4.13/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
22 oz bottle with no freshness date that I see, but a reassuring story about how they are saving the planet :( Thanks for the bottle Myke! Poured into my beer goblet drank while eating some burger sliders on wheat buns.
Appearance: A nice looking golden copper color with a compact white head the width of one finger. Wonderful lacing.
Smell: Pine is the dominant hops characteristic. Citrus fruit (oranges, mostly) lingers behind the pine. Nothing from the grain bill in the nose
Taste: A very solid IPA. Balanced hops and body from the beer itself. The hops are prominent with being over bitter. This is a pretty tasty beer. The hops do take front stage here. A tiny bit of alcohol in the taste.
Mouthfeel: Body is big without being syrupy. Flavors coat the mouth very well.
Overall: I like this one quite a bit, and of course wish that I could get it here.

4.54/5 rDev +9.7%

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.
