HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bought this 22 oz. bottle at Bottleworks in Seattle. The beer pours a bright orange hue with a thick white head and sticky lacing. Loads of grapefruit and earth in the nose. There is a blast of juicy fruit/grapefruit in the flavor with a nice malt background to help balance the bitterness. Still there is a great earthy lingering bitterness at the end. Nice chewy mouthfeel and great drinkability. This beer was a nice surprise to me since I had never had Snouqualmie beers before. I will be looking for this one again for sure!

Bottle with Arun. First beer of the Seattle trip, and possibly the best! Nicely balanced, amber colour, some sweetness of malt and then lots of piney resiny hop bitterness with a long bitter finish. Its not messing around this, but if you want a PNW IPA this is what it needs to look like. Imagine drinking this surrounded by all those trees looking at the falls...

Panzuriel (2003) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Location: 22 oz bottle obtained through Tavour Appearance: Darker amber beer. firm head of off white bubbles that lingers. Nose: Not a very strong but definite hint of pine and floral hops. Taste: a balanced malt and hop presence pine and medium malt. Some lingering dry bitters on the finish. Body: Medium and softer carbonation Parting thoughts: Quite different than the anticipated hop bomb that IPA usually entails.

Capa (2843) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Copper with a firm, lasting off-white head. pleasant citrus with light caramel aroma. A nice soft hop bitterness that gives plenty of flavor and bitterness without being overwhelming. Dank (ugh, I hate that word but it fits here) and light citrus with a good dough and sweet malt base. Very enjoyable and expertly balanced IPA.

drpimento (3223) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Excellent appearance with a huge foamy frothy thick head and a clear amber color. Barely any aroma. Flavor is malty hoppy with a lot of butterscotch. Very drinkable.

22oz in Seattle. Darker orange, white foam. Deep piney citrus, thick and sweet. Nice but not complex. nice to come back to one of the first beers that got me into NW craft beer.

DinVT (28) - Vermont, USA - NOV 30, 2014
A decent, but not special, IPA. Considering this is WA, I had higher hopes. Nice lacing, and nothing dreadful here, but lacking in citrus overtones. Fine, but not special.

poisoneddwarf (2324) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is perfumy, skunk bud, pine, cat piss, grapefruit. Pours clear copper with a thick off-white pillowy ice cream float head with excellent retention; leaves curtains of lace all the way down the glass. Taste is mostly bitter (one of the more bitter IPAs Ive ever had) with not much malt sweetness to balance it out. Carbonation is high, mouthfeel is like sandpaper. Not bad, but it seems a little rough.

Home filled keg. A good solid nw style ipa. Not overly hoppy but a perfect mix of hop and barley.

Solid IPA. For a Northwestern brewery, the interesting thing here is that its relatively balanced between malts and hops (as opposed to being hop-centric), and furthermore, the hops are more resin-oriented -- unusual in an IPA of this low ABV. Good.
