look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Light copper color, good perlage, good foam, creamy.
In the smell a good fresh hop. But easy and pleasant, not too overwhelming. Tangerine, lightly resinous.
More intense taste, citric and resinous, quite bitter. Pleasant.
Relatively light body. Easily drinkable.
In the aftertaste the citrussy note dominates.

Pours from the can a hazy orange with a nice white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Smells of pine and citrus, with maybe a touch of malt. The aroma follows the taste with hop-forward pine, grapefruit and a bit of sweetness. The malt does a nice job of moderating the hops without overwhelming them. Medium mouth with lots of aftertaste. I can't believe it's taken me so long to try this one. It's a very good IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: cloudy; bronze - a little darker than I expected; 2 finger egg shell head that receded slowly leaving a spotty film; nice lacing;

S: balanced; hops are predominant, especially pine, but malt is clearly there; pineapple in the background;

T: earthy, not at all like the nose; very little bitterness; an odd sweetness in the finish - not malty, more sugary - off putting;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: really liked it until I tasted it; when I expected it to get bitter, it got sweet instead; no date on can; perhaps it was old; I'll try it again as some point;

Serving type: can

Another great NW IPA. My can was about 3 months old.
A: a lovely red golden slight haze color with good off-white lacing. S: piney hops with some citrus. Not too much malt. T: pretty much aligns with the smell. M: balanced carbonation., no oily aftertaste. O: a nice example of a good NW IPA. Definitely would buy again.
