The menu says, "A true NWIPA with an orange/copper hue for a citrus nose leading to an abundance of Northwest hop flavor and enough malt to back it up." A bit wordy, but otherwise not a bad writeup for a menu placard. To that I would add that the beer's (intentional?) undercarbonation feeds a big puffy mouthfeel similar to a cask conditioned ale. It has solid balances with a graceful hop medley (from Cascade, Cluster, Palisade, and Simcoe) and the flaunted lace characteristic of Hop Valley beers as a whole. An excellent example of the style.
