Pours a clear tea-like color with a nice dense cream-colored head. The aroma consists of pungent citrus hops and light sweet malts in the background. The taste is watery with more citrus hop bite with very faint malts lurking in the distant background. It is a little on the astringent side as it is just lacking in malt flavor and aroma. This is a very light bodied beer that finishes slightly dry.
Notes: This could be a good beer on a hot day as it is not at all sticky. Clean and crisp with hops, alcohol, and very little malt character. Not bad, but lacking. Cheers!

I had this beer on-tap in a tall glass at the Alaskan Lounge at Sea-Tac Airport. My 2000th review!
Appearance: deep golden orange hue with a very light haze and a finger of creamy ivory foam leaving a nice lace on the glass. I like it.
Smell: caramelly and bready malt with an earthy, dank hop character. Pretty good, if earthy is your thing.
Taste: bready, ever so slightly biscuity malt with a dank, earthy hop character. Bitterness is pretty strong but it comes on slow. Not bad.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a nice rocky creaminess. Pretty decent for an IPA.
Overall: a good-drinkin' dank and earthy IPA. Not always my bag, but it hits the spot well enough.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance holds a hazy orange amber color supporting a fair head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice malt backbone with citrus and floral hop aroma. Taste is balanced between the malt and hops leaving a lingering hop in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A nice take on a PNW IPA.
