Appearance is a hazy orange amber supporting a healthy steady head leaving collared lace. Smell is sweet with citrus with a piney aroma. Taste is hop forward of the malt having that piney grapefruit with the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Makes for a nice IPA offering.

As a west coast hop hound, this brew is remarkable. Thick, viscous body with three feel of a DIPA, or IIPA. Found it on sale and was wowed.

Way more quality than the current 89 that BA shows.

Dark copper color. Small head. Nice hoppy aroma. Very malty feel and taste. Has a pure, clean feel. It tastes like a really good homebrew. Great IPA. I might not go out of my way to pick it up but i would gladly drink it again.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of tea, citrus fruit, candied citrus zest, and brown sugar aromas. Taste is much the same with tea, candied citrus zest, and brown sugar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid tea and candied citrus zest qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

22oz bottle. It wasn't that long ago when, traveling through Spokane, I found bupkis for local brew - nice to see that has changed (or maybe I just missed it). Oh, and cool that the malt for this brew comes from across the border in Canada.

This beer pours a clear, medium orange brick amber hue, with one chubby finger of loosely foamy, and generally bubbly pale tan head, which leaves a bit of roiling sea wave lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of somewhat musty orange, white grapefruit, and lemon/lime rind, mildly dank pine resin, fallen leaves, a touch of wet tobacco, a subdued bready caramel malt sweetness, some minor flinty notes, and further floral, earthy, and lightly perfumed hops. The taste is bitter citrus pith - blood orange, indistinct grapefruit, and pineapple core - grainy caramel malt, a touch of hard toffee, a sort of isolated charred leafiness, a burgeoning pine forest floor green character, and some tame boozy florals.

The carbonation is kind of amateurish in its fizzy and frothy flip-flopping (ok, granted, I just wanted to say that out loud, so it stuck), the body an agreeable middleweight, and more or less smooth, but with a looming threat of baying booze at the outer gates. It finishes quite dry, the maltiness leaning and acquiescing as such, while the hops and hard water edginess take it all in stride.

Another PAC-NW IPA offering that pushes the boundaries of the DIPA designation, failing only in the required (hah!) malt quotient. Tasty, and enjoyable in its tickling of my hop sensory mechanisms - too bad that I didn't come across this place, the last time that I could have.

A: 4.0 - Lovely dark copper color with a slow-forming, dense head.
S: 3.75 - Moderately citrusy aroma.
T: 4.0 - Lots of bitterness up front, with appropriate hop flavor (perhaps more piney than citrus), but also has a solid malt profile adding some sweetness in the middle, a touch of caramel.
M: 4.0 - Good body but not heavy.
O: 4.0 - Above average IPA.
