Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a thin, white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, and light, piney, lightly herbal hops. Flavor is dominated by light bready and biscuit malt, light citrus and grassy hops. Finishes with a pleasant residual grassy, somewhat piney hop bitterness. Medium bodied. A low key, well balanced IPA with subdued, but but not simple hops (web page says "lighter IPA", and that seems to fit this IPA). Not earth shaking, but a pleasant, malty IPA with enough character to stay interesting. The profile is a bit closer to a hoppy amber ale because of the biscuit malt and grassy hops.

Definitely a lighter IPA (and described as so by the brewery), so not quite as hop forward for true hop-lovers out there. That said, lovely color, great nose and very drinkable. Good for those who find traditional IPAs a little to bitter for their liking.

after a couple of well made but somewhat lackluster beers from these guys, i was surprisingly impressed by the exceptional ipa. from the tap its a tall and frosty white headed straw colored brew with a low orange glow and a lot of carbonation. its a classic northwestern hop complexion, lightly malty, and really darn fresh! heavy pine and grapefruit on the nose, more pine and woodiness in the flavor with some light orange or tangerine, and a cleanness uncommon in the style. its zesty and even a little spicy on the hops, especially at the end, but bitterness is only middle of the road, its intense without being offensive or over the top, a restrained sort of robustness. so fresh too, wow, the pine sap drips from this thing, and the light cereal malt base is just right for the hops here. almost has a wet hop vegetal property, but is so tidy in the finish, refreshing and scary drinkable. easily my favorite of the handful of beers i have now had from these guys, and one of the better hoppy beers i encountered on my trip to the northwest!
