This is an ok beer, to off-balanced to be a Good IPA. If you are a fast drinker you might like this one but pause between taste and you will see the bitter stands alone on the finish and that is the balance off kilter! This would be a good beer to mix on a tasting of a cross section of PNW IPA's to make the difference stand out.

The 3 grid from Schooner poured a light orange almost straw color with a good finger foam head out of the 22oz bottle secured through whole paycheck. It had semi sticky lacing that kept to the sides of the pilnser glass I used to get full aroma.

The smell was good but a seemed a little too dominated by the caramel aroma which jumped out right away. You could get some citrus defined by a lemony smell. The taste followed with the caramel flavor. The mouthfeel was nice to me as it was not a sandpaper feel as some IPAs give you. Overall it was a really good IPA which I will buy again and plan on visiting the brewery when I am in Seattle next time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

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.
