Another fabulous brew from these guys, great balance. I get a very jasmine perfume infused tropical IPA, that is layered over that beautiful graham cracker malt that Rueben’s excels at. Luscious fruity flavors, similar to Lush IPA ( Fremont) but finishes a little cleaner, with less lingering bitterness. Guava, mango, and papaya are present, some delicious citrus too, another excellent offering

Clear golden color with plenty of foam in the Timmermans goblet. Hot and sweet. Aroma of papaya with a whiff of gardenia. Honey taste along with orange marmalade and a bitter grapefruit finish.

This is so sweet and alcohol-tasting it's really one for the drawing room after dinner in the manor house. Still, it's so fruity it makes for a pleasant sugary sip. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham.

Pours a spectacularly clear golden straw, with off-white foam that quickly dissipates and doesn’t leave much lacing. Aromas of overripe citrus, tropical fruit and sweet malt. Flavor follows, with the addition of guava and grapefruit. Mouthfeel has prickly carbonation with above average viscosity. Overall, a very nice showcase of Citra hops, and a welcome break from hazies that fail to deliver the crispness that this has. Very well done.
