12 oz. brown long neck bottle with a freshness date on the back label.

Appearance: Lightly hazed coppery orange hue, a thick pancake like head rests on top and does not want to break apart.

Smell: Soft pungent citric hop aroma, very floral with hints of tangerine juice. Soft bready grain in the nose as well.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with a bitter start. Malt sweetness shows it is big enough to handle the hops and the hops have to muscle-up to make sure they are on top. The pungency of the hops is very pleasing with a citric tone all the way through. Subtle fruitiness with a yeast backing. Ends with a supple bready sweetness and a slam of pungent oily hop.

Notes: This is what I think the ideal standard American brewed IPA should taste like as it has all of the trademark qualities of one. An easy pairing for me was to put it up against a sharp aged cheddar.

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

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
