This is some seriously good beer...Did not expect much when I ordered it and even less when I saw it. Dont get me wrong-the appearance is beautiful but it doesnt look anything like a bold or hoppy good ipa. The light appearance masks an absolutely amazing hop profile that instantly made me think of Pliny. I think this stuff is actually bolder yet smoother than the elder...the lower abv explains the smoothness but I can't put a finger on the source of the bold goodness. Mouthfeel is very nice....I feel like this is an ipa even casual ipa drinkers would enjoy...you can taste the hoppy goodness but it still goes down incredibly smooth without more than a slight hint of bitterness.

If you see this, buy immmeeeed and enjoy!

My first trade beer! Also my first montana beer besides big sky.
Poured into my sierra nevada IPA glass and was blown away by the dankness of the hops. Came across as very "russian river" type IPAs (danky, resin, pine tree)... i was not expecting that at all; usually these beers with this type of aroma and freshness are talked about non-stop.
Very clear which was another surprise for being so hop forward.
Very clean and very well balanced with the bitterness being not upfront nor harsh... perfect.

Long story short... if they offered this in my area of Portland, i would order it more then a few i can usually find around here. Now if only i can start getting this around here.
