Notes/Commercial Description:
"Our take on the classic India Pale ale style - the favorite craft beer of the Northwest. This amber colored brew is loaded with four different types of hops during the brew day and then gets dry hopped. Our IPA has a huge citrus and pine character with a strong, but refined bitterness."

Pours a nice copper/orange colour.
Heavy citrus with a slight malt backup
Very grapefruity , maybe an orange undertone, slight lime
Same as the smell....delicious
Just a good very drinkable brew with a great aftertaste
I really like this brew, II'll be buying more for sure....it reminds me of Hop Henge or Union Jack....not to heavy , not to lite, just right.

Firkin at Bailey's. I'm calling it cask, even though it poured from a bung, same vessel and secondary fermentation for carbination. Appearency is hazy orange with a small off-white head leaving biggish bubbled lace.

Smell is pungent and dank hops, very resinous.

Taste is loaded with hop flavor, heavy citrus, some resin. Fairly bitter. A touch yeasty. A little biscuit malt. Big and brash up front, but reasonably smooth on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, chewy and oily.

Drinkability is high a delicous and deliriously fresh IPA with lots of bark but not too muchbite. Really digging this uber fresh firkin, just tapped yesterday.

A: Poured a clear orangish color with good carbonation presenting a nice white cap, a good amount of bubbles and some good lacing. Head retention is nice as it stuck around after several sips.

S: Wow. Nice big citrus, tropical fruit presence. Very nice indeed!

T: An initial blast of tropical fruits (mango and pineapple) only to be followed up by a nice dry bite and a healthy dose of pine.

M: Medium body, well carbonated. Lots of flavor and fruits on the palate, dry, not very oily and a moderate bitterness

O: Very impressed! A solid A IPA in a dog eat dog IPA world.

On point IPA from a brewery I have not had a chance to sample. Nice PNW IPA that works with the hops as a complete unit with the malt. Not over the top but rather really well balanced much like Moon Under Water's IPA. The nose is excellent and the colour is reddish in tinge. Would buy this one again which is saying a lot in this bumper crop of IPAs available,
