22oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Rimmed with a thick white lace, slightly hop hazed golden amber color. Massive citric hop nose, from pulp to rind with some other suggestions of evergreen ... exactly where it should be for the style. Bitterness is pretty hefty ... 75 IBUs is very believable and right at the edge but not going overboard. The flavor from the hops is amazing with orchard citric ranging from rind to juice to blossom. Maltiness spikes here and there but seems to want to break through the most in the finish with a slight toasted breadiness. Alcohol is modest but warming with a quick toss in of fruitiness. Hops never lose their grip on the palate, finishes bitter and semi-dry.

Wow, what a killer IPA this is ... as I said, the hops are right on the verge of being over the top though if they were a little bit I would not mind. Balanced? Sure, for the style while pushing the envelope a bit.

4.54/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: Crystal clear gold with tinges of amber a thin head on top. Decent lacing and very little carbonation activity.

A: Floral hop aroma of grapefruit rind, peach and some pine with a clean, nutty maltiness backing it. Classic Amercian IPA.

T: A smooth bitterness upfront, moves into hop flavors of grapefruit and peach with some spicy and piney earthiness. The malt brings in fantastic balance to the hop flavors, helping give a backbone to the beer and really increase the drinkability. A medium body provides a great base for the flavors and the hops and slightly bisciuty malt flavors linger on with a dry finish.

Overall, a top-tier Northwest IPA. The flavors are bold and perfectly balanced, and the beer is unbelievably drinkable. This is a must try.
