlers 12/3/09. Yeah, pretty much what it says above.
Draft at Fiddlers 2/1/10. Nice subtle mango / tropical fruit in the nose, lurking below the herbal dry hopping. Id have called this more like 3.6-3.7; Ill bump upwards.

pours a cloudy amber-orange with thin egg-shell head, good lacing
smells of grapefruit hops, some caramel, some floral, citrus, dandilion.
taste is thick, some grapefruit, some orange, caramel, some pine, malt in the back, nice bitterness that grows as you drink.

Ive never looked at a beer under a halogen desk lamp but damn, this beer has tiny bubbles and tiny suspended gold flakes - almost looks like suspended tiny bubbles. The beer itself is golden but the gold dust really is unique! Miller would die to have a beer that looks like this! Initial hop aroma was huge and somewhat sweet. Bitterness wasnt what I might expect from Skippy but the finish is totally luscious - sort of like a long lingering embrace after a night with the one you love. A perfect beer to go to bed with.

22oz. Bottle (THANKS glkaiser): Aroma is lightly sweet, with scents of citrus and pine hops. Poured amber in color with a large, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Very good lacing. Sparkling. Tons of particles. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops and citrus. Not much malt flavor. Light to medium body. Watery texture. Average carbonation. Medium duration hop finish with a hint of caramel malts. Overall, a slightly below average IPA.

Very hazy amber...almost the perfect color for an IPA. A lot of yeast settlement at the bottom, along with a few floaties. Hops are very clear here: grapefruit, cedar, and some fresh fruit. Nose is hop-forward, as well. Not an overly bitter beer (if there is such a thing), well balanced, and well done. Yeast is present in the finish, along with a bit of alcohol and dry hops. Very nice!

Gold amber, with a thin white head. Very heavy apricot and peach in the aroma, with a nice dose of hops. Taste is a strong peach accented by hoppiness, light pine, some floral. Solid IPA.

Nice citrus and pine aroma. Pours a very nice orange color. At first taste, very nice but does not linger on the tongue, finishes weak, but Id drink another.

Inviting citric aroma with slight pine wafts above this hazy, medium golden colored ale with nice carbonation and a thick, rocky white head. Delightfully refreshing hoppiness, mostly citric lemon and lime and some pepper spice. Well balanced with juicy fruit sweetness, fairly pale flavor without any overwhelming distraction of caramel and crystal. Leaves my tongue happy. This is real nice. Thanks Andr!

Pale golden yellow with small head. Strong hop aroma right off the bat, no screwing around. Big c hop aroma is not quite matched in the taste, but is still pretty strong. Just seems a bit thin. Bitter finish. I dont get any sweetness out of this at all, pretty much just hops; Thats ok with me though:-)
