12oz can

Pours about a half finger of white head into my can-style glass. The head is small, but it looks fine; though, I can hear it fizzing. Dark orange in color, somewhat hazy. Decent amount of bubbles coming up. Overall this looks ok so far.

Nose is pretty hoppy. Primarily a bitter, piney hoppyness. Sweetness is noticeable, and just slightly above average. Not a whole lot else going on here, maybe a tiny bit of grapefruit? Pretty simple. Overall not a bad nose, a touch sweet for my liking.

Yeah, just a tad too sweet here. Almost tastes like honey, which is nearly impossible to be intended. But who knows, maybe honey malt is big in Seattle. Bitterness is noticeable as well, but not very complex in its flavors. The honey is actually kind of nice here - there is a little stickiness from the sugars, but not much compared to some IPA’s. Overall this is fine, but not too much to write home about.

The mouthfeel here is nice. As already mentioned, the stickiness is not too bad. It has a pretty lively mouthfeel - the carbonation is medium, and the bitterness is there, but only lingers briefly.

The drinkabiltiy is very high. It’s not a perfect beer, but it’s tasty and easy to put back.

Overall this is an ok brew. Really standard, I can see why it’s one of their flagships.

The appearance turned out pretty mediocre. The lacing was spotty to say the least. The head was, eh. Overall, nothing amazing.

Pale golden color with a white head.

Orange and pine aromas, but tasted spicy hops the most. Pretty smooth balance of hops and malts other than that.

Body is a bit thin for my taste but a solid beer overall.

Clear dark golden, white head. Earthy, piney hop aroma. H
Medium hop Bitterness is balanced by some caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied, easy drinking.

Fresh from Seattle. The pour is a pale amber with a slight haze, citrus aroma and a bit yeasty. The taste is pretty muvh on-target west coast IPA with a little less body. The label says it's a 'session' beer but at 6.2% ABV, that's above our range.

A god, if not spectacular beer. Well-crafted and worth having a sixer or two on hand.

The appearance had a light hazy yellow somewhat golden color; light carbonation is seen rising, half fingered white foamy head slowly dies and leaves a decent amount of clingy lacing. The smell had some light bitter hops - somewhat citrusy yet smooth; malts do present themselves fairly well. The taste was a bittersweet througth the malts and hops, combined nicely, light malty sweet citrusy aftertastek quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, this was a good AIPA that I would have again.
