Pours a dark honey with a quilt of soapy whites. Smells of grapefruit, english pale malts and some crystal, a bit of oxidation and tea character. Flavor is bitter with a good bit of resin and grapefruit, malts are dry with a bit of vinous character. Body is medium on full with moderated carb and a slick finish. Meh, beer is okay. Their normal IPA is much better.

A: Poured a hazed deep rusty gold color with good carbonation leaving a moderate white cap, good amount of bubbles and light lacing

S: Nose is fresh citrus and a little green and herbal too but pretty faint to be double dry hopped, actually underwhelming

T: Initial floral and citrus one-two punch. Midway I get some caramel, more citrus and a light dash of pine but the bitterness picks up a bit leaving a convoluted but rather dry finish.

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated. Plenty of citrus and floral notes on the palate.

O: Good overall. I di wish it was a bit more aromatic.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden amber, with a healthy two finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and fresh hops with a interesting herbal/fruit aroma; glad to get a good whiff of fresh Cascade hops. Flavor is biscuit malt and fresh grassy, slightly floral and grapefruit hops. Finishes lightly citrus and faintly piney. Good balance of malt and hops. Somewhat understated compared to other NW IPAs, but great to have the chance to taste Cascade hops nicely supported by a good malt backbone, a pleasant IPA. Medium bodied. I look forward to tasting other varieties in this series. Will buy again.

Bottle from the Whole Foods in Tanasbourne. Listed at 60 IBUs, made with all-organic ingredients but lacking in mention of a bottled-on date.

Pouring a mostly clear amber with a dense, creamy, beige head with excellent retention and some lacing. The nose is pretty nice! I'm usually not a fan of Cascades, but this beer brings out the best characteristics, especially on the nose. Mildly fruity with grapefruit, a nice blend of flesh and pith, with minimal astringency. Some caramel is present, but since this beer is super fresh (10-12 days, per their website), the dry hops dominate. A little bit of chalk is also noticeable.

The palate opens with a blend of lighter crystal malt and moderate bitterness. The bitterness is clean, with some refreshing grapefruit flesh, mildly juicy and a touch of pith. Definitely sweeter than ideal, especially since the candied notes from the crystal malt (IMO) work better with a brighter citrus note (oranges, lemons) than with the more pungent (lime, grapefruit). Drying on the finish with some nice bitterness, this beer is medium-light in body with a nice, creamy carbonation. The hoppy notes on the finish are mildly grassy and minimally chalky. Quite nice.
