Of the 38 breweries recently visited in WA, this IPA was my favorite! A perfect balance of hops to malt, rich but not too strong. Spectacular setting--take the ferry over and spend an afternoon in this scenic port town. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2007
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.

I’ve 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 wasn’t 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. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Slightly unusual IPA. Pine-centric with slight resiny undertones, but the maltiness has a sweetness to it atypical of the breed. Quite viscous for a lower ABV IPA (6% I believe). B+ -- A- if you consider it gives you an excuse to say "diggidy diggidy diggidy," ala Family Guy (coincidence that there's a woman on the label? I think not).

Great Beer! Brought back from my friend Chris after his trip to VAncouver Canada! Non commercial unique flavor. White creamy head, clear and sparkling, molasses and light aroma, full body slighlty fizzy, wonder character!

Orangey-amber colour. Woody, citric, piney hop nose. Clear, deep, woody, earthy bitterness meshes with slighty toasty breadcrusty malts. Finish is long, dry, woody. I am seldom disappointed with a PNW IPA, this one no exception. duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
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! beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Hood River Hops Fest 2008. They had a triple dry-hopped version on tap. Big floral citrus hop nose. This was really nice, all the dry hoping gave this a enormous hop flavor without a palate-destroying bitterness. Spicy and resiny in the finish, the citrus hops have an almost orange candy-like quality. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Light golden pour with a ring of white froth. Nose of piney hops and grapefruit. Smooth on the palate with a great hop flavor and a slight bitter finish. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2011
A coarser hop than the Peak’s beers. Cloudy appearance. This is another pretty decent Seattle IPA. Makes me want to try other Port Townsend beers.
