Got a glass of this on-tap at a Thai restaurant called Bahn Thai that my wife and I are having dinner at that's almost across the street from our hotel. Good food here too! Served in a pint glass this beer is a clear, medium to dark amber color with a white head that's about 2/3 of an inch thick when first served. Settles eventually to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass along with some bits of small squatters of surface foam on the beer's surface. Aromas of slightly toasted, fairly bready and biscuity, caramel malts along with a nice citrus and piney, slightly resinous hop presence. The taste is pretty much the same, as it also consists of a bready, biscuity caramel malt sweetness along that gives way to a fairly citrusy, piney and resinous hop bitterness. Has a crisp, yet smooth, and frothy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish. A very solid beer here that complimented my spicy Thai food quite nicely indeed.

Too hoppy for me.
On the "1001" list, but many other better IPAs are not on the list.

This is a pretty good IPA. I think it suffers a bit by not distinguishing itself. It's smooth, moderately hoppy, and has little aftertaste. Pretty Darn Good.

Clear reddish amber with a modest foam in the Blanche de Chambly tall glass. Faint woody aroma. Poured from the 22 oz bottle purchased at Safeway in Anacortes.

This is pretty herbal and on the dirty side. Aftertaste is unrelenting bitterness. As it warms up, the sweet malt opens a little. Sharp and acidic with a resiny intensity. Finish is just that gummy bitterness.
