Shows you how IBU numbers are estimates and don’t necessarily reflect flavor. This 90 IBU beer should be a borderline hop bomb but comes across light in the bittering hops. I good NW IPA but doesn’t live up to the IBU’s or reputation.

12 oz. Can
BB: OCT 09 2018

My first from this brewery.
They need to make better cans.

Poured into a tulip a nice clean/clear dark golden orange color, with some nice carbonation, with a nice thick/creamy two-finger off-white head, which also leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Had on tap at a Rockies game with my Dad at Coors Field. Pours a orange amber with no head and a light nose. Flavor is lasting and mostly unbalanced. This still isn't very withering or powerful for the IBU footprint. Easy drinking but also kind of boring. Fine at a ballgame, but not something worth hunting down.

12oz can dated best before July 11.

Pours hazy gold with a large head of white. Nice retention and lacing. Piney cardboard and dusty malt in the nose. Tacky and chaulky mouthfeel. Bitter pine bark with wet paper and stale malt on the palate. Finishes with lingering bitterness and malty cardboard.

If this beer is best before July it must have never been good at all.

Well balanced brew, nothing really jumped out for me, the can art was the strongest aspect for me, maybe it tastes way better on tap, also not bad either
