This IPA was a collaboration between seven breweries (Black Raven, The Ram, Naked City, Big Time, Elysian, Rogue and Schooner Exact) for Seattle Beer Week 2011. Available on tap at Schooner Exact and at Latona Pub, Hopvine and Fiddler's Inn.

On tap at the 24th Anniversary Party for Latona Pub in Seattle, WA. August 18th, 2011.

A: The beer pours a golden amber color with a fluffy head of white foam. There was light lacing that clung to the sides of the glass and slowly dissipated while drinking.

S: There was a nice aroma of grapefruit, orange peel and what I thought was a hint of cantaloupe. There were some pine notes as well as a light caramel hint.

T: There is an initial pine note along with some spice and citrus fruit. I noticed the melon in the taste as well as the aroma. Nice bitterness that is slightly mellowed by a consistent sweetness from the malt.

M: Very nice medium to light body for an IPA with a crisp mouth feel. The alcohol is hidden, making this a potentially sessionable beer.

O: I missed this back in May and June, so I was happy to hear that Latona had been hanging onto a keg for their birthday party. Seeing how this was a labor of love between numerous PNW breweries, I'm not sure if it will get made again, but I sure hope so.
