Delicious fruity and hoppy brew. It pours a clear (thank you) golden amber with plenty of foam in the Orval chalice. Aroma of grapes, even a touch of Concord, with light melon and green pepper. Hops are listed as Idaho 7, Mosaic, Citra, and Cascade. A nice combination. Very hoppy but not overly bitter.

Bold berry taste, lime peel, and grilled citrus. Moderate acidity but not overly astringent. A crisp and fruity brew that is pleasant to drink while being complex and full of flavors. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at the main brewery tasting room. This is the first in the "Cascade Peaks" series of IPAs.

Served in Willi Becher pint. Poured a lightly hazy orange yellow color with 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and moderate lacing.

The aroma was bright citrus hops over a light grain base.

The flavors were the same, with a nice bitter bite.

The body was medium, with a dry finish.

Drinkability was was good, I'll likely be knocking back a few more of these. Overall, a nicely solid brew, worth trying if you see it.
