Gently hoppy aroma. malt comes first but soon awash in hops. good carbonation (on draft at salmon row). more brownish than reddish in color. thin in body but the hops continue steadily. sourish finish

Draft at Piper’s Creek. This is another great Walking Man beer. Medium amber, leaning to slightly dark. Big sudsy white head. Some floral hop on the nose, but the attack is nice and clean and full of citric hops. The citrus hops just keep picking up speed through the finish, which is long, clean, melon-y, and finally a bit bitter. Fantastic stuff. A beautiful counterpart to Homo Erectus, in the exact same spirit.

IndianaRed (4647) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2006
<!-- B -->On Tap<!-- /B --> at the brewpub. Clear light medium amber. Very good offwhite head and sticky lacing. Aroma was a bit mild on the hops for the style, but nice and citrusy. Flavor was dominated by the citrusy hop bitterness. Fairly thin, soft feel with a long, late strong bitterness.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
[Tap – Fathers Day Brewery Tour 06] I slightly darker golden color with a light head. The aromas where very hoppy and the beer was clear. A good flavor for this beer. The balance between hops and malts where awesome.

As I moved through the sampler tray the beer got progressively better! Clear gold. Strong hop flavour. A nice hop aroma.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 On tap at Coopers IPA fest ’06 in Seattle.

Pours a light orange-brown with a limited head; the aroma is a slightly chalky citrus-peel hops. The flavor couples with the mouthfeel to provide a gloriously refreshing, very dry grapefruit-and-floral-hops IPA, with just a hint of peat-smoked whiskey.

This is a slightly out of the ordinary PacNW IPA in that we’ve got an exceptionally dry beer here without the common overhopped oily c-hop blast that characterizes many of the hoppier local IPA attempts. Instead, we end up with a beer that I might best describe as a seriously Pacific Northwest interpretation of the ideal session IPA. Very clean flavors, and absolutely spot-on.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2006
This is a very agressive IPA, it just comes out at you, and right out of the glass, big hop aromas, with the usual suspects grapefruit, orange rind, lots of light fruits and fresh pine trees. The mouthfeel, the flavors, the texture, on the palate, is just everything that you could ever want in an IPA. Peaches, apricots and orange rinds, and just enough, could be more of a malt backbone, but ample, very tasty!
