Not much superlative to say about this beer, a below average IPA from the Pacific Northwest. Pours amber with a medium white head that leaves a trace of lacing. Aroma is sweet, grainy and with just a touch of citrus hops. Flavor is also sweet with only a slight hop bitterness. With a watery body, this IPA has been bested by other brewers in the region.
Serving type: on-tap

This ipa advertises itself as "bold;" perhaps they are referring to the fact that it is an ipa, it is not dark, and it does have a 6.2 abv. It advertises itself as heavily dry hopped, but that is simply not apparent in the front taste; in fact, the front taste is curiously absent. On the backside, you get your dryness and your hops, but not the satisfying bitter back a good hopped ipa will give you. On the other hand, despite the abv, this strikes me as a good session beer, where it's lack of full character is an advantage; it's really not so very bold. A decent value for the price, but not a beer that someone, looking for a new beer respect "wow" will savor without the question: "Where's the beer?"

This beer is perfectly fine. If you need a quick IPA and this is all that's on, grab it.
A: Great head retention w fat finger of healthy off-white head slowly lacing the glass.
S: Not much. What's there is creamy, flowery hops with a bit of pine.
T: Sweet, oily hop forward: part floral and part citric. Good with bitter-sweet, asian food.
MF: Sweet, creamy, smooth with a moderate body and nice carbonation. Good grassy finish.
Half way between APA and IPA, a solid staple. I'd drink it again.
