On tap at a brewpub in Stevenson, Washington. Great piney, resinous aroma. Taste adds some citrus and sinsemilla, and very little maltiness. Mouth is just right for the ABV - medium body, almost dry, but with a touch of sweetness. Overall, a very solid and easy drinking Northwest IPA.

-crystal clear, golden bottle pour. Aroma is of citrus hops, Bitterness is moderate up front. Orange is prominent in the flavor and a there is a light resin note. This is a well-balanced and enjoyable IPA.

Picked up a bomber from the Craft Beer Hop Stop in late October for $4.99. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head that is still hanging around.

Nose is a moderate amount of grapefruit.

Taste is grapefruit forward over a light to medium pale malt base emphasizing a pithy finish.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a very nice beer that is worthy of a shot.

I'm still learning to love the IPA but if I'm thinking IPA this is what it tastes like. Not so hoppy my face turns inside out and only bitter enough to make me want another.

New one in this area--fresh bomber as a Christmas gift.

Bright clear golden brew with one finger head. Citrus all the way. Crisp clean on the finish and super easy going down. Glad some folks making good IPAS under 7%

Bottle:
Pours with a slight haze, golden with a slightly orange hue.

Nose is big on grapefruit pith with a pineapple to guava tropical note and even a little blueberry in back.

Flavor is a little more reliant on the grapefruit, but the notes from the smell all come out. Drying bitterness is strong, dank, mildly vegetal.

A nice strong bitter beer that has just a touch of sweet malt to not rip your taste buds off - but they don't come through completely unscathed.

A: Pours a clear medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate amounts of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy very light beige head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange pith, tropical/mango, tropical/pineapple, and herbal hops with a lighter aroma of dank resinous hops. Underneath there are light aromas of grainy + caramel malts with a hint of sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy, biscuit, and caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by the flavors of the hops - citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange pith, tropical/mango, tropical/pineapple, and herbal. The hops impart a moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just s hint shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: This is really easy to drink, bordering on being a session IPA due to the mouthfeel and the well hidden alcohol (though it is just a touch too high in ABV to be a session beer). Definitely worth grabbing and definitely a very nice beer.

A- Great clarity in the body and great head retention. Good lacing. Body is a full golden in color, not too pale and not too red or dark.

S- All hops on the nose with prominent pine notes up front, followed by a more herbal scent. The end of the smell is slightly more floral, but there is just a touch of onion scent in there too.

T- The flavor follows the same path as the scent, with the exception of the onion flavor, which is a positive. Upfront, the bitterness is still heavy in the pine and cedar notes, and also displays a touch of floral notes. The middle and back end of the drink sees an increase of the pine flavors as the bitterness ramps up. Finishes with lingering bitterness on the tongue, Not much, if any, malt is detectable throughout the drink.

M- Light to average in weight, this one has just enough body to support the strong hop profile while remaining easy drinking.

Overall, this is a solid IPA if you are looking for easy drinking IPA that still packs a hop punch. Big doses of pine and lightly floral hops keep you coming back for more.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Spieglau IPA glass.

Look is an orange yellow with a thick white head.

Aroma is orange and earthy and herbal.

Body is a little thin, but flavor completely matches aroma. Citrus and herbal earthy brightness.

Excellent beer.
