Well...After reading some of the other reviews I wondered but not for long....this Beer taste Good, well above some of the average or less I have tried lately. Maybe I was just ready to taste something Good for a change. I would definitely buy this again and enjoy it probably more. Not sure why it did not smell did not come through?

Appearance pours a cloudy orange amber supporting a steady head leaving fair curtain of lace. Smell has a sweet citrus piney aroma with caramel malt. Taste has an upfront hit of hops with grapefruit citrus backed by the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

Some hockey fans out in the Seattle area I see.Poured into a standard pint glass a clear rich copper/bronze with a nicely defined one finger white head that left one good ring of lace as it settled pretty slowly.Alot of caramel and nutty malts in the nose wich is nice but in an IPA...not sure.There is a subtle piney note but it seems the malt profile is a little big.Somewhat sweet on the palate with caramel malts being really big,more nuttiness on top of that make the malt profile pretty damn good,the problem is the pine resin hop flavors are not quite as big as the malts.I like this beer but with such a big malt profile it's close to being a DIPA and the hops don't provide enough kick to overtake the malts.I do like this beer, it's just a little hop flavor deprived.The hop burps are better than the hop profile flavors.

On tap at the Swamp. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a copper/gold color, clear with a creamy white head.

The smell is faint with a mild citrus fruit aroma.

The state is predictable American IPA, a tasty pine flavor, with a mild bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is light and clean.

Overall a very drinkable IPA. Nothing about it is overpowering and and it has a remarkably clean and crisp character. I would have it again.
