3.75/5 rDev -10.1%
Surprised to find this among the masses of Budweiser at the ZZ Top concert
A: Poured a cloudy deep orange color with good carbonation capped with a nice white hesd
S: Hop oils, grains, citrus, floral notes mostly. It seemed sordove muddy on the hops at times with bitterness all over the place. Plenty of malt and it was tasty.
M: Balanced, well carbonated, nice bitterness on the end

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a medium gold color with about 1/2 inch of just off-white head that had good retention and some lacing.
The aroma was nicely floral hops, otherwise subdued and benign. The flavor was also floral hops, had good balance and finished with a slightly surprising citrus tang.
The body was the typical mid-range of the style. Drinkability was pretty good, this is an IPA you can have several of without killing your tatstebuds. Overall, an OK example of the style, worth trying when you see it.

on-tap, Old Town Alehouse - Ballard
appearance: served in a tall non-traditional glass, hazy orange body - nice beige froth

taste: a nice bitter ipa - pleasantly suprised by this one. hop oil, pine resin, bitter grapefruit rind, very much a west coast IPA with a nice bite from the bitterness and abv levels
mouthfeel: moderate bitterness, medium body and light carbonation

I had Lucille on tap at Jules Maes Saloon in Seattle.
Appearance: cloudy orange hue with thin tan head due to pour. I like the look of it.
Smell: aroma is citrusy hops, but seemed a bit light to me. The beer was not served ice-cold, so I don't think temperature was at fault here. Good composition, but I'd like to see a little more intensity.
Taste: Lucille is all about citrusy hops, with a little bit of funkiness thrown in to break the monotony. More than that, though, the flavors in this beer just really work well together; they are properly balanced and the brewers just seem to have put a lot of care into this beer. The west coast IPA is a pretty well-worn style at this point, but Georgetown have executed it superbly.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation for the style. It's a little creamy, but still has that nice IPA bite.
Drinkability: just a super tasty and refreshingly drinkable IPA. I look forward to drinking tons of this in the future.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a one finger slightly off-white head with decent retention and light lacing. Nice aroma of piney and citrus hops and light bready malt. Flavor is balanced bready and caramel malt and more subdued piney and citurs hops than the aroma. Light citrus juice and rind. Balanced malt and hop finish with light lingering piney and citrus hops. Medium bodied. At first I was slightly dissapointed that the flavor was not as fresh hop intense as the aroma, but this IPA really grew on me as I finished the glass and since I was drinking it with a meal, a total assault on my taste buds would have been inappropriate anyway. A very nice balanced IPA that I would drink any time I ran across it, especially while dining. Nicely done.

On draught at the Swiss. THIS is a NW IPA. Huge hop flavor, super dank, resinous, wow. Major aftertaste of hop oils. While on the dull orange side, there's not much more then a hint of biscuit to the malt. This is strait hop juice. Love it. Wow. Georgetown doesn't seem to do a lot of beers, but they do them well. Love there red DIPA, which I just realized I haven't had in way to long! B.B. would be proud of this one for sure, it really sings.

On tap at the Skyview Grille.
A clear orange amber with a dense off white head with decent retention and modest lacing, this looks pretty good. The nose is a hoppy treat. Rather bitter and fragrant citrus and pine hop aromatics are present, dank and herbaceous. Sweetness is reserved with a faint toasted caramel note present. The palate opens with a pleasing, pungent bitterness, with a blend of grapefruit, pine and marijuana. Hop flavor is modest but it really works here ; the exceptionally clean bitterness lends flavor by itself. Malt character is faint, with only a look little burnt sugar present. Clean on the finish with a pungent and resiny bitterness, there is a little alcohol present, and that does detract from the wonderful palate. Excellent.
