Had this one at the Old Town Tavern in Ballard on cask . Never heard of these guys but once again it is great to have another new brewery producing good local beer. The pint was a golden orange colour with small head due to the cask. The nose was pure PNW hop heaven and the beer was spot on with the cask bringing out the hop flavours to the front and showing the quality of the beer. I hope to find more from these guys in the future as I see them becoming another Diamond Knot type local tap favourite

On cask at the Hilltop Alehouse, 3-Grid IPA is a dull, dirty gold with creamy off-white head that leaves heavy, foamy lace, really nice swiss cheese pattern early on the the glass, of course thinning a bit as it works down.

Smell is pretty pungent for a cask IPA, a nice mix of skunky weed and bright citrus.

Taste is good, robust IPA with a fair amount of hop flavor and a firm bitterness. Not quite as bright as the nose, it's obviously dry-hopped, probably in the cask. Malt is on the back seat her, some toast character mostly, the cracker / bread accentuated by the bitterness of the hops for a touch of char, in a good way, or perhaps more akin to wood/stem - sometimes this comes across as chocolate peanut butter cups on the finish to me, as it does a bit here.

Mouthfeel is soft and light bodied.

Drinkability is very good, a tasty PNW IPA that shows well on cask, very smooth. I could use a bit brighter of a hop flavor to match the nose, but I'm a fiend for that and really can't complain too much about the way pours on cask. Well done.

A: nice orange color, decent head with good retention and lacing.

S: Excellent hop aroma, not overpowering but substantial. Nice balance of pine and citrus notes.

T: Not overly bitter, but nicely hopped. Again a mix between the citrus and pine aspects. Well balanced with biscuity and slightly caramel-tasting malt.

M: Not overly bitter, but a nice resinous oily feel.

D: Very drinkable, this would be an ideal session beer for a hophead.

Overall and excellent example of a delicious and refreshing IPA.

On tap at Wedgwood Alehouse in Seattle.

Appearance: rich gold hue with a touch of cloudiness and a finger of creamy foam. I like it.

Smell: funky and citrusy hops with a little of the malt coming through. Pretty well-crafted.

Taste: quite bitter indeed. Funky hops on a biscuity, somewhat dry malt base. I like it; quite earthy.

Mouthfeel: medium body with lots of carbonation. I like the creaminess.

Overall: a sessionably tasty IPA. I look forward to having it again.

Pint purchased at the Baby Bar in Spokane for $2.00 (cheap micro night).

Received a pint that was a bright copper color with a finger's worth of bone-white foam.

Relatively sharp pine and citrus hop notes in the nose. Modest malty notes in the background.

Mixture of citrusy and piney hop flavors, with the citrus aspects winning out. More malty flavo than I would hav expected, but this is still the hops' show. Dry note at the swallow.

Medium bodied, with a resiny mouthfeel.

A typical, PNW take on the IPA style. I could have several of these in a row. If I see this again on tap, I wouldn't mind at all.
