it's good to be black

a: bomber split into a shaker pint, producing a nice little head of off-white carbonation that retains a good layer, the beer itself a pale golden-amber in color

s: pale malts with some bready notes, nice hop aroma in good balance - orange, tangerine, passionfruit - floral and vivid

m: carbonation around moderate in level, light-medium bodied, crisp

t: clean pale malt structure - light on the palate and only slightly sweet, good balance of fruity, citrusy hops bring flavors of sweet and bitter citrus and tropical fruits - orange, grapefruit rind, passionfruit

d: really nice little ipa - great fruit character from the hops really sets it off, light and refreshing, drinkability high

Crisp and perfectly transparent, it's a beautiful light amber. Solid almond meat head that likes to hang out on top and prop up the walls.

Pine and almost like some cardamom? I may be hallucinating there, but it's an appealing if unorthodox spice note. All the usual suspects are there: green hops, some northwest pine trees, some floral (sweet though, not as hoppy floral) almost clover, intriguing prelude...

It's so good... once it hits your lips it so good
Actually starts off kind of sweet, following that clover/flower sweetness from the nose as the setup for the knockdown of earthy and spicy hops. Manages to balance these two components without coming off sticky or unbalanced or like there's something missing in the middle.

The aftertaste gets into earthy and citrus, and just kind of hangs around even though the lights are on and everyone's gone.

Real drinkable and a unique and delicious brew. I usually pick one up when I'm in Seattle

Food Pairing: Great with kimchi. Pepperjack cheese was fun with the spicyness playing well off the beer's bitterness. Sharp cheddar was even better as it complimented throughout.

A - Bubbly head over golden/ orange, and nearly bubble-less body. Head reduces to a thin layer which left some lacing.
S - Floral, white grapefruit, spicy. Quite aromatic.
T - Cream right up front, introducing a light, sweet floral flavor which is quickly followed by spicy hops biting down the sides and back of the tongue. There's a good balance here.
M - Light, but then again also undeniably creamy, almost buttery. Leaves a bit of a fullness which is satisfying, but you want to drink more.
O - Interesting brew for sure. Maybe not the "session beer" its label makes it out to be, but that isn't a bad thing. And while good on its own, I'd love to try this beer again with some food better suited for it. Something tells me that's really where it would shine the brightest.

Thanks, Bruce!

Pouring a hazy orange with a dense off white head with good retentioncme sticky lacing, this looks solid. The nose is solid too. Fruity, piney, perfumey with some citrus rind and grapefruit, along with a touch malt. The palate is a blend of fruity hops, moderate bitterness and some sweetness. Pine and grapefruit are noticeable. The sweetness is more a honey like flavor than caramel's and so, it does complement the hops. Medium light in body, and moderately carbonated, this beer feels quite good on the palate. Solid stuff.

The beer is transparent and golden hued with a half inch of sticky, white head. The aroma brings hops, pine, resin. Clean and refreshing. Smooth on the palate, despite a healthy amount of hop biterness. Hop forward, but certainly not a hop bomb. Nicely balanced, with some bready malts in a supporting role. Light bodied with minimal alcohol presence and appropriate carbonation. Overall, this was solid.
