on-tap at the brewery
Served in a shaker - bright orange body shines in the Bellingham sunlight. Aromatic hop profile - lots of bright citrus, tangerine, lemon zest, hop oil. Nice oily body with a clean finish. This one goes down easy and is always worth a shot.

A: more yellow than orange. Crystal clear. Small head.
T: mango and citrus. Mellow hop flavor and bitterness. Basic malt. A little on the sweet side.
M: medium carbonation. Medium, smooth body.
O: great IPA. Not over the top on hops. Balanced well. Just right. Needs a little more aroma.

Somewhat disappointing actually. I think its just not my preference, but it seems too bitter without enough flavor to back it up. I enjoy bitter IPAs, but this seems to be bitter for the sake of it.
Their other beers more than make up for it, so not a big deal, I still love Kulshan

12oz can into a tulip. Pours a clean pale copper color w/ a sudsy bright white head, nice patchy lace.
Aroma is clean bright floral, piney, citrusy hops. Has a sweetness to it.
Taste follows nose. Pale neutral malt and a nice blend of bright, flavorful hops. Juicy orange and grapefruit. Nice lightly bitter finish countered by a subtle sweetness.
Mouthfeel is balanced, clean, with a semi-dry finish.
Overall a straight-up tasty IPA. Highly drinkable.
Another big thanks to beertunes for sending this my way.

Beautifully balanced IPA with components of citrus and tropical fruit, and just the right mouthfeel and body to strike a ba perfect balance between richness and ideal drinkability.
This brew is totally clean, and without any flaws that I could detect, and would make an ideal session ale...just what Bellingham needed!

The first release from Bellingham's newest brewery. Served in straight pint glass. This unfiltered brew had a hazy yellow color, with a bit of an orange tint, with about an inch of white head that had OK retention and good lacing.
The aroma featured very nice, bright floral and citrus (mostly lemon) hop scents and didn't really have a malty or grain presence. The taste was very similar, bright, crisp hops dominating and a very subtle malt profile.
The body was OK, fairly typical for the style and a bit thinner than I personally like, but I think the majority of hop heads will find it to right on the mark. Drinkability was good, I ended up having 5. Overall, a solid opening salvo from this brand new brewery, I look forward to seeing how this beer develops as they gain experience with their system. Certainly worth a shot when you see it.
