3.93/5 rDev +3.1%
on-tap, $3 pint at the tasting room
appearance: shaker logo pint, clear orange body, lifeless off-white head with no retention
smell: aggressively hopped, bright citrus, bitter and simple
taste: extremely hop forward, but a bit too bitter - citrusy, bitter pine, cracker malts. Good, but could be rounded out a bit to provide a cleaner hop profile
overall: good, but not without flaws noted above

Poured from the bottle into a tulip (thistle?) glass.
A burnt brown amber slightly cloudy, with a good three finger head off white in color with thin bubbles. Good scattered lacing on the glass. Quite nice looking.
Dry grain. Husky, and ripping barley sensations. Not so much hop presence going on here, but quite nice though.
Palate hits with much of the same flavor sensations on the nose. Dry, husky, ripping grain. Strangely feels a little burnt. A strong pine hop bitterness but not flavorful. Not much sense of sweetness to go along with this, it feels like a dry grainy hopped up brew. Mouthfeel is full with moderate carbonation, perfectly fine.
Overall though not much to say here, not recognizing and tropical or citrus fruit hop angle on this whatsoever as advertised.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden amber with a two finger off-white head that dissipates to a thick cap leaving light lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus hops, mild pine and mild bready malt. Flavor is piney and citrus hops, biscuit malt, finishes with lots of pine and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied. The malt takes a backseat to the hops, but gives sufficient support. I couldn't help wishing for a bit more malt to preserve the tropical fruit components in the aroma, which would have made this more balanced for me, although I do lean more towards malty IPAs. Nice hop bill and well balanced, a well made IPA now available in cans.

I heard they changed the recipe on this one. I don't remember trying this in the bottle before but now there are cans out there and it's worth picking up if you see it. It's not as hop forward as some other NW IPAs and the malt isn't assertive either but it really comes together nicely for a thirst quenching brew.

On tap at Vic's Pizzeria in Olympia, WA.
A- Translucent orange body with 1 finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving some decent lacing.
S- Big pungent hops and citrus tones. Very nice.
T- Taste is very hop forward and bitter. Not much malt to this one, but slight bread.
M- Nice carbonation for style but fairly thin.
O- A nice hop forward single IPA. I really liked this one. I would seek it out if it's in your area.
