Poured from a 22oz bottle into a IPA glass.
Look- copper, sediment, great head retention and lacing.
Smell- piney, slightly boozy.
Taste- piney, well balanced, slight bready malt note.
Feel- average carbonation, medium body, good action.
Overall- great beer, piney and ice balance with malt and hoppiness.

On-tap at brewery:

Pours golden yellow with a thin lasting head that leaves lacing.

The smell is floral with pine and some bready notes.

The taste is floral/pine. Bready pale malt balances it in the middle. Refreshing bitterness in the finish.

This easy-drinking IPA shows off the floral/piney hops well while keeping a pale, bready malt balance until the bitter bite in the finish. A nice American Northwest-style IPA.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thick and rather persistent fluffy eggshell head that pillows nicely. Aroma is more fruity than hoppy - largely apple and pear, but with an underpinning of Mandarin orange. Hoppy flavor has a nice fruity undertone, and here the citrus dominates the pomme. Texture is firm, smooth and fairly fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy finish.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Summit Public House in Seattle.

Appearance: foggy orange hue with a finger of frothy tan foam leaving a good lace on the glass. Quite good!

Smell: very sweet malt base with a sweet, grassy, herbal hop character atop. I like it.

Taste: herbal, earthy hops atop a sweet malty base. Bitterness is good for the style. A solid IPA; not a west coast citrus bomb, but quite good nonetheless.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge carbonation and a great creaminess, especially for the style. Woo!

Overall: really a quite solid and drinkable IPA. I dig it.
