Pretty good. Definitely northwest style. Bitter but finished a little sweet yet dry. Good stuff. Smell and appearance are what you expect for the style. No problems with it. Just not my favorite style of IPA.
Light aromas of cereal and lemon. Nice and bitter, finishes dry, oranges, lemon, tangerine, some scrubby pine and a plain backing malt. natejgood (510) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Pours a darkish golden orange with a nice sized head that is also slightly orange. The beer is hazy in the glass. Between the head, the color and the hazy completion this beer looks like it has good body. Aroma of tropical fruits and a slight amount of molasses and caramel. The molasses and caramel comes through in the flavor, backed up by a decent hop punch. Not exactly crisp in the mouth, but not overly thick either. chinchill (4995) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2017
