I can't say enough about this beer
A beautiful golden haze color
strong hoppy bitterness with a hefty malty backbone to finish it out
Nose holds up to the taste; this one's a keeper, would recommend.
Looking forward to visiting this brewery soon.

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.
