I was very impressed with this one, perhaps even a bit more so than I was with Bastard Cat.

The appearance was nice, although not spectacular, and the nose was mostly citric hop forward, but the flavor was much more complex, soft, and subtle than I was expecting, with underpinnings of new mown hay, cookie dough, kumquats, and a very subtle undefinable spiciness, along with the expected grapefruit, mandarin orange, and tangerine. There was no starkness to this beer, it was very gentle and beguiling, particularly for an IPA, although there were plenty of hops to revel in. I could see drinking quite a few of these, happily, on a warm summer day.

Another in the series of beers brewed for Bellinghams new Hackey-ball team, the United. Available only at the brewery, The Copper Hog (home pub for the United) and in the beer garden at the Uniteds games.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a medium gold color with about 1/4 inch of white head that had better than moderate retention and very good lacing. The aroma featured mostly pine and citrus hops, with some floral undertones, and just a bit of grains.

The flavors have the citrus tones dominating, with the pine pushed to the rear and the floral notes not really having a role. There is just a trace of the malts. The body is the fairly typical medium so common in the style. Drinkability is good, dependent on your attitudes towards hop-forward beers. Overall, a nice brew, one that is sure to satisfy the hop-heads at Uniteds games. Worth trying if you see it.
