I had this one at their outpost on Broadway & 15th.

It was served in a Guinness style glass. The beer is amber with gold highlights. There is a skim of beige head.

Aroma of caramel with some cascade-pine notes.

Taste tracks the smell, mid-range bitterness and caramel undertones. Classic old school apa. Taste is comforting.

The mouth could be turned-up a notch but it works.

I enjoyed this trip down memory lane.

One finger of fluffy head with dark amber colored body.
Smell is a nice pine and citrus.
Taste is pine all the way with a nice malt balance. Solid and tasty.
Soft texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A nice and drinkable IPA with a good profile.
