Another bottle picked up in the PNW. Pours a deep tangelo color with a thin head that left a little lace on the glass. The nose is citrusy; tangerine, grapefruit, and tangerines. I didn't get the pine, but a little hop grassiness. Initial taste is that grapefruit, lots of hops, and some light malt, I didn't pick up on biscuit. The mouthfeel is a little light for the style, and there's almost no heat from the alcohol. That said, a 22oz serving will clearly take it's toll. I'm not sure about the 100 IBU's, because I didn't get the "blow your head off" hops that you'd expect.
Overall, I liked this beer, even though it doesn't fit the profile. Very drinkable!

3.71/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours an amber/hazy orange color with a white head roughly one finger in height.
Aroma: The abundance of hops in the beer give off strong earthy and floral aromas. Some subtle grapefruit aromas are present as well.
Taste: Similar to the aroma with some strong hop flavors. The citrus is more present in the taste but the earthy and floral notes are still fully there. Almost no malt in the flavor so the freshness of the hops can be appreciated.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer with a smooth mouthfeel that makes it very drinkable. For a beer with 8% ABV, it is very smooth and pretty refreshing.
Overall: A very good NW IPA. The freshness of the hops is wonderful and not overpowering in the bitterness aspect. Very drinkable and a good beer to drink on a summer evening. It also has one of my favorite names of any beer.
Serving type: on-tap
