Finally, the last of Gil's IPAs.

A: The beer pours golden in color with a white head.

S: Wow, moderately hoppy. Amazing. That's not to say this beer is without the seemingly necessary pounds of caramel, toffee, and bread. A bit of citrus peel and pine are the hop aromas.

T: Toffee and brown sugar with just a little bit of hop flavor. There is a touch of grass and pine, only a moderate bitterness. The flavor is not as good as the aroma, which was only barely acceptable.

M: Medium bodied with just a medium carbonation.

O: This one gave me some false hope, but it was another failure.

A pretty standard IPA. Hazy amber color, with a nice off-white head that doesn't stick around long. Not much in the way of aroma, but the taste is pleasant enough, although quite bitter. Some residual sweetness helps balance things out, but it's still a little too bitter for me.

From a paper review last week .... Poured into my Cigar City snifter... nice white head.... good retention and lacing.... the brew is orange with a slight haze.

Nose shows sorta malt muted citrus and floral hop notes.... there is plenty of hop presence, but it is stunted by a fair amount of pale and toasty malt.

Bitterness shows up front and doesn't let go until long after the sip... bitter throughout. a decent floral/citrus hoppiness comes out toward the finish but is pummeled by the bitterness...

Body and carbonation are about perfect.... I doubt I would buy this one again unless I can guarantee it is fresh.

Appearance has a hazy copper amber color supporting a nice healthy head leaving fair lace behind. Smell of sweet malt mixed with the citrusy grapefruit and pine. Taste has a robust grapefruit bitter that follows through the aftertaste with a fairly balanced malt backbone. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall there's nothing really extreme or complex here, just a good Pacific Northwest IPA.

Medium to big off white head slowly recedes leaving a biscuity aftermath above a clear copper caramel colored beer.

Light citrus and grassy style hops coming through above all else in the aroma which also has a bit of sweeter caramel malts with a hint of yeast sneaking in.

A dry tasting beer with light sweet malts being the backdrop for the grassy and light citrus hops taste that is in the forefront with each drink of this beer.

A drying aftertaste that bring just a bit of the tastes of this beer along for the ride with this medium bodied beer.

A little light on the tastes but generally not a bad glass of beer.

Golden brown pour. Frothy 1-inch head. Lots of cascading bubbles.

Interesting nose: Chardonnay, citrus and wild peppers.

First sip brings a stable malt, pretty nutty.

Hops are nothing special: a bit bitter, a tad floral.

Overall a decent brew, but very average and forgettable for an IPA.

I'd order it if it were the only domestic craft beer on the menu.

Bright light amber color with a rocky head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing.

Subdued aroma with a bit of grassy hops and caramel. Flavor of grassy and piny hops on a light body. The bit of caramel in the aroma doesn't translate into any malt flavor or body.

Light body that seems a little thin for the hops. Seems more like a hoppy pale ale than an IPA. Nice shot of hops but not really that satisfying as an IPA.

22oz bottle thanks to Harrymel, appreciate it. Hazy orange color, super milkshake-like head, good lace. Smells slightly hoppy, a bt of malts running around, eh. The flavor had a real nice bitterness to it but that was all I could pick up from the hops. Malts were there but ambiguous. Overall, not a bad IPA but not what I'm looking for from the Northwest.
