Consumed 1/17/09 at January TCBA Gathering

I received this beer in a trade from northwestmark who told me they don't bottle but decided to do about 50 of them as a trial run. Poured a light golden yellow, a bit lighter than a typical IPA. The aroma was hoppy pine but not too overwhelming due to the only 62 IBUs. The taste was typical hoppy bitter but pretty sweet as well. Mouthfeel was creamy but fades quickly and drinkability was pretty easy. I'm not sure that I would ever drink this one again although it was fun to try something that most people haven't. I'd be curious to see what this is like on tap.

On tap at the Two Beers taproom. January 5th, 2012.

A: The beer poured a light amber color with a nice head of whtie foam that lingered. Lacing was similarly strong and clung to the sides of the glass.

S: There was a very light hop aroma with a hint of herbal grassy notes. The malt is heavy and overwhelms the hops at times.

T: The hops take a back seat to the hops. Neither ingrediants is overwhelming, but you cahn tell that this is more of a malt-forward
IPA.

M: Echo has a medium to light mouthfeel with decent carbonation.

O: The very first IPA brewed by Two Beers is back in rotation at the brewery. I find Evo IPA to be much better with more flavor, but Ech ois still worth trying.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a clear Gold Amber and leaves a nice set of lacing down the glass. Head lasts pretty long.

S- smells of pine and grapefruit, nice nose but would like a bit more aroma

T- Nice! Well balanced with a nice initial bitterness followed by citrus grapefruit and earthy hop notes, nice sweetness to it with a very clean finish.

M- Carbonation and mouth feel coats the mouth with hops just like I love.

D- Dangerous. Seriously this is a great session IPA. I would recommend this beer as a great go to IPA. Could use a bit more aroma but other than that pretty darn good.

Pint consumed at the Baby Bar in Spokane for $3 (happy hour price).

Poured a copper color with an off-white head. "Beer neglige"-type lace pattern was left on the glass.

Citrus hops in the nose, but not as amped up as I was expecting. There was a caramel-like, malty backbone that would have been fine in an IPA with a stronger hop scent, but here it's a little overdone.

The taste is all grapefruity hop bitterness. That's weird, considering that the nose led me to believe this would be a fairly mild IPA. While drinkable, I tend to dig a little more balance.

Medium bodied, with a slick, hop resin mouthfeel.

An odd beer. My first impulse is to suggest the bitterness be tone down, but then I think of the anemic nose and wonder if the bitterness was reduced, then perhaps there'd be nothing left. While drinkable, it's not something I'd want to try again with so many other IPA options available.

On tap at Waddell's. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance is a pale copper color and clear. Modest foamy white head and some dainty lace near the top of the glass.

Smell is a soft citrus fruity aroma. Actually smells a bit like a wit bier.

Taste is a sweet and sour citrus flavor with a bit of a wet paper taste along side. Bit of an earthy flavor to it, with a bitterness like stale cigarette butts.

Mouthfeel is thin and a bit watery with a dry lingering bitter aftertaste.

Drinkable if the aftertaste doesn't get to you. Not a great IPA.

Lighlty hoppy nose with a pretty good amount of butterscotch-y diacetyl. Pretty fruity yest effects too. The light hops is pretty wierd for an IPA.

Orange colored with very, very little head. And it's kind of cloudy.

Wow, really bitter. Citrus hops. I mean really, really bitter. Am I actually chewing on lemon pith? I do get a little malt around mid-pint but it is so faint under all the bittering oils. This is a classic example of tossing a s***load of bittering hops in the kettle and hoping for the best.

Medium bodied with a creamy carbonation level.

This is a tough one. There are hop freaks out there who don't like balance. I'm not one of them.

Poured into bubble pint glass. Poured a deep straw/light amber color, with 1/2 inch of slightly off-white head that dissipated quickly, leaving a surprisingly healthy amount of lacing.

A mellow, but solid, hop aroma greets the nose. Not overpowering but pleasant hop scents lead into a similar taste profile. The hops are there but play nicely with the malt foundation.

The body is a little fuller than is typical for the style, coating the tongue without abusing the tastebuds. Very drinkable, you would be able to have several of these without ruining your palate for other things.

Overall a solid, if average, IPA. Worth trying if you see it and a welcome addition to the regional beer scene.
