Served On-Tap

A — Pours a deep and slightly hazy orange color into the glass. There is a creamy nearly khaki colored head on-top of the beer that leaves behind some inconsistent lacing.

S — Smells of sweet caramel malts and a bit of sweetness. As well as a piney and somewhat juicy hop profile, little bit of citrus as well.

T — Tastes of some lightly bitter and piney hops as well as some sweet malt undertones.

M — Medium bodied, seems a bit undercarbed and a touch flat.

O — OK overall, would have loved some more complexities.

On tap into an American pint glass @ the Wedgwood Alehouse, Seattle. Pours a clear copper color, some lacing as I drain the pint.

Aroma is hoppy and floral; clean, balanced.

Taste is neutral pale malt balanced by floral and citrusy hops. Flavorful and balanced, but not especially bitter.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, smooth, drinkable.

Overall a pretty typical NW style IPA. Perfect with a bowl of French onion soup, Buffalo wings, and a cheeseburger.

I've had this beer quite a lot over the years, can't believe I've never reviewed it. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, very lightly hazy yellow amber color, with about 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma had lots of piney hops upfront, with some grainy malt underneath and a bit of citrus at the back. The flavor profile was fairly similar, lots of hops, a bit of malt for counterpoint and a nice, dry citrus finish.

The body was nicely full without being sticky or heavy. Drinkability was very good, this is an IPA you can have several of these without killing your tastebuds, or getting them bored. Overall, a very nice, although average for us, example of the style. This beer (and this brewery in general) highlights the strength of the PNW beer scene. No hype, just quality. A must try if you see it.
