Handsome medium amber color with a decent foam in the Ommegang chalice. Plenty of carbonation and a nice sudsy mouthfeel.

A sweetness on the lips to start with some caramel taste. Some dark biscuity flavors emerge. Hops have a mineral taste and a subdued character. Overall, a warm and malty brew, but light bodied and quaffable. A salty tang with some leafy hops. Bitterness in the aftertaste but not strong.

This seems like the classic Northwest IPA with a more rounded flavor and less intensity on the bitterness. Actually a highly drinkable hoppy brew that pleases me more than the harsher IPAs. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.

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.
