The aroma is a wonderful bouquet of citrus. The alcohol is initially disguised by the aromatic hops and perfectly blended malts. For this reason, I like to call this brew "deceptive". The initial flavors of blended hops and malt are so awesome, you never notice that it is a 7% ABV. Sneaky.
Their web site has posted the ingredients, so I'm going to attempt to make this beer.

Amber with a touch of orange, slightly hazed in the Einbecker flute. Attractive foam and quite spritzy on the tongue. Aroma is inviting, with flowery notes and papaya.

On the malty side with some distinct sweetness. Hops are dank and herbal with a grapefruit finish. Bitter aftertaste. Some bready flavors with fruity melon and long aromatic tang. This is quite bitter but should be appreciated by the hop enthusiast.

The malt and sweetness would suggest an imperial IPA. It even tastes stronger than 7 percent. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Received as an extra in a trade from Bobsliquors.

Quick review. Solid IPA. Glad to have tried it, but nothing overwhelming about it. Fresh hop, mild citrus aroma and taste. Very nice mouthfeel. Good carbonation. Solid effort from old,schoolhouse.

Picked this up at Bottleworks over the weekend... Shared with reinheitsgematt tonight...

The nice fella at Bottleworks suggested this and his bigger brother as the cool hopcentric beers they had in stock at the time.

Pours a dark golden... great head and lacing.

The nose is fantastic... tropical fruity hoppiness and a very light pale malt backbone... The aromas are great.

Flavor mirrors the nose with a surprisingly mild bitter bite that is only balanced by the onslaught of hop flavors... again, this is pretty special.

Body and carbonation are very nice.

This brew is a damn near perfect example of a balanced PNW IPA... loving it.

4/4.5/4.5/4/4.5
