The beer appears a dark rich orange. The head appears white, fluffy, and pillowy soft. The head is sticky and persistent. It has a piney and citrusy aroma. The smell is similar to many other IPAs I have had in the past. The taste is also piney and citrusy, I would say juicy. This reminds me of Jai Alai. The mouthfeel is smooth, not much carbonation.
Overall, I am impressed with this IPA. This is a good addition to the burgeoning selection of nice IPAs in Washington. I will have it again.

4.4/5 rDev +7.1%

This beer is in my top 5 IPAs. It has great mosaic and simcoe flavor in the taste and aroma. Malt is there, but its like Joe Biden. Just there in presence but adds nothing to the show. The bitterness hits you like a Chuck Norris round house kick to the back of your tongue and lingers just long enough to get you to take another drink to keep him kicking. Stop in at the brewery in Moxee and have one fresh to taste what a true Yakima IPA should taste like. If its not enough hop flavor, walk over and pluck a few cascade cones off of a bine in the yard next to the parking lot and throw them in your glass.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass.
Pours a lovely amber with a one-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves lacing along the length of the beer.
The aroma is very nice, westy-style. grapefruit, citrus, candied fruit, and a little hint of spice and dankness.
The taste is very nice. Lots of grapefruit with a big initial bitter bite. As my palate adjusts, I also get some candied fruit, lemon zest, some sweet malt below and a hint of spicy hop as well.
Mouthfeel is pretty typical, medium a slightly sticky.
Overall, a very decent IPA. I'd happily drink another.
