Tried in Seattle in August 2008.
A: Cloudy, no head to speak of, but there is decent lacing. Tannish with a bit of orange color.
S: Hops and fruit are abundant. Alcohol and brown sugar are also present.
T: Nice and grapefruity, with a hint of apricot, and great northwest hop backing. Bready aftertaste with just a hint of brown sugar. Very toasty malt. Alcohol nearly undetectable.
M: Non-astringent, medium-light bodied, a little oily. Very good for the style.
D: I could even drink this when I wasn't in the mood for a beer. Great job!
Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.
