look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured at the release party at The Eastside Tavern in Olympia, WA.

A- Pours dark gold with a nice one finger head. Pretty average looking IPA with not much head retention or lacing.

S- Smell is nice citrus hops up front. Not overpowering the malt. Pretty balanced smell here.

T- Taste is much more hop forward than the smell. Not over the top, but great citrus hop with a nice malt backing.

M- Medium mouthfeel and very easy to drink.

O- Great collaboration from these great breweries. I have had the bottle version as well and it is very similar, but slightly more nose.

Draft at The Pine Box in Seattle, WA.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with tangerine hues and a two finger creamy white head that slow fades into a thick lasting ring.  Chunks of lace left behind.

Earthy hop aroma that's bursting with sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes.  Dank grassy pine needle followed by mango, orange peel, pineapple and grapefruit.  Subtle biscuity malt underneath.  

Chewy full body with a blast of dry bitterness up front that lingers over the sweeter notes into a dry finish.  Floral and spicy hops with grass and pine excellently countered by tropical/citrus fruit notes.  Hints of mango, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit and orange zest.  Biscuit malt, bready yeast and subtle boozy sweetness in the finish.  Really flavorful, excellently balanced and dangerously quaffable. I loved this beer!

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a dark yelloowish golden color with a nice white cap, some bubbles and lacing clinging to the glass after a few minutes

S: Some citrus; mainly in the way ofr orange peel and light lemon zest

T: Immediate light lemon zest with orange peel with a little bit of lemon mixed in. Pretty nice and tasty throughout. The hop biiterness is rather tame, pretty balanced. FInishes rather clean with citrus and some bitterness

M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied, well carbonated more of the same on the hop bill; loads of citrus and fruits

O: No overkill on anything, just a nice, tasty and easy drinking IPA. Good job!
