4.06/5 rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from bottle into rocks type glass thing in my hotel room.
Nice thick-ish head sits atop for a while and laces nicely. Clear, just shy of amber coloration. Aroma leans to the tropical side, but some resinous tones are there as well. Taste starts off really malty, but bitterness isn't far behind. This is a pretty bitter beer that needs the strong malt backbone to bring it through. Mouthfeel consists of good but not too much carbonation with a thick, chewy, looong finish. Satisfying and even though you know with the assertive malt that it's going to be high gravity and even with the aggressive hopping, it comes across smooth and drinkable.
Serving type: bottle

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
