on tap at their bike bar spot, a delicious and very classic northwestern ipa, with a big tall white head over a fairly clear slightly orange but rather pale body with excellent carbonation. it smells like weed, there is a serious fresh sticky dankness to this that also has elements of pine sap and grapefruit peel. just enough bitterness in the flavor, but it is also counterbalanced really well by just a dash of sweeter, richer grain, not toasty or caramelized or anything, not overdone, but just enough for body and balance. the hops take the day though, juicy and bold, with an orange peel note, lots of sticky pine, and an odd cleanness not common in beers with this kind of hop complexion. its somehow all resolved by the end, not much more than a casual bitterness on the palate after the swallow, pretty impressive flavor and mouthfeel explosion and clean up here, it all happens pretty quick too. good carbonation really helps with that. perfect abv for the style too, low enough to drink a bunch of. really good stuff with their pizzas there, we had a lot of fun here and this was one of the better beers we had from these guys.

Wow. Is this a 6.6% really.... man be careful cause this seems like a 0.0% abv.

Never had a beer that was so clean and smooth that it simply doesn't have any bite to it like this ipa.. no bitterness whatsoever.
That being said the flavors are dim also because of the low bitterness.. (75 ibu) btw
You simply get the happiness to this beer and it's great. So easy drinking.

Nice orange glow to this one, just what you want in an ipa appearance, thin off white head 1/2". Solid amount of dry hopping and a mix of proprietary and traditional American c hops.

Doesn't skimp on the bitterness or hop taste and mouthfeel here. Notice this has been amazing at the brewpub and lesser in the bottles, really fades quick maybe, I dunno, they don't bottle date. Lots of citrus and pine trees in this one, a little bit of crystal malt.

Slightly hazy golden color with creamy, white head. Intense dank, vegetal hops on the aroma. Chives, dill but also some ripe tropical fruits. There is also a slight nail polish remover hint but it's not really offensive. Taste starts also really hoppy, the same dank notes from the aroma. The bitterness makes its appearance only in the finish, not harsh, just right for a legit IPA. Body is really smooth, the carbonation just right. Really good IPA overall. Modern hops, smooth body and a good amount of bitterness.

Great IPA! Citrus nose, resins on the finish, and a hoppy refreshing feel. This is a great classic IPA! Thanks HUB!
