Very orange amber color with a modest amount of foam poured in the big chalice. Pleasantly sparkly on the tougue but maybe less head than average. Seriously sharp, actually. Light orange blossom aroma with some pine.

Resiny flavor with a decent amount of malt that takes some of the edge off the acidity. Seriously bitter aftertaste. Drinkable enough but it's more of bitter hops without the massive aromatics that I prefer. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at The Market in Anacortes.

Impressive appearance, somewhere in between dark orange and amber. Head in the 1/2" range, white. Aroma didn't pop with dry hopping unfortunately.

Taste was interesting, something fruity came through, and I suspect it may not have been from the hop choice, seemed like it was a steam kind of yeast. A relatively easy drinking with nothing out of the ordinary other than fruit esters meeting up with some C hops.

This beer has no hop aroma, smells of crystal malt and maybe some biscuit. Can't taste any amarillo but just a little chinook and a whole wheel barrow of malt. Good clarity and mouthfeel but to call this a northwest IPA is like calling a Toyota Camry an American car. Just because its built in the northwest... Doesn't mean...
This beer would go well with some fish and chips while watching cricket when visiting burton.

color looked good, smell was right but the taste fell flat for me. Very Flat finish. Certain you have to be a local to appreciate this taste. Food will not help this beer get past the flat side. The hop is there then it goes Flat? Why? The Bitter is there but the Flat follows Why? I do not know.

It seemed a bit all over the place when I first tasted it but after a few sips it all came together and then a top shelf PNW IPA arrived. The nose grew in its hoppiness and the beer rounded out to showcase both the hops and the malt bill. I could drink a few of these and it shows that Lazy Boy is making some great beers

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a ruddy copper amber with a thin off white head with decent retention and light slippery lacing. Aroma is bready, slightly biscuit malt with light grassy hops. Flavor follows with biscuit malt and moderate grassy, neutral hops. Long lingering hop bitterness in the the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied. This is definitely an English style IPA, with more emphasis on malt and bittering hops than aromatic hops. Flavor progression a bit unbalanced, could have used the finish bitterness in the main flavor. A satisfactory traditionally styled IPA.
