Picked up a 22 oz bottle and decided to try my first beer from this brewer. It looks good, deep amber in color & a slight haze. Dense off white head that leaves a solid film and moderate lacing. Not much to the aroma, if you smell it when it's cold. Once it warms up a bit the subtle caramel malt and orange citrus come thru. Still nothing spectacular. The flavor lacks character, it's not that it's bad, it just is really kind of bland. It's a bitter, malted beverage. There is some grapefruit and pine notes there, but they don't do much for me. I could drink it, and I am not saying I'd be tortured, but it's not one I would choose to drink. A watery mouthfeel and bitter aftertaste. Nothing to recommend in my opinion.

Bottle split with friends last night.

Mostly clear light copper with a dense, off-white head, this looks solid. The nose is decent, a blend of pine and citrus without much pungency or bite. There's cooked fruit and a little caramel malt present. The palate opens with a little bitterness, some hop flavor, again, a blend of cooked oranges, a little pine and some mild grassy character. Mildly sweet, though not offensive, this beer finishes a little sweet, a little hoppy and utterly lacking in focus or definition. OK

22oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours perfectly golden and nearly clear, forming a very large white head. Citrusy, fresh, NW C-hop aroma. Columbus maybe? Bright, NW IPA flavors, not overly bitter, with simultaneously a crisp finish and creamy mouthfeel. A little bit thin through the middle. I'm very happy with this.

Pours a dark golden with a foamy white head.

Classic resiny, citric hops, with a solid caramel malt backbone.

Nicely done, though I found the malt backbone a bit heavy at times

Very mild, mellow IPA. Not very hoppy.
