Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a pale golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipated to a thin film and ring around the glass. Aroma of grassy and citrus hops with some floral elements, light sweet malt, grapefruit. Flavor follows, with citrus hops, grapefruit, orange and lemon citrus, somewhat bland malt that still supported the hops well. A nice floral hop character even stronger in the taste than the aroma. Light to medium bodied, the carbonation was a bit low, but I think it was the fault of my mini growler. A nice citrus IPA that was pretty well balanced, but could use a bit more character to the malt support. Kind of pale looking in the glass. Nice Citra hop finish with a lingering, aromatic hop bitterness. I'll try the next offering I see from this brewery.
Serving type: growler

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear pale golden straw color with under 1/4 inch of white head that had OK retention and lacing.
The aroma was was a nice blend of floral and citrus hops (not surprising given the use of Citra in this beer), with light grain undertones. The flavor was very similar, a bit of floral, big blasts of citrus and a good grainy malt base for contrast.
The body was light-medium, very crisp and had a dry finish. Drinkability was excellent, I knocked off 4 of these in less than an hour, without even trying (or noticing). Overall, a pretty nice beer that's a welcome addition to the Fourth Corner beer scene. I'm not sure how long this will be around, or if it will ever be brewed again, the owner said it would depend on their being able to secure more Citra hops. If this beer leaves the brewery, and you see it, it's a must try.
Serving type: on-tap
