This is a good solid IPA by Seattle Standards. I am so glad I get to live here for awhile. Bought it at The Best Damn Happy Hour at Seattle Center. This is the best beer I have found here, hope they keep it on the menu! Funny how your standards change after being in the hood for several months!

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a one finger, f fine, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, light grassy hops, hints of apple juice and tropical fruit. Flavor is rich caramel malt with notes of light stone fruit and citrus, hops are subdued but of the fruit and mild citrus variety rather than intense herbal bitterness. Hops are not that noticeable in the taste, but leave a long grassy bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant creamy body with great mouth feel. An aberration in NW IPAs, with nowhere near the hop aggessiveness I'd expect, but very enjoyable as a malty, creamy old fashioned IPA. I'd put the profile closer to a classic red ale for the malty body and less intense hops, but this is one ale that wins me over despite not toeing the contemporary style line. Not what I'd go for if I was in the mood for a hop bomb, but I will absolutely buy this again. I've admired this brewery's Scotch style ales in the past and will add this one to my list to watch for.

22oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy amber color w/ a 1-finger head that settles pretty quickly.

Aroma is floral and grassy NW hops, sweet caramel and pale biscuity malt.

Taste follows nose. Big sweet malt presence countered by floral and herbal hops. Some nice spiciness in there too. Pretty standard NW-style IPA here.

Mouthfeel is balanced and medium bodied.

Overall a pretty good IPA, maybe a little more malt-forward than I like them.

Pretty pour. Rich amber, good white head, decent retention.

Not a particularly memorable aroma. Some bread malt, some citrus hops, some mint almost?

Hmm... I have a hard time pinning the flavour down. There's elements of citrus rind spice, some earthiness, some mint even.
Lightly carbonated, it's smoothe and drinkable.
An interesting IPA. In this current era of super hoppy NW IPAs, it doesn't stand out in that regard, but it is tasty. I think people would see it more favourably if it said APA than IPA, which just speaks to peoples preconceptions. It's a solid, enjoyable beverage, just not on par with some of the world class IPAs that can come out of the area
