3.7/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle from By the Bottle, Vancouver, WA., poured into shaker pint glass 6.23.2010.

Clear deep gold body, a finger and a half of lingering white creamy head, surprisingly minimal lacing, multiple streams of carbonation rising from bottom of glass. Nose is nicely balanced, sweetish malts, along with grassy and resiny hops. Taste is malt forward but with a significant grassy hop middle leading to a sweetish bitter finish. Light-medium mouthfeel, not sticky, with good effervescence. Pretty drinkable though I was surprised how noticeable the alcohol was. Not as hop aggressive as PNW and SD style IPAs, but a nice interpretation, attempt to create 'officer quality' EIPA. Worth a try, though I think the hops have faded a bit in this three month old bottle.
