Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thick and rather persistent fluffy eggshell head that pillows nicely. Aroma is more fruity than hoppy - largely apple and pear, but with an underpinning of Mandarin orange. Hoppy flavor has a nice fruity undertone, and here the citrus dominates the pomme. Texture is firm, smooth and fairly fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy finish.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light to medium copper amber with a half finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit; pineapple and mango, sweet bready malt and slight citrus hops. Flavor follows, with great tropical fruit juice, bready malt, light citrus and light citrus hops with hints of pine. Excellent medium, creamy body. Leans towards the golden ale side of the labelled golden IPA, with rather subdued hops. I'd like some more hop kick from this, but have to say it is still a nice moderately hoppy golden ale. I was very taken with the original Space Needle Anniversary IPA which this is riffing from, but this one does not have the bright hop flavors I remember from that one. Ah, the memories.

A: Pours a hazy golden burnt orange in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and some golden yellow + apricot highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy light beige head that reduces to a few small patches of thick film (made up of moderate sized bubbles), a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready/biscuit malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness along with tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit pith, and pine hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready and biscuit malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit pith, and pine hops. The hops taste a little past their prime but as there is no bottle dating, it is tough to tell.

M: Just heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: I was a little disappointed in this one - I really like the idea of a hoppy golden ale but the hop flavors were a little abrasive and past their prime (in my opinion) giving it hints of herbalness. It is worth a try but I guess I should have grabbed the anniversary edition that I also saw for sale.
