This medal winning India Pale Ale is brewed in the true Northwest fashion. It has an intense hop flavor and aroma, with a dry bitter finish. It defintely has enough hops to “send you over the edge.”

The site says "retired" but I just had this on tap in Boise, so I shall need to note that.

Anyway, this is a strongly characterful, hoppy, but rather intense and unbalanced IPA.

Hazy orange amber, it has a smallish foamy off-white head soon shrinking to a foamy ring, with a little lace.

Aroma is candied citrus, marmalade and grapefruit, sour green grapes.

Taste is resiny and bitter-sweet candied citrus with light caramelly raisiny sweetness at first balanced but quickly overpower by the astringent, medicinal bitterness of bitter leaves and citrus, which dominates the aftertaste and lingers. This brings down drinkability a lot. It is, though, at least somewhat different from the norm and the medicinal quality has promise if it is reigned in and balanced, etc.

This came with a thick, rocky, tawny head with moderate retention. The color was a slightly hazy deep-amber. The nose was wonderfully hoppy. The mouthfeel was medium with a great citrus-hop presence on the tongue. The finish was lingeringly hoppy. I noted great lacing throughout.
