Had from the tap at the brewery.

A - Medium copper color. Crystal clear. White head is low and fades to a ring around the glass.

S - Strong piney NW hops. No malt in the nose. Very clean, fresh hop aromas.

T - A big punch of piney, grapefruit-like hops. Some bready malt in background. Super clean and dry finish with a peppery spice bite.

M - Thin body. Low carbonation. Strong hops bitterness; somewhat acrid.

O - A nice IPA. But thin body, hop burn and spice in finish give a somewhat soapy impression.

A: The beer pours a golden body with a thin white head.

S: A little but of malt and a decent amount of hops

T: The hops aren't very strong in this beer and goes well with the malt

M: little bit of carbonation and has a nice tickle on the back of the throat.

O: very solid beer, I would drink again.
