Easy drinking NW IPA. Pours nice with a light head. Georgetown's growler exchange leaves the beer fresh in a growler for several days. After 5 days, thee beer had the same carbonation as the day I tasted it in the brewery.

Piney sweet aroma, nice and bitter for a relaxing summer day. Copper color with a light head that is perfect for an IPA. one of my favorite NW IPAs.

G-town Growler Grrrr

Hazy dark burnt orange brew capped by a creamy head. Little carbonation bubbles rise steadily and the aromas of spring burst through the foam. Powdered sugar-sweetened grapefruit and piney hops are the strongest scents. The taste starts bitter and stays that way to the finish. A bit soapy in the middle but the aftertaste is puckering pink citrus. Golden malts provide some body and balance. There's a a little bit of grainy toast, sticky caramel, pale malt, and just a touch of honey-like sweetness. Carbonation is crisp but the bitterness is more prickly than the fizz.

Classic Northwest IPA. I don't know what hops they used but I have a strong feeling that they start with 'C' ... just checked the Georgetown website - sure enough Centennial, Columbus and Cascade hops are included as well as Amarillo and Simcoe, all stapes of the west coast pale ale. The website claims that Lucille is 6.8% ABV but certainly that varies as the recipe is tweaked over time.

If you like bitter hops that don't apologize or relent, you will love this. If you are a hop-shy advocate of fermented malt beverages, or just prefer balanced sweetness, you may not like this too much. This is plain grapefruit spooned out of the peel with just a tiny bit of sweetener, which I happen to love. BB would too.

I've been enjoying this one somewhat frequently lately, so I figured it's time to give it a review!

A - Pours a cloudy orange-amber hue, with a nice 2-finger off-white head, which slowly recedes. Leaves feathery lacing rings around the glass. It looks like a more aggressive version of Manny's (their pale ale).

S - Smell is of piney, floral hops with plenty of citrus fruits (orange, lemon, grapefruit, apricot), as well as some semi-bready caramel malts. It's pretty much a classic PNW IPA scent.

T - Taste is of plenty of floral/citrus goodness. Has a moderately aggressive, but far from over the top hop bite, with prominent orange and lemon notes, balanced with silky smooth caramel malts. There are plenty of west coast style IPA's brewed around Seattle, but this is clearly one of the better ones.

M - Medium-bodied, and satisfying, without being too filling. Mild carbonation, and silky smooth finish.

O - Overall, a really solid IPA that's become one of my local go-to's. Georgetown has a real winner here!
