22 Oz bottle. Bottled 7/20/16

Pours an almost clear orange body with a slightly off white head. Not a lot of retention. Thin specks of lacing

Smell was prominent . Mostly a grapefruit citrus, with an underlying malt sweetness,

Taste is bold and bitter up front. A very nice bitterness that ends with a slightly malty finish... Really great balance.

Feel was creamy and full, yet still well carbonated.

Very well balanced northwest style IPA
Bravo !

Served at room temp.

L : 80% opaque, hazy yellow body with a creamy cap leaving strings of lace.

S : Grapefruit and orange rinds, cracker malt

T : pine and cracker malt out front, with a buttery oily tropical bite with orange peel and grapefruit.

F : creamy, mouth-filling, delicious. Moderate carbonation keeps things exciting.

Overall : a solid pacific style IPA with not a lot of bells and whistles, but an exceptional mouthfeel and delivers an enjoyable experience.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a deep orange tinged amber hue into the glass, nice clarity and a nice creamy beige head sits on top. Leaving behind some consistent enough lacing.

S — Smell is bitter and malty all at once, a big note of pine and chewy caramel malts.

T — Malt forward and slightly heavy, there is enough bitterness in there to balance things out, but not a whole lot of flavors developed.

M — Medium bodied with a lingering finish.

O — Alright overall, excessively bitter and a bit too malt focused for my tastes.
