Pint purchased at the Baby Bar in Spokane for $2.00 (cheap micro night).

Received a pint that was a bright copper color with a finger's worth of bone-white foam.

Relatively sharp pine and citrus hop notes in the nose. Modest malty notes in the background.

Mixture of citrusy and piney hop flavors, with the citrus aspects winning out. More malty flavo than I would hav expected, but this is still the hops' show. Dry note at the swallow.

Medium bodied, with a resiny mouthfeel.

A typical, PNW take on the IPA style. I could have several of these in a row. If I see this again on tap, I wouldn't mind at all.

Had this one at the Old Town Tavern in Ballard on cask . Never heard of these guys but once again it is great to have another new brewery producing good local beer. The pint was a golden orange colour with small head due to the cask. The nose was pure PNW hop heaven and the beer was spot on with the cask bringing out the hop flavours to the front and showing the quality of the beer. I hope to find more from these guys in the future as I see them becoming another Diamond Knot type local tap favourite

A: nice orange color, decent head with good retention and lacing.

S: Excellent hop aroma, not overpowering but substantial. Nice balance of pine and citrus notes.

T: Not overly bitter, but nicely hopped. Again a mix between the citrus and pine aspects. Well balanced with biscuity and slightly caramel-tasting malt.

M: Not overly bitter, but a nice resinous oily feel.

D: Very drinkable, this would be an ideal session beer for a hophead.

Overall and excellent example of a delicious and refreshing IPA.

Poured into Bubble pint glass. Poured the typical orangey-amber IPA color. A nice white head that dissipated slowly, leaving a moderate amount of lacing.

A sharp, crisp hop aroma greets you as you lift the glass. Mostly the citrus aromas reach you upfront. The flavor follows the example set the aroma with some pine and floral hop lingering after the citrus fades.

Slightly better than average body for the hops to climb on. Nicely balanced hop flavors make this easy to have several of. Overall a slightly better than average IPA that is very enjoyable.

This brewery has been around for a few years now and it's good to them getting better distribution. They will opening a larger brewery soon and we should see more beers from them. Worth seeking out if you're in the PNW.
