This is good! Honestly, it smells really floral but not even in a hop way. Sweet. Yellowish orange. A tiny bit malty but not in a bad way! Not super hoppy but you can still taste it.

Golden hue, with some not-unexpected cloudiness. After poured and head settled, I noted slight bitterness to the nose. Enjoyable taste, somewhat light but full with enough bitterness to remind you this is an IPA - includes some ever-so-slight sweet or ester flavor, which I enjoy. Ever since trying at the Scuttlebutt tap room, I find myself purchasing bottles frequently at local stores over all the other IPA choices available. Also great way to support KEXP radio station.

a dark and cloudy straw color, with a big foamy head. Aroma is sour, but my sample might be off, as what I am smelling no one else is. Flavor is sweet, with very little hop bite, almost a light beer. Mouthfeel is much heavier than the light taste, which is strange. I think I got a bad batch...

The best IPA Scuttlebutt has brewed. As a specialty with a portion of proceeds going to KEXP radio station, this IPA is currently one of my favorite go-to's. I am from WA so the beer is fresh, not dated, or having any off-flavors. Freshly brewed this is a good beer. Golden delicious, balanced hops, mild and wonderful.

Poured from undated glass bottle.

(L) The color is dark straw with suspended specks floating through out. (Is this unfiltered?!?) (A) Smell is slight. Mostly pine, citrus, and grassy hops. (T) Taste follows aroma but more bitter. (F) Medium bodied.

I'm thinking this beer was no good. Sad. It's a great radio station and I would've loved to support them more.

Golden and translucent.
Glacier and nugget hops create piney and citrus aromatics and flavor with some added spiciness.
Overall, this is an adequately hopped, refreshing IPA!

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a fine one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of bready and biscuit malt, grassy and lightly citrus hops, mild. Flavor starts with resinous grassy hops then good biscuit malt support before finishing with grapefruit rind, citrus and grassy hop bitterness. Nice lingering hop flavors. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A nice blend of forward hops and a pleasant malt base. Hops do not have any distinct herbal flavors, but a good Northwest profile. Malt and hops rich for a medium ABV IPA. I liked this and will get it periodically to support our local alternative music station. A worthy ale for the station.
