22oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer is hazy yellow in color and carries a large white head. Smells like the inside of the hop freezer at your local homebrew store on brew day -- fresh! Green and grassy. Flavor starts out mild but a couple of distinctive bitter notes pick up in the middle of the palate and linger there for a while. First I notice lemon peel. BITTER lemon peel. Not much fruit juice here. And second an intense, grainy, rye flavor. I would guess this is an 80 IBU beer, and with very little residual sugar to balance it out (their website claims 77. WYD?)

The good news is that unlike many Washington IPAs the hop character in this beer is pretty interesting, not merely a Cascade bomb. The bad news is that this beer is as bitter and unbalanced as any of them. For me, not my favorite.
